Back in Puerto Viejo....

      This FIRST thing I did when we got back was RUNNNNN to the doctor to have my toe looked at. He confirmed my suspicion that it was infected (staph) and that I had to get it cleaned out and to start on antibiotics immediately.... So, after he anesthetized the toe and cut a portion off of the nail and cleaned the puppy out!  I started on Amoxcillion that day!  After about 1 1/2 days, it was already feeling a TON better! YAY!!! Thank you sooo much, Doctor! 

When it rains, it POURS... torrentially speaking, of course!!  That's the tropics for you! 

Saw wild horses on the beach.. but this one paid a visit to the neighhood- hungry and salvaging through the trash bags!

I simply MUST find out the name of these birds because they make the COOLEST nests EVER!! They swing like pendulums.. SOOOO cool!
