Up at 5:30 cruising the beach was already warm and the poor turtles were stranded in all the wood washed up on the beach from high tide, about 5 of them then scurried back into the ocean.
Tom tightened up his steering bearing again and we then left our $40 a night room ,with pool and breakfast . Headed down to Quespa where Tom had lunch on a nice beach and then proceeded till dusk to Sierpe, not knowing where the hell we were , and found a so called lodge where they had no water or pop not to mention beer, served us some snapper that was oh so nice.
Got up at 5 am cause the fisherman next door didn't worry that we were trying to sleep so we got up and left our fine abode for Port Jimenez. It's open season on cocks here I guess they are scaring the terrorists away and are going to kill 800 !
Ferried across the Rio Sierpe and was a fantastic ride through the mountains not knowing where we were going to end up but knew we were going in the right direction, well so we thought. Would have been great to be able to speak Spanish, just the basics would have helped tremendously . Arrived in Rancan which wasn't too bad and then continued on to Port Jimenez where Tom had some pancakes and coffee.
I then went on a hike on my own for five hours in the rain forest. Once again I was ill prepared for a jungle hike, was lucky cause 2 German girls found me and we proceeded to a beautiful waterfall where we all took a well deserved dip, was very refreshing but ten minutes later you are just soaking again from the sweat and rain. Was a little concerned cause we were running out of daylight and I had forgotten my torch , the lady at the hostel sent out a guy to come look for me whom I met on the trail and told me to hurry back . Was a mud bog the rest of the way and had to wade through a river and got back at dusk and the old duck pretended she was happy to see me and could not believe that I had hiked to the waterfall. Ignorance is bliss.
