Ummmm….so this happened this morning.

So there we were, walking through a wildlife refuge near Cahuita.  I convinced Robert to set an alarm for the ungodly hour of 6 am “so the animals would be more active.”  We had been walking for about three hours, and we hadn’t seen much of anything — a few howler monkeys, some crabs, a few birds, etc.

P1090948The only thing we had really seen a ton of were lizards and ants (and you know we don’t really care about the ants).  We were walking along, minding our own business, watching the lizards, when all of a sudden a viper struck at a lizard only inches from my unprotected toes.  Yes, I screamed.  In fact, I screamed loudly enough that a guide leading some other people came back to investigate — he told me that he figured I saw a snake based on my scream…But at least I was brave enough to get this shot…

Lisa has a degree in biology and another in law and has spent the last 20 years working as a patent litigator. She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys. Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
