Often I review some of my old photos and journals when reminded of an adventure. This Thanksgiving weekend, thankful for all my travels, I decided to look back to the adventure that changed the course of my future. An adventure where I actually spent a Thanksgiving searching for a slice of Turkey to go with my beans and rice. This weekend I looked back to the first leg of my travel sabbatical – Costa Rica.
Adventures in Costa Rica
Now six years later, I am still so thankful for that trip. Perhaps even more thankful each day as those carefree steps taken on the soft sands of Costa Rica led me down a different path. I am thankful for becoming, ‘Pura Vida’, and thankful for the stepping stone that enabled Stay Adventurous.
I am also thankful for the many sunsets I watched in Costa Rica. It became part of my daily routine. I’ll never forget the majestic magenta and robust reds of the sunsets in Tamarindo from the beach-front bars. I’ll always remember the evenings, sitting on the sand of Santa Teresa, with new-found friends taking in a few beers and discussing the day’s waves after a quality surf session – all so beautiful, in so many ways.
During one of those evenings, when starting a fire on the beach in Santa Teresa, a few horses wandered down close to the ocean’s edge and as they passed, I snapped this photo. Apparently, they too wanted to enjoy the Sunset. I don’t blame them. It is always a magical moment.
Happy Sunset Sunday.
Stay adventurous, Craig
