The Perfect Scent

Last night it started to rain. It rained all night and in between the sounds of the ocean and the rain drops hitting our thatch roof; nothing could be more peaceful. We woke to the same sounds early this morning.

Things are sleepy here today and the weather is massively cooler which is appreciated by the few tourists that are here. The locals think norte's bring brisk temp and they are dressed in light weight jackets. It has to be around 72 degrees but you would never see a thermometer anywhere around here. Quite honestly, you would be lucky to even find out a weather forecast.

Right now, we're sitting in the palapa style restaurant and we can hear the tropical birds singing in the palm trees. The smell of rain is in the air for the rest of the day - so they say. No one seems too bothered - and neither are we. It's perfect.

We were scheduled to take the classic island tour of three small islands to see a bird refuge, a fresh water lagoon that feeds into the ocean and a beach for shelling. There are quite a few promises of us seeing white dolpins swimming along the way. We will cancel that for today and put it on our busy agenda tomorrow (wink).

Until then, I guess we'll have mojitos for breakfast and take a nap.
