I greet you and hope that you are doing well. I know you have a lot on your plate right now and only wish to distract you a few moments in the hopes that you can share is some of the adventure. Friday, was a long hike on a deserted beach – La Playa Hermosa.
I walked until I found a good meditation spot a little palm covered lean to where I watched the waves coming in and going out with my breath coming in and going out.
However, by the time I got back from my hike (about 8 miles) the tide was coming in and it became more difficult to walk on the ever slopping beach with softer sand so I got quite a work out for my legs and feet. Especially, coming after a 2 hour horseback adventure the day before so I was pretty sore.
National Geographic was there
along with a Jimmy Hendricks themed yacht “Kiss the Sky” flying a British flag (maybe Noel Reddings?)
and to book a zip line tour for Monday. However, I ended up going to the Zip line place in Herradura to book the adventure at a place called “los Sueños (dreams) adventures”. The girl at the desk was actually standing outside of her office as she preferred the “hot” to the cool air conditioned office she was in saying it was “too cold”. I thought it was fine and it was too hot at 88 degrees F outside, but hey I’m not native.
Hello my name is Apollo I like to run by the sea my footsteps all rhyme with the passage of time as my feet slap wet sand by the sea Come with me now and follow follow me down by the sea feel the hot sun warming your skin as you jump in the waves for a swim This morning while running in Jaco The sun shinning off the wet sand I saw near naked bodies soaking up sun and thought to myself Pura Vida
Now and then, a wave washes to my knees slowing me down I’m wading and waiting for the wave to recede so I can get back to my run
I like to do yoga in the morning before I take off for my run Salutes to the sun sending love to everyone as I sit on the sand by the sea
The sound of the ocean around me the crashing and rippling sounds of waves out at sea, and white water swash as the waves come rolling towards me
I see the waves breaking before me Rolling and crashing on the sand meditations done it’s time for my run and my feet slap wet sand by the sea
Now and then, a wave washes to my knees slowing me down wading and waiting for the wave to recede so I can get back to my run
How I love what’s before me Teaching me to slow down No need to please just do as you please Everyone say - “Pura Vida”
Pura Vida! I love life - Pura Vida! Pura Vida! living life - pura vida!
I’m running again through the beach sands of Time running and enjoying my life Thinking to myself I’m glad for my health as my feet slap wet sand by the sea
People pass by me and smile as I run mile after mile My foot slapping rhyme on the wet sands of Time and I say to my self Pura Vida
A foot slapping rhythm is keeping the time as my feet slap wet sand by the sea as my feet slap wet sand by the sea Well that's it from Central America for today. Time to go to the beach for yoga, a run and a swim before breakfast. Namaste and Pura Vida Apollo (standing in for Steven)
