Road Trip...

We live just under a mile from the beach, straight down our street. We could walk there but the sidewalk is hit and miss. Sometimes the cars miss it and sometimes they don’t. So we used the “little blue freedom”.
I might mention things that we have given up to be here. But don’t you think the trade in was worth it?

This is the view to the left.

Straight ahead.

And what we see when we look right.
I have circled the huge condo we stayed in the last time we ventured into this gorgeous country. It was a delicious treat, but really, you’re not in Costa Rica when you are there. You are in a gorgeous condo. I like being in Costa Rica.

Aiden studying the rainforest around us.

This is what we bring to the beach now. "Pure Life". No more hauling tons of toys and junk to the ocean. We brought these, 2 cups and 2 spoons. It's been a benefit to see the kid's imaginations grow more when they have less. Interesting how that works.

I agree....less IS more. I have been trying to get myself to that point, I think it will always be a work in progress.
Great pictures.

Don't forget the diluted Agua Oxigenado (or how every they write Hydrogen Perioxide) for the ears if the kids swim. The water is pretty but not that clean.

Bacterial soap, too!
But you probably know that.
