The good and the bad news...

September 11, 2020

#FelizFriday!

So do you want the good or bad news first??? 

Ok, let's start with the good news...
If you're a resident of the EU, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China or certain US states (ME, VT, NH, CT, MA, NY, NJ, MD, VA, PA, CO, or Washington DC), you can nowtravel to Costa Rica.

And the bad news?
If you're a resident of the state of Georgia like me, or any of the other 40 US states, Costa Rica's borders are still closed for us.

Yep, that's right, almost 6 months later and I still can't return back to Costa Rica. 😭😭😭 And almost six months in, I now truly can empathize with how much you miss Pura Vidadise when you're not there.

So I'm sending you a big Pura Vida hug and a whole lot of Lowcountry magic...because the silver lining of being stuck in Savannah has given me the opportunity to...

 

Chase a dreamy sunset at the beach,

Can you think of a better way to end the day than with watching sunset at the beach??? Especially when the sky turns pastel?!?! Ok, you may not be able to get to the beach tonight to watch sunset, but you can bring home this sunset photo print...and that's pretty darn close!

Wake up early to watch the full moon set over the marsh during sunrise,

Good night moon! 😍🌝🌅 It definitely is worth waking up before sunrise when you get to see this beautiful sight, the full moon glowing pink as it sets over the marsh in Savannah, GA. "Full Moon Marsh" photo by Kristen M. Brown of Samba to the Sea for The Sunset Shop.

Catch a lighthouse glowing during golden hour,

She's that beacon, the first thing you see as you cross over the bridge to Tybee Island. And she's the last thing on Tybee you say goodbye to once you're headed home from your summer beach vacation. She evokes all those feelings of Lowcountry coastal living. She is the petite Cockspur Lighthouse. ⠀ Cockspur Lighthouse during golden hour on Tybee Island, GA. "Cockspur" photographed by Kristen M.

P.S...
9/11, may we never forget. Rest in power Wes.
