Wednesday, 10-27-2010, Day 5 of the Poz Cruise; The ship arrived in Limon, Costa Rica and had to meet at pier at 10:15 for our excursions. There were 3 planned, Zip Line, White Water Rafting and tour of the rain forest.

Some guys from our group went on a tour of the rain forest. Costa Rica is a beautiful country with very nice and friendly people.

I choose the White Water Rafting along with 35 other people from our group. We took buses out to a camp site where they gave us a short class on rafting procedures and then we took the buses over to the launch area where we got life jackets, helmets and a paddle. We had to divide up into groups of eight per raft plus a tour guide. Wearing water shoes, sun block and a change of clothes was a good idea. We were going to get wet. I got into a raft with 3 other guys form PozAttitudes, and 4 other guys from the cruise.

We launched from shore raising our oars with a great bonding cheer and enthusiasm.

Right into the rapids we went with our guide yelling out instructions. We had to work together as a team to navigate the raft through the rapids.

At times I imagined myself a Viking and other times I thought I heard the dueling banjos from Deliverance. This was my favorite excursion.

We watched as someone fell out of another raft and was quickly rescued. This was challenging and exciting.

After the excursions, they buses us back to the ship where I had time for a nap beore dinner. Sleeping and eating and then eating and sleeping, what a life!

Another view of the atrium. At dinner I had an assortment of appetizers, the Rack of Lamb, and Tiramisu for dessert.
