Coast to coast in Costa Rica along the golden sand beaches lined with palm trees

A while back, I went coast to coast in Costa Rica on a fabulous vacation with my fantastic cousin. She visited me in Ecuador and in Honduras (3 times!), and she initiated the planning of this outstanding Costa Rica trip. I’ve also just coaxed her into a visit to Scotland! That’s what brought up all these fun memories of trips past.

From Women Who Live on Rocks

I posted this piece on Women Who Live on Rocks last year, and it recently popped up again to make me smile. Island life is full of quirks, giving road directions is merely one tiny example of the fun you can have trying to make sense of living on a small rock in the sea.

There is always something that can bring you back to a moment in time; something that triggers a memory and puts you far from where you are currently. It might be a smell or a certain taste, but for many people it’s music.

The first weekend of the 8th Annual Golden Buoy Competition fundraising was a fabulous success! Entertaining costumes, a few three-legged stumbles, and lots of cheering up and down the street in West End left everyone feeling elated. While the total amount raised has yet to be announced, I can personally vouch for the impressive crowd of three-legged ambitious drinkers so I’m sure the end result will be fantastic.

What is “Semana Santa” anyway?

No, friends, it has nothing to do with Santa Claus. In most of Latin America, the end of Holy Week, or Easter Week, is a festival time. Most countries offer national holidays for at least Good Friday, if not other days as well. Most schools are closed and families take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate together.
