I love this photo. The sun is crawling up the Mountain side, the sky is frosted with a blush of colors and the silhouettes add some interesting magic as well.
Sunrise in Costa Rica is a soul replenishing experience.
But the beauty of sunrise in Dominical is not just visual. If you were watching this awakening glow in person you'd feel the caress of the moist morning air and hear a chorus of birds among the rustle of jungle leaves.
Hmmm.. The human sense of hearing is so questionable. It can be so pleasurable sometimes. I enjoy the ruffle of wings as a bird nestles in a near by tree. The rumbling, earthy growl of the howler monkey greeting the day. The song of the birds is the only alarm clock I'll ever need on vacation.
The visual beauty of this Casa is undeniable. In fact, this breath taking vista might be the best we've ever experienced. So why did we leave disgruntled and a week early? I think the title of this post says it all. It was my well earned nickname for this lovely rental.
But I will say this, we kept coming back up the mountain anyway. Casa Construction was a hop, skip and a frog jump from Jolly Rodgers Pirate Bar. You couldn't keep us away from the best burgers in Dominical! And good pizza too. Plus, big strong drinks to keep you jolly. Except through construction noise at 6 am.
My meager mystery bird photo this week. I hope I've earned a simple silhouette!
At sunset the construction ended. I aimed my camera towards the setting sun and breathed a sigh of relief.
But at 6:00 am the workers staying on the lot next door expelled a big yawn, stretched, stepped out of their shack and climbed into a bulldozer! And the construction was happening all over the hillside. So motorcycles and trucks full of gravel were lined up like a parade at dawn The explosion of sound fell in the negative sound spectrum. In other words. It sucked!
Sunset didn't suck.
