The Gals Acronym for COSTA RICA

Can you imagine generous lashings,
Of dedicated friendship... amidst
Surf, sand and sun
Tangled delightfully... with

wicked Marguerita and....
Roasted prawns,

 In a certain paradise... that
Colludes, to leave us stunned
And dazed, with the joy of it all!

Costa Rica - top 10 girlfriend getaway!

Costa Rica - top 10 girlfriend getaway!
Lynnie, Smither, McT,  & Helicopter hiking the Alberta Rockies.
Costa Rica has been named one of the top ten girlfriend getaways.  
Look out Cost Rica, and get ready 'cause the Lonely Hearts Club is on its way.  We are high school girlfriends with a history of forty years of friendship behind us.   Over the past 10 years we have spent a summer weekend together; hiking in the Canadian rockies, kayaking off Salt Spring island, cycling the Kettle Valley railway and relaxing at a cabin on Lake Okanagan.  This year we are Costa Rica bound; staying at Villas Las Ventanas - where they promise that paradise is not a myth - it's a destination.
Stay tuned, we'll post pictures, reflections and stories of our hijinks.

“Don't grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach.” -- Michelle Hel,

I know of no place better to act like a kid than on a beach, best try the long stretches of sand of Costa Rica's warm pacific shores. 
Just ask Richard and Peter, two retired pilots who were seen flying a remote controlled airplane on Playa Junquillal this week. Peter found the joy of living in Costa Rica years ago and spends most of his time in the cooler climate of the central valley. He also enjoys time spent surfing and flying his creations on coastal beaches. Peter's friend Richard was introduced to villas las ventanas thru condo owners Gerhardt and Kathy, a bermudian couple who always make time to in their busy schedule to visit us. 

Peter's enthusiasm for remote controlled airplanes prompted him to lovingly re-created a scale model of the de Havilland Hornet. Here's the link to watch the historic flight.  Flight Video
