Today was a sunny beach day. Rented beach loungers and umbrella. Mid-day heat seems to hit in late morning. By 2:30 on the beach, it feels more like 4:30 on Pensacola Beach during the summer. The sun is lower in the sky and the breezes pick up. Makes sense since the sun sets at 5:30 here year-round. Being close to the equator (just 8 degrees off), there is little temperature change and daylight variation throughout the year. There is a rainy ...
... in shallow water for his daily fishing fun. He unravels the net and tosses it. After waiting a few minutes he gathers it back and checks for a catch. We did see him catch a large fish, which appeared to be a swordfish or marlin, so large in fact that he had to drag it from the beach as it was too big to carry. At that point he could sell it to a restaurant, sell it roadside, or take it home.
Shortly after morning coffee and fruit, the ...
Hola to everyone at home,
This morning started with corn pancakes, a new adventure for some (thanks to Mike). Then off to our morning devotional where Darin and Angela shared their testimonies. This touched many hearts of the Tia's and staff members.
At this point we headed off to our daily projects. Watch out LakeLand we have learned how to paint and have many DRIPS! We ...
... making three lanes of traffic out of two and the Maryland girls laugh their heads off when I say that the yellow highway lines are nothing but a huge waste of paint and a way to keep somebody busy painting them! There were a few times when we were all really scared and wondering if we would make it! We finally get into the little port town of Puntarenas, only to discover that the driver didn't know where to ...
We woke up at 6 this morning and it was not raining and it was clear outside!! We actually had a view of San Jose that wasn't just fog. So we took Carmen Miranda outside (she slept inside with us last night) and took pictures. Carmen Miranda walked around for a little bit but was still kind of hanging around but we were hoping she would just run off so we wouldn't have to leave her sitting right outside our door :( Eventually she went ...

The entire complex is located on the top of a mountian ridge some thirteen hundred above the blue Pacific below. Every night has a beautiful sunset which should be enjoyed while sipping a glass of wine or enjoying a sumptious meal. The rooms are spacious and comfortable the service is second to none. If there are any down sides the first is a lack of water pressure in the shower and changing temperature very minor. Second if you are not a fan of heights the driveway could be a challange but they you would not have the spectacular vistas from every room. This is close to the national park for jungle tours and the beach. A positive thumbs up.
