Welcome Back to Costa Rica Sunsets || #FelizFriday 5/12/17

I cried tears of happiness and giggled like a little kid last Saturday morning. After a month dry docked in the US with no surfing, it was heavenly to be back in the ocean dancing with waves Saturday morning. The waves rolled in all morning, the ocean was a gorgeous shade of deep turquoise, and the water temperature was just perfect. Thank you Mother Nature for your beautiful gift - - it was just what I needed to reconnect and shake off all that dust from the dry land.

BUT, it's not all palm trees and pretty waves in Pura Vidadise since I've been back... I left Costa Rica dry season in April and came back to full on rainy season in May -- minus the rainy season sunsets! Even though the sky has been all gray at sunset 5 out of 7 days this past week, I must admit this past week I loved going back into my sunset photo archives. So many stunners to pick from -- and that's not too bad of a dilemma to have! What do you think?!

Finally, after five days of playing hide and go seek, the sunset certainly came out to play the past two nights!!! 🏄‍♀️🌅🌊

AND just in case these knockout sunset photos aren't enough eye candy, check out a 'lil behind the scenes sunset video - - almost as good as being on the beach with Gidget and I to watch the sunset 😘



Now go on and sit back, relax, and fall back into your day dream with some sunset magic from Cinco de Mayo last Friday night... . 

 

Pura Vida,
