Hope that you have been getting thru this really tough January if you are anywhere in the "polar vortex" area!!!... I have been extremely lucky and have been away from all the dreariness of my least favourite season.
So this year, we are fulfilling one of our goals and we are being snowchickadees down south. Remember when I talked about goals before (if not, here is a reminder)... when you make goals, MAKE THEM SPECIFIC!!... one of my goals is to have a cottage in the summer in Ontario, and spend winters down south. Of course, I naturally thought of Florida..as most Ontarians do... but...
my husband, who has been more specific all year long last year, and put it out almost daily to the universe that he wanted to spend the whole winter in Costa Rica... (he was down there in March for 3 weeks... and fell in love with the Ocean).. This is from a man who I could never get to vacation down south and fry on a beach with... "no boring south for him.."
I'm glad that he was clearer on our goal than I was. I put in the finishing touches and stated "We will be in a gated community house, with a pool in the complex and MUST be walking distance to the ocean"... and we got that in Playa Bejuco, Costa Rica.
As anyone who has seen the sun set over the Pacific, it is a nightly masterpiece from God...we bogey board from 4pm til the sun sets around 5:30pm....I know strangely early from a Northern's perspective as we think of hot summer weather with the sun setitng at 8-9pm...Nope here it is pitch black by 6pm...365 days of the year... 12hrs day/ 12hr night).
Anyways I wanted to share a piece of the masterpiece with you...a 10minute video of the sun setting in all its glory... (you can jump forward in the video, unless you stop, grab a drink and visualize yourself there of course - to see the wonderful colours).
PS...I am posting this video to SHARE with you only - an escape to the tropics.. that is my husband voice at the beginning...not much talking thru it
