Weekly Wednesday Trip

Today, on our weekly 'family' trip, we went to a park and country club to enjoy the pool in the mountains about 20 minutes from here. The mountains here are different than the others I have been to in Costa Rica in that it looked like Oregon. There were pine trees everywhere, with nice little pastures (I saw dairy heifers!). We started off at a park with some trails, and a lot of areas to eat lunch. It continues to amaze me what will grow in Costa Rica. There were calla lillies growing naturally all over the place, as well as impatients and many other tropical plants. It was cold on the mountain today due to a cold front, probably 65 degrees. As a result, today was another day of drizzle without any clouds. I can't figure it out.

We started off the day at my host sister's dad's hardware store. They also have 'árboles de navidad' or Christmas trees. They look slightly different, but they still get you excited for Christmas.

Chapel at the country club. They didn't have golf, but it was more oriented to entertain families.

Pura Vida,
