The Tsunami Skydiver Group Landed in Gran Pacifica

The Tsunami Skydiver group landed at Gran Pacifica yesterday and then played a round of golf on the seaside course. Â Rich Grimm, founder and coordinator of the jump was on the ground to light the smoke signal and bring the jumpers home. Â A crowd on on lookers and a ground team was in place to fetch the jumpers.

Long time friend and jumper, Nick Furchner (pictured) and his wife Amy spent the day at the resort and enjoyed a whole snapper (Pargo Rojo) for lunch after packing up the chute and downing a cold Tona beer.  I'll be taking them on a little tour of this part of Nicaragua Wednesday.  We'll see the Masaya Volcano, an active crater with smoke and gasses galore.  Then we'll head to Granda, a 475 year old colonial city for a walk about and lunch.  And then we'll cool down for a boat ride on Lake Nicaragua and explore several of the  isletas (small islands) and will have some more photos of our fun together.
