On a cloudy day, La Costena Airlines carries me from Managua to Bluefields on the Caribbean coast as I watch the beautiful patchwork quilt of Nicaragua unfold below us. Nicaragua is about the size of New York state and the plane is about half way to the east coast.

I found this treasure on a beach walk more than a year ago. She spent most of the intervening time - between the finding and when the house was finished - wrapped in an old towel. Right after I folded my tent I polyurethaned and hung her at the entrance to the house. (She may be a male dolphin...I couldn't tell.)
