The beach

Cam and Madison

Playa Hermosa (Hermosa beach)

Taking a break


Yesterday Madison, myself, my friend Cam, Zoe, and another friend from school all went to a beach on the Pacific coast. This is a 2 1/2 bus trip from downtown San Jose, and then another 15 minute taxi drive to the beach. It's a beautiful black sand beach, and perfect for surfing. But, because it has great big waves, it has quite an undertoe - so we had to be very careful with the strong ocean currents. A few times we were caught by some waves, covered, and pulled under - but - we stuck together, and never were in real danger, just had to be careful. We only spent the day - but 6 hours in the sun was sufficient - caught the bus back, and arrived home by 8:30 at night. Exhausted, we both fell into bed and slept soundly! A great day overall.
