On the Beach

We took an actual vacation and headed to a favorite peaceful spot along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica for a week. We unplugged, relaxed, soaked up the warm sunshine, and even did a little surfing. These were beginner-sized waves, mind you, so don’t picture any north shore curls. The trick and challenge when you’re 50+ is doing a quick pop-up from lying down and paddling ferociously to bouncing up onto your feet, well-balanced of course. Frankly, we didn’t exactly “bounce” or “pop” to our feet like those spry, young, “Tico” beach boys, but we got up and rode a lot of waves, and it was fun.

We’re now in Amsterdam, on our way to East Africa to lead our annual Photo Safari in Kenya & Tanzania. We’re first going to make a detour and visit Rwanda to go trekking and see mountain gorillas. We’re very excited. — Jack & Rikki
