Finally a sunny day

Written 5/28
Ometepe is as great as everyone said it would be. After our fun night last night, we slept great. The temperatures are cool, our bed is one of the best in a long time. Not to hard..not to soft. We woke early this morning and hung around the hotel for a while...eating breakfast and talking to people. Most of the group from last night either left for Granada today or moved to other parts of the island.
We decided to check out Ojos de Agua, which the book said was some sort of swimming hole and that it was walking distance from the area that we are staying. We had a nice walk along the dirt road to the pool. The sky was blue and the sun was out..our first sunny day in a while. We passed cows being walked down the road and dirt bikes and buses and huge mud puddles. We got to the pool ready for a swim and it looked welcoming. The water was nice and crisp and we were told by the guy at the gate that the volcanic mineral water was great for all that ails us. We hung out there for a while, getting our $2 worth and eventually headed back to the beach and our hotel.
Other than that, we had a lazy day enjoying the hammocks and walking the black sand beach.
