Journal Entry:
Got up to find the sun shinning spread all the damp gear all over the hotel's terrace (I'm sure they were thrilled). After everything was dry and packed and we'd watched just a little more TV we set off. The only remarkable part of the drive was the remains of a tanker truck accident. You see lots of wrecks in this part of the world - but this one was remarkable.

Got to Coco Beach just before sunset. Had beers while watching the sunset and listening to a decent reggae band with really bad sound equipment. Went into town to go back to Champs for diner. We'd been anticipating the food here for several days and we went crazy (I had two appetizers, three ribs, and a giant burger!)
