Where is your favorite place on earth?


We have been suffering through a never ending season of Winter here in Minnesota.  And last night I was feeling nostalgic for the beaches of Dominical, Costa Rica. I thought about how there is no place I would rather get out of bed today than Dominical. I would wake up to the loud and exotic sound of Howler Monkeys. Then head down to the beach for a heavenly walk. Afterwards, I'd have breakfast at Tortilla Flats. Yum. Then relax.  For awhile.  And after lunch maybe do some boogie boarding.  So in honor of Earth Day I'm sharing my favorite spot on earth.  Sigh.


I think these photos really portray the joy I feel in being there.  The frolicking dogs are so happy to be alive.  I felt like I was at one with them when I snapped these photos.  I felt the same joy in my heart.


The morning Sun slowly warmed the earth and cast beautiful shadows.


Just another day in paradise. Happy Earth Day!  Here are some things to consider today...

(at participating locations)

1)  Caribou Coffee is offering free coffee when you bring in your own mug. Plus, when you "like" Caribou on facebook they will plant a tree in Central America.  I might have to break my facebook fast for this one.  

2) Free totes with eco goodies and coupons at Target.

3) Free seeds at Pottery Barn Kids.

4)  Free entrances to our National Parks today!

5) Text "RELEAF" to 273283 and Michaels craft stores will make a donation to plant a tree on your behalf.

I love Earth Day! We're stuck at home (twins are sick) but we did get to enjoy a festival this weekend.

Pretty pics!

I haven't been to nearly the exciting places that you have been, so for now, my most favorite place is Kauai

I really like the look of your "favorite" place.Anywhere with wide open spaces beside the beach makes me happy. Of course, I'm even happier if I can be out on the ocean in my kayak! At present the kayak is in the shed and I can't touch it - I've torn something in a shoulder and I can't use that arm. Sheer frustration :-(

I have got to start reading your posts on the day they come out. Look what I missed by being tardy! Rats. I have so many favorite places (and wish I had more...I'd love to go to Costa Rica for instance!)

That is one fabulous place and you took some great photos of it. I have two favorite places. The beautiful island of Kauai and the amazing Sedona, Arizona.
