New Address


and a new name.  See you around!

An Unexpected Hiatus

I have been busier than usual.  We came back from Costa Rica, Lent started, the boys have been busy with music and sports, and so on.

I was going to post another installment of our trip, but I'm out of storage space for pictures on my blog.  Now I need to decide if I should buy storage space for a "free" blog, or if I should move to another blogging program or something else.  I like my blog because there's a lot of memories here, but I'm also kind of cheap.

What to do, what to do.

Hiking in Tropical Rainforest

We may not have known precisely where we were going,
 but we had a good time hiking there.

 Even tired, hungry boys.

When the end is this view, it's easy to keep on going.

The Second Day

we flew to Drake Bay, to stay at Punta Marenco.
 Wiz is ready for an adventure.
 No one thought Game Boy was weird for drinking coffee at the airport.  (Actually, we live in the PNW.   I think everyone starts drinking coffee in middle school.)
 We flew Nature Air.  All of the airplanes have fabulous paint jobs.
 The view from our cabina.  The Pacific Ocean looks different compared to off the coast of Washington.
 Two, sharp-toothed buzzards sitting in a dead tree were also spotted from our cabin porch.  We didn't do too much the first day except go down to the beach and play in the waves and find seashells.
One of the nice things about the tropics is day and night lengths are pretty uniform.  The sun came up at 6 ish and went down at 6 ish.  It was nice to see a sunset (we don't see that many this time of year due to inversions) when we weren't too tired to enjoy them.

And that is our second day in Costa Rica.
