The weather the last few days has been rainy and overcast. It is actually a great thing as it has been so dry here the last few months that those on city water are under restrictions as to when they can use water and those who have wells are finding them drying up. So we are all delighted that it is finally raining here. But this morning there was a break and the sun was out so I headed on down to the beach for a walk. As usual I cam back with a renewed appreciation for where I live.
One of my favorite things is watching the wild horses meandering up and down the beach. These two were just hanging out drinking water from the river but also from the ocean. There were a lot of people out enjoying the day as well and lots of birds chasing bugs.
I passed by our local neighborhood bar, The Point, which has had an ongoing project for the last few months – they are planning to launch a party barge!! People from all over have donated and it is now ready to hit the water. The only problem is that now the water is a bit too rough so the formal launch has been delayed to the end of the month. I have to say that I had little faith that they were going to pull this off but I have been proven wrong. I will definitely be there to watch this huge raft hit the waves
A few weeks ago, we met up with some old and new friends in Cahuita and had lunch. Casey Bahr (A Dull Roar), his wife Tamara, and son Sean, were visiting Kimberly Beck Hovland and husband Barry (10 Degrees Above) at their property outside of Limon. We met the Bahr’s a couple of years ago on their first trip to the Caribbean side of the county and were delighted to see them again and meet Kim and Barry. We had a great lunch and a terrific time catching up.
One of the highlights was seeing the painted rocks that Tamara has created. She is an incredibly talented artist and has proven it again with these. A photograph does not do them justice – they are stunning! I am looking for a shop here in Puerto Viejo that would want to sell them and have had a couple of leads. Most people was to sell using commission only but I am going to try again when the tourists begin arriving for the high season in December. I think they would sell like crazy as souvenirs.
So now I am off to hang out on my new back deck, read, and watch a little American football while enjoying the view.
Life is good
