Favorite beach days
I think the rainy, stormy days were my favorite beach days in Tortuguero. As part of my study, I had to walk the entire 18 miles of beach up close to the vegetation, approximately once a week - you can imagine what it was like walking on a black sandy beach, on a very hot day, in very soft sand, leaping and dodging an increasing number of green turtle body pits. It was wonderful when the weather was stormy - coming from the land of the monsoon, I love the rain and long walks in the rain, I love dark clouds, strong winds, and a stormy ocean with large crashing waves. Of course, having firm sand to walk on made it just perfect!
