BOB AND CAMILLE IN NICARAGUA

 

PICNIC IN THE PARK

CAMILLE AT 51

Camille turns 51 at the Camino Real in Nicaragua on June 4, 2005.

 

HOTEL WILDLIFE

A little herd of two dozen deer rest in the shade on the other side of the tennis courts.

Busy leaf-cutter ants, take flower petals back to their hole.  They are farmers, growing their food - mold - on the vegetation they collect and store beneath the ground. 

 

IGUANA WILDLIFE

Back at Casa Iguana, this large beetle flew into our room, sounding like a B-52 and startling us with it's huge size.

 

ZINC

   All roofs are made of zinc in the tropics, unless, for some reason you aren't planning on using it to catch water.  This zinc came on the Saturday afternoon barco, June 18 and was brought over to the Iguana beach in a small boat for easier unloading.

 

MOLLY MAKES IT TO NICARAGUA

Flying by herself, Molly braved the humiliation and confusion of International travel to come visit us and arrived in Managua on June 21st.

 

WHERE ARE THESE TWO GOING?

Bob met Molly in Managua and flew with her to Corn Island to catch the panga to Little Corn.

 

FLYING OVER NICARAGUA

Molly enjoys the view from the tiny plane on her way across the country.

 

MAKING CANDLES

A necessary activity if one wishes to enjoy candlelight after the sun goes down.

 

KINDNESS

Here Yamilette demonstrates one of the many forms of generosity by picking hot wax off Molly's foot.

 

REAPING THE REWARD

And there was light!

 

PLAYING WITH THE DOGS

Molly enjoys the company of the Iguana dogs, with Maiko in her lap and Walker at her feet.  Gizzie and Bucky look for ways to horn in on the action.

 

THE BABY

Maiko, the baby of this dog family, basks in Molly's affection.

 

TINY SANATES

Two baby Great-tailed grackles hunker down in their nest, which has fallen from the tree onto the fence that surrounds the staff area.

Kimo took a great interest in the nestlings but was unable to find a way to take them as her own.

 

DOODIE

Doodie hangs out on our porch on the last day of the month.

THIS MONTH'S QUOTES:

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope... and, crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy

"It's a sad and stupid thing to have to proclaim yourself a revolutionary just to be a decent man. " David Harris

"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against its government." Edward Abbey

"I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. and cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth." Janeane Garofalo
