There has been some very nice weather here lately in Costa Rica’s Southern Zone giving opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, the views and to just chillax by the pool. Even Wylder, Rusty and Olivia take time for some sunbathing in the morning. As we are now in the rainy season, mornings are not to waste as many afternoons and/or evenings are rainy.
We all know that for ultimate chillaxation, a good, cold beer goes a long way. However, Costa Rica is in its beer infancy, so to speak, with Imperial, Pilsen and several other national brews dominating the store shelves. Craft beers and brewpubs have recently started making their way onto the scene, but it’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the U.S. So, I have got my butt in gear and started to make my own brew again.
This first batch should be ready to try around Labor Day, just in time for some more chillaxing by the pool!
Some comfortable cushions are always nice to have when you want to sit on the edge of the pool and get your feet wet! So, Ellen decided she would make her own with some outdoor fabric she brought in from the States.
As you know, we grow our own bananas on our property and we recently found this oddity. A set of conjoined bananas…not sure if they were identical twins though. This was a first for us!
