The west side of the casita (facing San Luis village)…..
The ceilings are closed in now, ready for paint and light fixtures.
The kitchen area, beginnings of the countertop….
The living room area……
Arrived back about March 11th. Had to take some time to reconnect with life here. Different pace, different life, for sure. Had a blast down south doing exactly what I wanted….when I wanted. Fishing, hiking, walking, swimming…..
Went deep sea fishing for the first time ever…..caught a sailfish and saw lots of them. Turtles, dorado, lots to see. Went out on the “Rosa Lu” from Herradura near Jaco. 25 miles out to the Peruvian current where there were tons of fish.
Walked miles and miles when Mo was visiting…..
Drove all over the place, to the coast, to Nicaragua, to the volcanos in the north. Everywhere.
Went fishing for bass almost every day in Lake Arenal. Caught some “machata” fish…. Saw my first snake in the wild….long and black with green markings. Like a ribbon on the trail ahead of me.
Found the place for me in Tronadora, near Lake Arenal. Good village, clean, neat, interesting….lots of places to eat, sights to see, and close to Tilaran…..a small town about 5 minutes away on the flank of the mountains where the Guanacaste begins.
Took some pics, will post a few at a time on here.
Experienced a national election wherein they elected the first woman President…..
All in all a neat time away.
….and suffering a bit of sunburn from hiking all yesterday. Saw some howler monkeys, toucans and other birds . Found some interesting fruits on the property and Mo made salads for supper. Checking out the village more today…..
