Returning home from our adventure, we found our suite lit by candlelight, with canapes and drinks on ice. Suren had been busy – how sad we were that we’d returned too late to appreciate it!
Because last night was the deck party. After a quick shower and change, we headed down to the pool deck where the usual furniture had been cleared away and the deck set out for dining. When we arrived, the fantastic Natures Rhythm trio were in full swing, playing foot tapping music by the Beach Boys and the Four Seasons amongst others. Just our style!
I was too busy having fun (and eating sushi) to take photographs, but I did manage one of the whole crew who had worked this magic for us. It’s a huge amount of work and involves a good deal of cooperation. It was good to have a chance to show our appreciation!
The immense buffet cleared away, it was time for the showband to begin and the dancing to start. A few ABBA tunes and the floor was full.
Around 10.30, we’d slipped away from Puntarenas without noticing and on this warm evening, just few people remained, savouring the last moments of what had been a fun evening.
This morning, no-one would have guessed that any of that happened at all.
