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.

We've had significant damage done to two clumps of sea grapes close to the house...I'm not sure yet just what these things turn into after they've eaten their fill.
The sea grapes have made a remarkable recovery considering the amount of damage they've incurred
...and they've even begun producing some fruit, tho not nearly what they've produced in the past.
