What happens in Costa Rica stays in Costa Rica and unfortunately, this pool stayed at our hotel when we came home. However, the memories of a wonderful adventure came back with us. The pink bricks around the pool contrasted beautifully with the blue water while the trees provided shade from the bright sun. In another pool, we stood cooling off while sipping a drink. Nice work if you can get it. We did and it was.

It was an excellent visit but like all good things, it came to an end and I’m driving home today. It’s good to get away and it’s good to go home and thankfully I have people I love at both ends of the trip. Thanks for sticking with me while I was gone. I’ll have some doors for tomorrow and be back visiting.

    (And we’ll just sip this lovely scene with our eyes.)

  4. You can really relax there! Have a save trip home, Janet!

    When I first saw the photo in my inbox, I only saw the very top of the umbrella. I thought it was going to be a statue of a jungle god.

    Look lovely. Glad that you got away and home safe. Can’t wait to just get away somewhere, but in the meantime, I’m enjoying reading about trips that others are making. Thanks for sharing 😊

    • The Costa Rica trip was wonderful and my trip to California, while not quite the same, was a great break. I enjoy road trips, although driving in LA traffic isn’t my favorite thing. I’m happy you enjoyed both my trips and if you stick around, you’ll see more because I do love to travel.
