Our guests from Calgary, Canada, arrived on Monday and spent 4 nights with us. It was so nice to get to know them. Another lovely couple! They were very keen birdwatchers, so it awesome that we could spy a Quetzal on the property. We didn't get to see it very well (only in flight), but it was still thrilling. Here's what they wrote in our guestbook... so nice!:
Dear Anne, Kevin and Frankie,
After getting to the Parque Nacíonal Los Quezales for hiking today, we were mostly just excited to return to your land, where we had seen and identified over a dozen species of birds the day before. Driving up to the base of Hush Valley, two Cattle Egrets posed bridge-side for us, which by this point in our stay has become almost expected. The natural beauty of Hush Valley will be missed dearly, especially as we return to the bitter chill of Canadian winter.
Thank you for the care, commitment and whole-hearted dedication you put into both your business and community – we felt very looked after during our stay here and our experience was enriched by the personal connection and all of the efforts you put into showing us your community. We are especially grateful for the trip into San Marcos and the welcome onto your farm, as well as the knowledge you shared about Costa Rican society and culture, and the experiences that brought you both here.
Thank you again, we will be sure to pass along word of this lovely place.
Take good care and keep up the tremendous efforts!
Gabriel and Sara
P.S. Kevin – thanks for running full spedd to get us for the Quetzal – we really appreciate it!
P.S.S. The dictionary and wildlife guides have been so helpful, and the bread and eggs delicious!
