Nicaragua - Las Isletas

On our final full day in Nicaragua, we took a boat trip through Las Isletas - 365 small (sometimes very, very small) islands in Lake Nicaragua right off of Granada - and spent much of the day on an island owned by our guides, an interesting French couple who ran the touring company along with a group of native guides.  They showed us lots of flowers and birds, including the egrets that seemed to be everywhere, but sadly, we didn't manage to see any of the rare fresh-water bull sharks that live in the lake.  We did get to meet Cashew, the white-faced monkey who lives on the island, though Amelia and Soren never got fully comfortable with him being around.  They had a lot of fun swimming in the lake, and kayaking around the island with Daddy.  Definitely a memorable end to an amazing trip!
