There we were certified as scuba divers by Mario Vargas on our final checkout dive, and dove the Costa Rica coast with bull sharks.
Then and there - on July 11, we hung out by the hotel and watched our first total eclipse of the sun on the bluff overlooking the Gulf De Papagayos.
Yesterday Harlan, Rachel and Jonah arrived from LA on their West Coast college tour and enjoyed a dinner in North Beach.
Today we continue the road trip North with intent of getting in the way of the total eclipse on August 21 in Oregon, where we hope to share the experience with a plethora of relations.
For our first eclipse in Costa Rica, we worried about clouds obscuring the celestial event. We did see clouds as the eclipse began, but they cleared out in time for totality and the picture at the top of the page.
Oregon has a reputation for clouds and fog. We're hoping for the best.
First leg - Mendocino:

May the eclipse be with us. Stay tuned...
