So our first full day in Costa Rica started with breakfast, of course. Most of our meals were at Kike’s. It’s a restaurant about 10 minutes from the beach. The owner is named Kike (pronounced key-kay), and he is very nice. He takes good care of everyone who comes to visit the turtles. I spent the morning making my rounds at the table.
You know, doing the meet and greet. It’s hard work being an ambassador, but you already know that.
That's me with Dr. Hal, who works with Knittah's Dad, and Hal's mom. She's been to Playa Grande a bunch of times.
This last picture is one of my favorites.
This is Oscar and Barbara, old friends of Mom and Dad. They knew Knittah when she was just a little baby. They are the nicest people, and they even let me borrow some sunglasses!
