I headed back to the main pavilion again on my second night to watch another Costa Rican sunset on the Osa Peninsula. With no rain this evening, I was not alone. Most of the guests of El Remanso Lodge were there with either a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee or celebratory cocktails. We all watched to see if the sun would set perfectly in the middle of a clearing in the rain forest on the Pacific Ocean as expected. It didn’t.
Clouds blocked the view, but it hardly took away from the beauty of the moment. The once blue water, turned color and reflected a pinkish-red hue. It was spectacular, and a great way to close my most recent adventure to Costa Rica.
I waited and had a second cup of coffee. The breeze picked up and the sounds of the jungle intensified. I stayed until the last bit of color disappeared. Everyone else cleared out early, I am never sure where people go in such a hurry. The afterglow often proves more magical than the sunset itself.
Happy Sunset Sunday.
Stay adventurous, Craig
I wanted to include a Costa Rican sunset, my sunset from Tamarindo in my 2014 Sunset Sunday – Chasing the Sunset. Since I used an early digital camera (circa 2002), it might not have printed properly (I received a warning). I chose another beauty (and favorite) for November, my sunset from San Blas. Take a look at both. Also, my recent trip to Costa Rica was part of the “Gift of Happiness” tour I participated in while working with the Costa Rica Tourism Board. As always, my opinions and travel photography are my own.
