Friday, we left the station early to arrive at the beach a little after lunch. When we arrived, we walked from our hotel to town along the beach. We wandered in and out of a little venders along the street. There was a large variety of different jewelry, hammocks, and various other trinkets.

Right before turning around, we found a little in-cove along the beach. It was absolutely beautiful and was a really also spot to reflect on how lucky we all are to have such an amazing experience. We have all had such an amazing time here in Costa Rica and we have all learned so much about the culture, research and ourselves! We have little access to TV, wifi, and many other things we take for granted in the United States. Its been an eye opening experience to realize how little those things really contribute to true happiness. We are very lucky to stay at a place were there are a ton of people studying really awesome subjects in the rainforest and are eager to answer all of our questions! I definitely going to miss being here when we leave.
|Here is a great group photo of all of us at the beach that someone nicely took for us!|

Overall, it was a relaxing and very memorable weekend away!
