These are pictures in my files that conjure up the meaning of Pura Vida for me. Enjoy.
Chris and me; Jamaica 2011
Chris, Tristan, and Kara and Playa Manuel Antonio
Kara and I at the Jolly Roger
Kara at the Creativa garden, eating a guayava from one of the trees on campus
The view from our front porch on a clear, sunny day
Kara was selected to release a newly-hatched butterfly into one of the climate-regulated gardens. Monteverde Butterfly Garden
Kara spends hours outside in her hut. Good way to get sunshine.
The kids and I on the beach at San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
Spending more time outside at Selvatura Park.
Almost all of the produce, bread, and dairy that we consume is locally made.
Sometimes we have to interrupt dinner for these “sunset alerts”.
Kara, her friend, and Tristan admiring the forest
The waterfall at Hidden Valley Trail. Pictures don’t do it justice. The music of the waterfall is also beautiful!
Tristan climbing inside a strangler fig at Hidden Valley Trail.
Kara and her friend, Tati, hanging out at the Desfile de Faroles
Kara and the Creativa banner for the Costa Rican Independence Day Parade
A hike in the cloud forest with friends…..Pura Vida!
