Ometepe Island

Today we took a ferry ride to Ometepe Island. In the native language of long ago, Ometepe means 'two hills' and the hills in question are Concepcion Volcano and Madera Volcano. It is truly a beautiful island and JD's favourite place to be.
Here's Elsie driving the ferry. It was rough water going across and while everyone was happy and content, I lay crumpled on the deck, not daring to move lest I lost my lunch.
Here's Averyl with a volcano looming behind her. The clouds are so low that they are hugging the peak and obscuring its true size.
