Costa Rica Day 4 – Client Arrival Day

Jason, Jimmy and I decided to sleep in (if you call 8:00 am sleeping in). When you have a 2 year-old and an 8 month old at home you could not sleep past 7:00 am if you tried. With an unreal swell on the way and double sessions for the next 6 days, the rest would definitely be needed. We spent most of the day running errands, checking on eateries, reviewing client backgrounds, double checking flights and prepping rooms for everyone’s arrival. By 4:00 pm all was accounted for, including luggage.

We caught up on the past year, met new faces and all went or a surf. Tonight the surf was small, around waist high so everyone just got loosened up in the 80 degree water. We surfed past sunset. Mike, from Oregon, grabbed up some Imperials and just about everyone got in the infinity pool and continued to chill.

We gathered for our group orientation in the courtyard to set the week in motion.  After introductions and reminding everyone of teh meaning of  “Tico Time”, we then ate some delicious food and everyone crashed after a full day of travel and excitment. 5:30 am was sure to come fast.
