I’m not a sun worshiper, in fact I walked along the beach of Tamarindo, Costa Rica with a parasol. The sun drains me in the heat of the day and I don’t want to bake in the sun. I prefer walking along the beach in the late afternoon and especially at sunset.

I bought my sundress in Canada but it was perfect for the beach and walking around town.

Sipping fresh coconut juice with a straw is refreshing and healthy! I had one every morning, freshly picked from a coconut tree.  The variety of exotic fruits and tropical veggies makes Costa Rica a paradise for vegans!!

I love walking and taking in the sights. Chatting with locals and other tourists is interesting and enjoyable.

Tamarindo has luxurious shopping areas and lovely things to buy. There are open air restaurants with live bands playing. I was amazed how much it has changed since the last time I was here.

        It’s what I have always had in my heart ever since I was a child. When you understand and open your eyes to the cycle of life and death which we all are apart of, you realise you have to enjoy yourself and live with values of such as non violences to all beings and also if someone in your life is upsetting you remove that person if the person continues to upset you. Look forward to reading your blog 😉

    What a fantastic trip, beautiful pictures and beautiful you are with your summer dress is very nice. Your beautiful skin should be protected from the sun, we must not attack our body. You look fantastic.

      Thank you, Jeannie!
      It was a good time, I’m glad our spring is finally here in Ontario and we’re enjoying warm, sunny days again after a long cold winter.

    So jealous of your toes in the sand : )

    Looks like you’re having a great time.

      Thanks for stopping by, Suzanne!

      No sandy beach nearby, but at least the spring has arrived and we’ll go to a beach in the summer about an hour and a half drive from where we live. Where is your closest beach?

      Have a fabulous week!!
      ❤ carmen
