Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful, green, lush, and full of friendly people. We have enjoyed walking around the various towns (Jaco, Quepos), meeting “ticos” (locals), and seeing the wildlife. It has been a fun adventure. We are thrilled we could share it with Matt’s mom, Monica.
Mother’s Day – 13 May 2018
We met her at the Croc’s Casino and Beach Resort and enjoyed some chat time before we headed to Poseidon Restaurant. Matt and I had made reservations the day before so we were all set to enjoy our Sunday brunch.
Costa Rica celebrates Mother’s day in August. As a result the place wasn’t terribly crowded. It’s a cute little place with the seating and bar inside and the kitchen outside. Very tasty food! We ordered a chicken Caesar salad, Tropical salad and eggs Benedict with mimosas of course.
The day Monica left, we enjoyed a nice lunch by the pool along with some frothy drinks. I had a Miami Vice, have you heard of that before? It is 1/2 strawberry margarita and 1/2 pina coloda. Perfect mix.
Matt and I found this beautiful bowl made out of Brazilian wood that has become our fruit bowl on the boat. Important to realize, I bought this in Costa Rica and they were bragging about it being Brazilian wood.
They have several of these stores around town which just crack me up – Fruity Monkey Poop. Obviously, it is a cafe that sells tourist items.
I forgot to post this photo during one of our tours. They have wonderful art like this all around Costa Rica. This is a beautiful bus stop.
In Costa Rica they make fences using cut down trees. After awhile, the trees start to grow again. The horses and cows eat from the tree fence while being confined to the pasture. I took these photos from a moving van on the highway, can you tell?
We had many lovely sunsets while anchored at Bahia Herradura. The top image is the sunset and the bottom is the view of the Los Suenos Marina at night.
Coming up Next
Sugar Shack was struck by lightning while we were celebrating Mother’s Day with Monica. We will be working on repairs for the next several months. With this in mind, we will not be posting about the incident until it is 100% resolved and behind us. Thank you for being patient.
