The "black beauty" would be our steed for the next week. Evan had asked us to carry the flower with us for the week so we would not forget about him... so it is present in many of our photos.


After a short ride we arrived at El Cafetal.




Before dinner we all spent a little time making final adjustments to the bikes (levers and gear organization mostly).

Then we walked the grounds a bit:












Morning light and breakfast:






Dinner preparations began in the outdoor kitchen (my crappy little camera had a had time with the light):

As we turned onto the Peninsula the roads became more interesting...


But there was a bit of traffic:


At the end of the road waiting for the boat launch:


La Paloma was the first of two Eco Lodges on the Peninsula de Osa:










We decided to walk back to the bikes rather than the launch. Because it was raining rather hard the lodge loaned us some very photogenic umbrellas:
