Leaving Tamarindo And Flying Home

Tamarindo Beach 4

Time to leave beautiful Costa Rica and return to the reality of St. Louis (is that what it is?). We have a connection in Miami and will be home late tonight. Our transportation should be more comfortable than the ultralight aircraft flying over Playa Langosta, shown below.

The older couple above, in beautiful sunset light, is a good farewell image. However, I guarantee you that Carolyn would never dress like that and street photographers like me don't wear red. I've still got lots of Costa Rica pictures on the hard drive and will run with that until I get more material at home.

We leave you - and here - with a shot of moonrise over Playa Langosta Saturday night. Many additional pictures from Costa Rica on the Flickr set here.

Our sincere thanks once again to Dave Selden of Tamarindo Daily Photo and Julie Pace of Scottsdale Daily Photo for the chance to rent their gorgeous beachfront condo. Go to Dave's blog you can find out how you can stay here, too.

Glad that you had a good time again this year.

That ultra light is a gyrocopter that gives scenic flights from the Tamarindo airport. My son took it. I went to check it out to see if it was safe. The guy who operated it was named Guido, but when I met him I learned that he is a German who took meticulous care of his well maintained machinery.

I asked him how a German got a name like Guido. His reply: "My mother really liked Italians."
