Trip Update #1 - February 2020


We are back home and mostly caught up with what we can during the pandemic.  We had two family trips so far this year.  I hopefully will be able to download Mom's photos after things normalize and get some blog posts up from her trip.  Our family went down to False Bluff a few days after Mom got back.  Unfortunately with so much to do back home its difficult for everyone to visit at the same time.

It was very nice to get the family back down after having missed our last trip.  We usually fly American Air through Miami but the prices had gotten pretty high and the normal early flight was not available.  Its nice to be in Nicaragua before lunch and be able to fly LaCostena to Bluefields in the afternoon.  This trip we tried something new.  Affordable Spirit red-eye flights through Fort Lauderdale.  

Great price but hard to do with kids.


After some late night pre-flight running around with a bunch of other kids our boys finally slowed down a bit.  They stayed awake through the flight until we got to the hotel.  We stayed at the Airport Hotel X in Managua the Monte Cristo neighborhood.  Everyone finally fell asleep around 3am Managua time.  


Visiting the pet monkeys at the hotel before our LaCostena flight to Bluefields.

Cabins are Closed In

Cabins are finally getting closed in.  For the most part at least.  Will still need from the wall up to the roof closed off.  Soon the interior work will begin.  






Still trying to figure out how to handle the utilities.  Even with the epoxy paint on the transformer it is still failing.  Will update on what the final decisions are.

Always planting

While construction may move at a slower pace, it does give plenty of time to plant.

Quality Deck Time

Going to be a good place to relax once the cabins are finished up.

Building Supplies from BLU to FaB


Building in the jungle can be difficult.  Having to cross the bay, go through a couple lagoons, and up a canal can make transportation of heavy construction supplies challenging.

Happy New Year 2020

Its been a few years since we started this family blog to document the progress of making False Bluff a reality.  The slow expansion has taken a lot of time and effort.  None of this could have been accomplished without the great people we have met and worked with in Nicaragua.  Thanks again as always.

For those of you that follow this blog or just happened across a post or two.  We hope you enjoy and gain some information.  One day we will hopefully have a place we can open up to visitors.  Please feel free to e-mail us if you have any questions.

As of today we have posted up 504 blog entries.  We have had over 210,000 total posts viewed.





Enjoy and Happy New Year
