What a week!! My daughter, Phoenix, and her friend, Kaila, were here for a fabulous visit. They landed last Sunday and we kept busy. On Monday, Kevin and Martin drained the pond and caught our first batch of fish of the season! Woot! Then Kevin used his new weighing station...
And, I got to use our cleaning station for the first time, too... and it works perfectly!
After getting our chores done, I took Phoenix and Kaila to Santa Maria to meet our dear friends, Cindy and Larry. We had a beverage and enjoyed exchanging stories. Phoenix hadn't met them on her other two visits to Costa Rica, so they really wanted to meet her this time around.
Then, on Tuesday, the girls and I drove down to a lovely little organic market and from there we drove down to the Pacific coast to hang out on Dominicalito beach for the rest of the day. It was almost deserted... we pretty much had the beach to ourselves.
On Wednesday, the girls went horseback riding for a couple of hours with our neighbour, Abel. They had great fun. On Thursday morning, Phoenix and Kaila treated me to an amazing photoshoot... they pampered me and made me feel like a super model. It was so much fun. Then later in the afternoon, we went to visit our friends, Rafa and Minor, to see their gorgeous Japanese garden.
Friday came around way too fast for my liking, but all good things come to an end. I drove the girls back to the airport.
In the meantime, Kevin was busy working on the farm while we girls were galavanting. He created a metal guard for the lawnmower so that stones and rocks don't get spit out and hit us in the chins. Another clever invention...
