I know this is very late but here’s a little photo diary from my trip to Costa Rica in September
No this was not a surf trip. I can do that any day I want in San Diego. There is so much more to life and so much more to see when traveling. As much as I love the ocean, and although we did spend a great amount of time on the beaches and in the sea, there is also so much land and wildlife waiting to be seen. This trip was about exploring, learning, growing…and finally, going home and appreciating where I live more than ever.
This last photo was taken by my friend Tobi is one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to meet this beautiful soul in Puerto Rico some years back and stay in touch. She appreciates nature more than most people I know and is a true joy breath of fresh air to be around. We awoke to these beautiful Macaws playing around in our back yard each morning in Bahia Drake.
We camped in open Tipis on a mountainside near Dominical, hiked for miles in the jungle of La Sirena in Corcovado, slept on buses, trusted the locals with our lives on some very questionable boat rides (where we stayed in Bahia Drake is only accessible by an hour and a half boat ride), walked across a jenky suspension bridge (and decided it was a good idea to shoot some photos for Tobi’s shop, Fox House on it), got way too close for comfort to some crocodiles, watched in awe as whales breached only a few feet from our small boat, and met some truly amazing people. PURA VIDA.
More travel photo diaries from Sequoia, San Onofre, Big Sur, and San Francisco coming soon.
