We have a winner!

Wanda over at won the photo cards! She picked tie #6. The top blue tie with small circles and squares. (my husband will never wear that one again!) Thanks to anyone who helped promote my contest. I didn't get a lot of guesses. But Wanda chimed in pretty quickly with the right pick. She's pretty darn smart to pick the top tie! I thought it would be fun to share some memories about the winning photos. The first photo was taken in Costa Rica's cloud forest. We were contemplating a soggy hike over Selvetura's hanging bridges. But the chill and constant drizzle prevented us from being adventurous. But we did snap this photo right outside the office! This photo could have been taken anywhere. But it was snapped on a dewy morning at Hacienda Baru.

A beautiful and deserted beach walk at Hacienda Baru.

Driftwood on the beach. Again at Hacienda Baru.

Pacific Edge. A view to remember near Dominical, Costa Rica.

The cloud forest.

Mystery fruit at Eco Iris. Actually, it's Arco Iris. But that's my nickname for the Eco friendly lodge.

And lastly we spent some time on the aqua blue waters near Dominical. I hope you enjoy your cards Wanda!

P.S. Here's my illustrated recipe link for those who didn't catch it last time.
