Mom and Dad’s Suitcase

(Matapalo, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) If only it was all fun and games. We spent the entire day yesterday doing what can only be described as work. Tons of research, calling, and ordering. Oceanna’s to-do list must be conquered every once in a while. The one thing that sets it apart from proper work though, […]

Dreams and Italian in Pavones

(Pavones, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) Catching back up with Kancer on land today he gave us a tour of the piece of property he bought with a friend in Pavones. The property was beautiful and laden with delicious fruit trees. And although I thought they were just a good Mitch Hedburg joke, we sampled some […]

Hodgepodge Goodness

(Pavones, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) Today was a real hodgepodge of events. And I say that in the best possible way. We finally set eyes on the sea turtle that frequents Land and Sea marina for bananas. A friendly, fruit-munching, little (big) guy. Then we ventured down to Golfito’s Duty Free zone. A real hot […]

They Gone

(Golfito, Costa Rica) They all left this morning. Every one of them. Stu and her opinions, Bunz and his giggle, Frankie and her hand gestures, and Babe and that accent. What am I supposed to do now? Nothing. Nothing but sulk around and deal with another onset of mild depression. The only thing that slightly […]

Surf and Turf

(Golfito, Costa Rica) I’m pretty sure the word “poser” died with Avril Lavigne sometime circa 2003. Well today we brought it back, and we brought it back with style! Surf posers at their finest. I wouldn’t say any of us necessarily caught a proper wave – unless you count Frankie body surfing into the beach […]

Three Point Birthday

(Matapalo, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) As far as birthday’s go, I’d say Gregory had himself a pretty decent one. Sails were flown. Fish were caught. Dolphins were seen. Waves were rode. And Skor Cake was consumed. Deee-cent. The name of the game today was to sail, fish, and surf (successfully) all in one day. We […]

Paddle Board Tricks and Gulfo Dulce Botanics

(Casa Orquideas, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) You’ve heard the age-old question, if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one thing, what would it be? Well I would like to pose a new question. If you were stuck on a paddle board with two other people, who would they be? My […]

Welcome to the Rain Forest

(Casa Orquideas, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) Well it may be the tail end of the rainy season, it’s definitely still the rainy season. To properly introduce our Canadian visitors to Costa Rica we took them out for some local cuisine, got them sweating in the hot hot sun, and then set sail to catch the […]

Then There Were Three

(Golfito, Costa Rica) I woke this morning with the fever of an 8-year-old on Christmas. Sarah and Melissa were arriving today and I couldn’t, just couldn’t, be more excited. I leapt out of bed around 6 am and proceeded to complete my remaining jobs. By 7:01 I was sitting counting the hours. So many hours. […]

A Flying Crustacean

(Casa Orquideas, Gulfo Dulce, Costa Rica) Well, the lobster trap didn’t necessarily work, but it didn’t not work either. This morning when we pulled it up we were sad to find it devoid of lobster, but excited to find three crabs! Little bitty blue crabs. Not much for eating. Though they did lend a certain […]
