an adventure. costa rica

June 10 2014 031

somewhere in the mid nineties, a handful of my friends began to venture out to costa rica

it seemed that they searched for a more natural/raw place, an easier way of life and even better surf than what beautiful san diego had to offer

Deanna was one of those friends

through the years she would travel back and forth from the states to costa rica, getting to know different parts of costa and eventually meeting her husband there and settling in platanillo

Deanna had showed me pictures of the costa house that she and her husband had built from scratch on a piece of land they bought

but, nothing prepared me for how breathtaking everything about where they live truly is

it was like being at a tropical version of my in-laws in west virgnia

painting worthy views out of every window

with an always changing landscape due to the weather and clouds

i took a lot of pictures in costa rica. we were there for five days

i am not sure how to even begin the costa posts

and to tell you the truth, i am still somewhat in a vacation fog and my eyes are already going through withdrawals from all the beauty they saw

i guess i will post as i go along with the editing of all the pictures

happy friday friends

it is our first weekend back and we have some catching up to do

wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
