It's been two months since I've seen baby Dash. I haven't wanted to talk about it. My heart ached. The other day I finally cried and let him go with love. The memories and photos I will always cherish. What happens when one accepts a wild sloth has moved on... Continue reading

As you drive into the beach town of Samara it's hard to miss LuvBurger. It was on my "must try" list when I went to Samara recently. The family wasn't into giving it a try when we were there in May. Not only did I go to LuvBurger once, I... Continue reading

One morning while I was staying at El Sueno Tropical the howlers decided to visit. They came for the ripe mango. It was such a treat to enjoy my morning coffee with them. An amazing blessing to have them stay around the entire day! Continue reading

Bill suggested we take a drive to la Feria Verde Aranjuez for Mother's Day. He's not a farmers market kind of guy. Never has been. Probably never will be. Still, on special occasions he'll go with me because I enjoy it. That's love. :) We've been to la Feria Verde... Continue reading

Hubby spotted this fascinating bird at the point in Puntarenas. We had no idea what it was until we got home and consulted our bird book. It turns out it's a Green-backed heron. Apparently a young one. Bill commented on his lack of fishing expertise. Continue reading

It was such a beautiful morning, Hubby and I decided to take a drive to the shore. We drove down to the point in Puntarenas to see the new light house and promenade. It's wonderful!! We always enjoy watching the boats come and go. Now there are plenty of seats... Continue reading

We've settled into rainy season. Some days it rains in the afternoon. Some days all day. Others, not at all. This is why it's called the green season! The greens pop with the blue sky. So pretty after the rain. Roads flooded, cars stuck in ditches. Even transitos (traffic police)!... Continue reading

Has it been that long Paul? Time gets away from me. All is good we're just busy living life. And sampling all the sweets along the way. It's getting harder and harder to sit down and do blog posts. Got a million thoughts floating in my head but no time to get them written. I'm starting to use devices other than the desktop, tablet, smartthanme phone, etc. I'm not ready to type posts on a teeny tiny keypad yet! Things are settling down around here (she types hopefully) so I'll get some posts up soon.

Honestly, I have no idea what kind of mushroom this is. What ever it is, there is no way I'm going to eat it. When exposed to the sun they get well... burnt. This one looked cooked so I brought it home for more investigation. After further investigation, no matter... Continue reading
