As you can see, this is something we've been thinking about for about a year now... but "real" life seems to keep getting in the way to delay this trip.
We'd like to stay a month or so... NOT stay in a large city, but to rent a place in a small town or village that has a kitchen and bath. A pool isn't necessary, but internet is.... walking distance to a market would be desirable.
No, we wouldn't be driving down, but flying out of DFW to San Jose..... taking public transportation or renting a vehicle once there.
We've never been real interested in taking a "birding" tour... while we're both avid birders, neither of us are fanatics. Seeing and living the "local" life has been higher on our priorities, but... hey, we'll takes what we gets. ;-)
So... if any of you who may be reading this have spent time in Costa Rica, or know of any contacts from whom we could glean some information.... we'd be grateful for any help we can get.
I changed my "header" picture this morning. Just a word about that... Daffodils are my favorite flower (and maybe our daughter, Donna's as well). I planted tons of bulbs around my place in Ohio when I was first married in 1961. While that marriage didn't work, the bulbs thrived. I dug them up and replanted them on the farm in 1982 when Bill & I got together. There are daffodils everywhere there now! Last year, Bill dug a bunch of them up and brought them here to Texas. He planted them here at our daughter, Celeste's house. There are 4 blooming as I write. That picture, with our rig showing in the background, is very special to me.... kind of a reminder that life goes on... no matter what our plans might have been.
By the way, I wish I could come up with some outrageous outfit to wear and have my picture taken in, but.... we don't even have our Lazy Boy recliners anymore, let alone anything but the basics in attire.... my jeans have barbed wire tears in them, my shirts are all permanently stained with various things... I haven't changed out my earrings in at least 3 years... Boy! Are we boring!
All for Today.....
