In addition to travel being a big passion for my father and I, we both love spending time on the water so on day 6 in Costa Rica, we went on a fun sunset cruise. The highlight of the trip was a stop at a tiny island where we did some swimming, sunning and snorkeling.  I was ready to stay there forever. Here’s how our day went down.

Started the day with an early morning meditation and then watched the sunrise (view form my bedroom balcony)

We met our sunset cruise gang at our local beach, one of my favourite places to hang out while in Coco.

One day, my man and I will have a sailboat like this and will island hop around the world together.

When our snorkeling destination came into the horizon, I got quite excited. Felt like we were arriving on Gilligan’s Island!

Our captain pointed out at the dip in the cliff indicating a lookout spot for those who weren’t afraid of a little climbing.

The view from the top was breathtaking. This photo doesn’t even do it justice.

The water around the island had a beautiful turquoise tint to it and it was sooo warm! Pure heaven.

And of course, there is always THAT couple that provides the entertainment on the tour… Joking aside, they were quite colourful characters but were also super nice.

This moment was well worth waiting for. No filter needed.

This video is worth watching. The sun literally looked like it was sinking into the Pacific. So beautiful and magical (sorry for the bouncing around but in my defense, we were on a boat).

Wow, what a day. And as if it couldn’t get any cooler, as we cruised into our beach, there were flying fish jumping out of the water all over the place. I think Costa Rica wants us to come back…. soon. ;)

    • Merci! Oui, cet appareil fait toute la différence! Tellement contente d’avoir un bon outil de travail maintenant. :)

    • Thanks dad! Yes, I am so happy to have a proper camera now. Makes such a difference. And I guess I’m a pretty quick learner. Was lucky enough to have a few good teachers surrounding me and probably some good photographer genes too. ;)

  • What’s up, surfer dudette? Tes photos sont tellement belles et donnent TELLEMENT le goût d’y aller!!! J’ai hâte que tu me racontes!

    En passant, lorsque je clique sur la première vidéo, je suis incapable de la visionner, ça indique qu’elle est privée. Est-ce normal?

    • Merci Chadi! Le Costa Rica est un pays magnifique avec un si beau peuple. Ils sont intelligents, vraiment sympas et on ne sent vraiment les bienvenus. Ça devrait être ta prochaine destination soleil! :) Et merci pour le commentaire sur la vidéo, elle était effectivement mise privée pour une raison que j’ignore. J’ai apporté le changement.
