Start of the casita!

Today, the builder staked the location of the casita, and construction is set to begin on Monday morning. The weather is awesome these last few days, and it will be hard to leave the heat. Spent most of the day getting accounts set up at the bank, (hours of paperwork….really).  Tomorrow, plan to explore Betsys farm and forest behind my place, and then spend some time with her and David in the afternoon for some brown pops.
Saw some toucans yesterday in the trees at the front of this casita, very colourful birds with unique flight habits.


…….up at 6am on Sunday, a couple of naps, and beginning the trek at midnight……we are finally here. Wound up at the nicest cabina on the hill overlooking lake Arenal……sitting at the table enjoying a beer and some wine, after walking all over the town today. Dropped off some Canadian maple syrup to my neighbours Betsy and David, looked at the property, and tomorrow meet with the builder guy to begin the process. Good weather, a bit breezy, but nice. Met up with about 6 calves lying on the side of the road during our walk, none of them over a week old…..just babies. (dog sized). Settling into the rythm, dark at 6:30, up at 6:30……
