Back from Costa Rica....

Sorry I have not posted in awhile...I needed a little break after a difficult month and we also took a trip to Costa Rica to visit my best friend who recently moved there. We had a really wonderful trip and I have a bunch of pictures to share with you of this beautiful country. The motto there is "Pura Vida" which translates into "pure life" and that is how the people there try to live. Costa Ricans are really warm and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their country. We spent the first half of our vacation just outside of Jaco at Hermosa Beach with our friends the Dolsey's. Hermosa is a popular surfing beach and has a very laid back feel to it. The waves were huge, the black sand beach was beautiful and I met the coolest dog in the world there...her name was Buddy Girl. She was the ultimate beach dog who spent her days walking the beach, playing in the ocean, hanging out with her other dog friends and entertaining herself with coconut husks for hours at a time. She came along at a time when I needed a sweet dog to ease my own aching heart...Here are some photos of her and Hermosa Beach...




You can really get used to this kind of lifestyle...I didn't have a clue as to what else was happening in the world and I have to say it was nice for a change...just to unplug. I will post more photos tommorrow...Pura Vida!
