Night in San Jose (two images) – We stayed our first night in the historic Gran Hotel Costa Rica in San Jose. This was our view from the dining room open balcony. The first image shows the colorful lights of the nightlife and the valley of lights behind. The second image is of the Teatro Nacional, a gorgeous building, particularly the inside! But that’s for a different post. 😉
Well, it finally happened … I reached my upload limit here on wordpress.com and thus, couldn’t upload any pictures yesterday! So my usual “Macro Monday” picture has turned into a “Macro Tuesday” one. Yes, I purchased the 10 gig upgrade. So you’ll see me around here for just a bit longer! 😉
This photograph was taken in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.
Ah, the splendid sunsets, trips to the coast, boats in the water, the gentle sway of the palm trees, that says Summer Lovin’ to me!

Well, I finally did it, I missed an entire week of posting. Somehow Week 28 disappeared in my world – as we were on a fun-filled vacation in Costa Rica. But now I’m trying to get back on track. So let’s pick up and forget last week. Here is your 29th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?
What Is It?!? Week 29/52
What Was That?!? Week 27/52
Tracey guessed it immediately, “So this weeks pic … fireworks?” Dang. Ding ding ding! Yep, fireworks, taken as I was zooming in and out. Great guess! “Yay! But I have to admit, on July 4th I got a lot of photos like this, so this was kid of easy for me.”
Maybe this week’s will be just a tad harder? 😀
My family took a trip/tour of Costa Rica with 28 other people. By the end of the trip we were all good friends. I even got a new “bestie!” Here is a sampling of our first trek around the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. This was also our first taste of what happens in a rainforest: yes, it rains! I wrapped my beloved Canon 5D Mark II in a Target bag (made a hole in the bottom for the lens and somehow made a toga for the camera). I called this my “redneck camera cover.” It worked somewhat, but a later trip showed it certainly wasn’t airtight. (no worries, all is good!) I was awed by the beauty a volcano thrusts forth, emerging from the Earth and embracing the land.
