May 2011

I'm on a horse.

Yesterday we went horseback riding for 3 hours! It was a bit intimidating at first (my first time and the caballeros didn't speak English, so very little instruction) but once I got the hang of it, it was quite fun. And gorgeous scenery: we started along the beach, then went through a private ranch & nature reserve (see cirenas.org), crossed a river, and back along the beach as the sun set. Breathtaking! Here are a few pix:

Each morning we surf at Playa Hermosa, the beach next to our resort. Incidentally, Giselle Bundchen has a house here (we can see it from the beach) and surfs here about 4 times a year. The only drawback is we were told not to bring our cameras (lest we tempt passers-by with unattended, expensive items), so I can't take any photos of us surfing. Note to future visitors: bring a disposable camera for this purpose. There will be a professional photographer there later this week to capture the action. Until then, I'll leave you with this:
