Costa Rica – Day 8 – Playa Conchal – Brasilito & Sunset

We continued with what has become somewhat of a routine: breakfast then pool. It’s a great way to start the day. Today was the day we saw A LOT of iguanas. Here’s a small sample. There were more I didn’t take photos of. Around 1:30 pm, we headed down the beach path heading northish to…

Costa Rica – Day 7 – Playa Conchal – Sloth Sanctuary

I had another 8+ hour night! Spectacular. I should also mention I’ve been dreaming very vividly every night. Sandy gets to hear about every dream in the morning, and then they’re gone. They are varied and weird and not related to Costa Rica at all. This morning, it was time for our Covid test to…

Costa Rica – Day 6 – Playa Conchal (Westin)

Last night I slept 8 hours and 18 minutes. The closest I’ve come to sleeping that long was back in July when I slept 7 hours and 57 minutes. (Thank you for tracking my sleep, FitBit!) I guess I was tired! We made our way out to the grounds, stopping at the Coffee Lounge to…

Costa Rica – Day 5 – Arenal to Playa Conchal

We had an 8:40 am pick-up time this morning so we were able to have a bit of extra time than we’ve had past mornings. We got the rest of our stuff together and headed to breakfast. We both again had the Costa Rican breakfast, which was really good. Then we noticed some folks out…

Costa Rica – Day 4 – Arenal – Hanging Bridges and La Fortuna

We had another early morning start. We went to breakfast and both opted for the Costa Rican breakfast which was rice & beans, fried egg, tortilla, cheese, and plantains. Plus we started with a fruit plate. This morning was extremely sunny and clear, so clear, in fact, we could see the cone of Arenal very…

Costa Rica – Day 1 – LAX to San Jose

After watching the season finale of Ted Lasso on Thursday night with Mom & Sandy, I went to bed since our Lyft was arriving at 6:30 am to take us to LAX. (The finale was great btw.) Our driver, Maria, was right on time and we headed out after kisses and hugs with Mama. Today…

hey there, hi there, ho there

Well, I let the summer completely go by without a post here of any kind. Summer was good. It was hot. Really hot at times. In mid-June, Sandy came to visit us for the first time since February 2020. She stayed for a week and it was great. We went to San Diego, we went…
