I’ve been talking about my 50th birthday trip since I was…..um, around 46?
We’ve visited Costa Rica twice before and I knew it was where I wanted to return to for the big 5 0.
We started the trip details back in January along with 3 other couples.
We rented a fabulous house on the beach in Tamarindo; the house had all the creature comforts….ya know, many bedrooms, a gorgeous pool/spa, gourmet kitchen, a chef and housekeeper, a gym and golf carts for us to tool around town in.
Unbeknownst to me, my friends brought along lovely decorations and more presents than I deserve!
We even had our own custom made Yeti’s for the trip!
We all enjoyed playing in the pool…..just give us a few beers and balls and we’re kiddos again.
We had an excursion one day that included a beautiful Costa Rican lunch and then a boat ride along a river where we saw many crocodiles, howler monkeys and lots of lovely birds. Also, we stopped and saw this gorgeous waterfall. FYI: The Coach and I declared this was the most perfect meal…and it was cooked in an outdoor kitchen/grill.
My sweet friends arranged for a birthday dinner one evening prepared by a local Chef; it was
They made a lot of these really cute caption cards for us to play with all week.
And they even created these lovely menu cards for my birthday dinner.
Please note, the date is incorrect because we had to move UP the special dinner because of IRMA!
