The View From Here - Surf Simply Resort

Photo Time!

sunny 30 °C
View Surf Holiday '11 - Costa Rica on Exitalterego's travel map.

As I'm sure people are aware, generally speaking cameras and see water don't mix, so I don't have any real photos of my surfing in my possession (they do exist and I will be getting hold of them as soon as I can). However, I have taken some pics from around the resort that I'm staying in, so have decided to do a picture post. I'll try and explain the photos with some small captions.

The view of Surf Simply from the road outside

A useful place for trying to dry your clothes. Sadly, not somewhere you'd want to sit though due to the large number of bugs

The main room. Again, I didn't spend much time here as sitting by myself would have been kind of sad

This room I did spend some time in. Sadly I had to share it with a whole load of ants

So many lovely boards!

Two shots of the pool area, the first one using my fancy fish-eye lens, the second using my fancy panoramic camera settings

This is the Rancho, the social/dining/kitchen area of the resort

This is how we get to and from the beach. The truck is for the guests, the quad/trailer combo for the boards (just in case anyone needed that explaining!)

The local wildlife here isn't exactly timid. This guy, along with the rest of his family, were in the trees on the other side of the road. He is a white-nosed coati.

More photo's will follow at some point, most likely next week.
