Day 9: After all the adventures for the last two days, we took it easy today and just enjoyed swimming and relaxing. I decided I would just do a sunset blog post. Sunsets here are beautiful!

2015-10-23 18:20 Dawn: So nice to get sunset pictures... I love them... I really love the picture of Oliver...

Day 8: In the morning we loaded our rental car and headed to find our adventure for the day!

Overall I think roads in Costa Rica are pretty great... but there are some interesting sections out there :)

Our timing was perfect.. as soon as we got hungry, it started to rain and we pulled in to some local place for some pizza :)

We did hours and hours of pretty hardcore off roading today... This little Toyota did great! I'm sure 99% of all Toyota Rav4 in Canada will never see this much off road in their lifetime as our car did today... great adventures! You can see the volcano in the distance... on our way!

2016-01-20 21:52 Taposy Rabeya: Love all photos but these hill photo is my most favorite.
2015-10-28 20:07 Tracy Belski: I loved the hike at Arenal Volcano, the tall looking grass made you question if it was giant or if we'd been shrunk!! All fun and games until you lose your partner, you scale a rocky volcano and your toddler gets to pee atop said volcano--what other little boy can say that? :)

Day 7: My favourite part of any vacation.. rent a car and explore! We rented a car for a couple of days and in the morning we headed to Palo Varde National Park. We were given some Costa Rican money by Tracy's mum, so this trip to the park was pretty much covered by her... Thank you!

Original plan was to go and get a boat at the park for some wild life viewing but we are here off season and the boats were not there :( We still had fun! We went on this little trail with a beautiful view at the top :)

I really needed some more artistic shots, so to recharge my creativity we went for a walk on the beach at the sunset.

Day 5: Now that I'm a coffee drinker for 2 days (yesterday I took a day off)... I started my day with a cup of coffee :) Just a short blog post today, nothing exciting, just relaxing.

2015-10-19 15:05 Chris & Kim: Love the pics Sergei! Oliver looks like he is having an amazing time!
2015-10-19 14:26 Sergei Belski: Red flag is because of the stingrays.. at least that is what they told us.. we are still swimming.. the beach is amaizing and the water is so warm and nice... great times! Red flags are a problem in a way that they dont want to give us any rental equipment to use and we would really love to try paddle boarding :(
2015-10-18 21:01 Dawn: Great pictures Sergei. I love seeing how much fun your family vacation is going. I see the red flag, so I take still no swimming in the ocean. That's kinda sad.

Day 4: In the morning we had some family time at the beach and the pool.

I did see 3-4 wild monkeys on my hike.. but you may have noticed that all my photographs today are taken with 24-70 wide angle lens... well... after yesterday's rain and with all the humidity and air-conditioning... My big lens stopped working and I don't know if I will be able to fix it while I'm here, so I guess I will be only able to shoot with wide angle :( When I arrived back at the resort, I saw a bunch of friendlier monkeys and was able to take a few shots.

Day 3: Today is my birthday, I turned 36 years old :) Today also is when I drank coffee for the first time... I can't say I like it, but I'm scared I will get into it. If you ever seen movie "Kicking and Screaming"... you may know what I mean.. I think that could be me :)

The tide was pretty low and exposed a bunch of rocks, so we decided to go for a little walk on the beach in the morning.

As soon as I got to a pretty steep hill, it started to rain... hard! And that is when I found a few monkeys.. they were very close and If not for the rain, I would love to stay and take better photographs but I had to turn back and head down.

Day 2: Second leg of our journey... Houston to Liberia, Costa Rica. Waking up very early in the morning in Houston was tough for Oliver and the rest of us but it had to be done :)

Once in a while Oliver would take my camera from me and would ask if he can take a photo... he is actually pretty good at it for a two and a half year old. I have a collection of his good images now... Here is a photo of me that he took when we were taking off :)

Yesterday Tracy had her big bike ride with her company as Calgary Corporate Challenge. Oliver and I went as well to support her, and after close inspection of the bike, Oliver was ready for the ride. If you look closer you will see Oliver is on Tracy's back fro the actual ride :)
