In which Mason contacts headquarters, executes a training exercise, and takes naps.
While three of the bodyguards left for their underwater training, Mason and his accomplices engaged in training exercises of their own.
First, Dad contacted HQ to update them on the mission status. Mason supervised this transmission.
Next, it was to the decontamination zone to remove any bugs or biohazards.
Mason also wanted to try out the decoy disguise he had been busy perfecting. He had Dad test run this disguise with him, and, though this reporter had a tough time telling the two apart, Mason was not totally satisfied with the test and informed his bodyguard, Dad, that he would be placing him on a strict weight management program just as soon as they returned to headquarters. Dad did not argue.
Mason and Gretchen also performed amphibious training together. Check out their moves.
After lunch, followed by another nap (this is how they do things in Costa Rica, and who was Mason to argue), Mason slipped into his Navy SEAL gear and made his way to the pool. Gretchen had informed him by way of her bodyguard, Jeanne, that there were UHMs (Unidentified Howling Monkies) in the trees just outside his room. This turned out to be true, and Mason pointed them out to Mom. He assured her that they were harmless other than the occasional flying poo.
After securing the pool, Mason and Gretchen rendezvoused on the beach, and, after a brief assessment of the sunset, made their way to la tienda and finally back to the hotel.
Day four was coming to a close, and, after a briefing back at Conner’s room, the three made their way to their quarters. Tomorrow would be another challenging day, and our hero needed his cutie sleep.
