January has kept us on our toes! It is traditionally one of the nice weather months, and it has been, yet the rain is still coming. We typically have a short sprinkle at least once a day. It isnt cold though, and though the sky may darken, it usually results in a rainbow.
We have had rainbows every afternoon for the past week!
We have had several guests in the past month and are expecting more this weekend. We have had some great suggestions about better signage, especially because the road we normally guide people to is closed for repair. We made some signs to place at intervals along the roads that lead to the elusive Hush Valley Lodge. On the US, blue and white road signs indicate services are ahead such as gas, food, and hotels. Though we aren't a hotel necessarily, we like that the blue and white are also very Costa Rican colors. You'll find many older structures use this combination of colors.
We also spent a few weeks with Peter, Jo, Molly and Gary. Plans were decided and arrangements made- all leading to the big news. They have broken ground on Peter and Jo's casita!
It will be located where the old wood shed was on the hill side, with an incredible view of the rock garden and river.
This casita is a steel frame, with framed rooms that fold out from the center to create a 600 square foot casita. Its difficult to describe, but we will keep you updated weekly via our blog, and facebook!
We estimate the casita will be complete by the end of March. Then, Hush Valley will have another lovely, yet still private casita for our guests to choose from. Exciting!
