Monkey Tour Howling Success

Shelley, Art,  Daphne, Tom, Jacqueline and David were the eager beavers who got up at 5 a.m. for the Howler Monkey Kayak tour. The first half hour was a hard paddle across the river into the rising sun. As it became light we could start to hear the monkeys with their dog like growl. As we ventured up a narrowing stream the sound became louder and more varied but we could still not see the monkeys.  As the stream narrowed deeper into the jungle we spotted them high in the trees. Finally we were able to see a mother and her two babies. Mom not moving much but babies playing. With no telephoto it was difficult to get a picture but if you look close you will see baby playing above mother.All in all an excellent adventure. A howling success. A magic time we will all remember forever._MG_7765
