Costa Rica Getaway

We arrived at sunset at our house and this is the view we
were greeted with. Casa Vista Magnifica was much more
amazing than any of us imagined.
85 degrees and no humidity in Potrero, Costa Rica.
Back home...32 degrees and the threat of snow!
Lenisa, Cara, and Phillip sit down to enjoy a wonderfully
scrumptious breakfast as Rosita puts the finishing touches
on a typical Costa Rican breakfast. Typical = Delicious!

Lenisa on Sugar Beach

The sand here was volcanic. Very dark but fine and soft.

Chris & Lenisa on Sugar Beach.

Birthday Party for Kim and was just before the Sugar Bowl.
Rosita lighting the candles on Kim's cake.

Zip Liners about to head out!

Phillip & Kim just before the candles were blown out!

Lenisa, Adrienne, Kim, & Cara get ready for the Hogs!

Here we are at a beach in Playa Flamingo.

Enjoying a drink at a bar in Tamarindo.

Sailing on the Pacific!

All smiles just before we go snorkling.

The 7 of us on our sail boat. It was a great time!

Back at the house enjoying a sun set next to the pool.

Our last night in Costa Rica.

The foyer of the house was awesome. It was a water
entrance with stepping stones that lead four different
directions. One to the front door, one to a bedroom, one
to the upstairs, and one to the open air living room & kitchen.

The girls in front of the Christmas lights!

Bismark & Rosita lived at the house with us. They were
amazing. Rosita cooked every meal for us and it beat
any restaurant we ate at. They were both really nice and
funny. I hope we get to go back to this place someday soon!
One thing we won't miss...the grass hoppers. They were about
7 inches long and flew around the place. When they would fly at
night we mistakenly thought they were bats. They were HUGE!
