After a memorable day hiking to the Montezuma waterfalls, Carli and I treated our new friends to lunch since they were of such help. It was almost time for sunset at that point (I guess it was a late lunch), and because our view was so spectacular, we had the guys come to our villa to watch our last sunset in Santa Teresa.
^^Chino's essential, ha.
^^I really wanted to try and get this one shot "eating" the sun. Carli told me to put the caption "dinner," which I thought was brilliant.
^^And I got it! Do you see the boat crossing the sun here? I mean...ugh!
^^After the sunset, Carli and I had a cute dinner together at Shambala, celebrating our last night in Santa Teresa. The food was really, really good. I surprised myself by ordering this shrimp flatbread (I tend to eat pretty plain--"cardboard" as some like to say). And it was so good.
^^The next morning we were off to Arenal! I loved passing by these little life reminders as we left.
^^We had to drive back onto the ferry from Tambor to continue our trek to Arenal. Can I reiterate how great it was to have a car?
^^Being a newborn photographer, I can't help but want to photograph every baby I see. How cute is this munchkin!
^^And this one!
^^I was "caught" taking photos of her, and her family graciously lent her to me and Carli to keep playing and taking photos :)
^^This melted me.
^^Finally off the ferry, we headed toward La Fortuna. I loved seeing a bit of home with the sign to Los Angeles.
^^The grounds were so green and lush--and full of animals!
^^My first dinner in Arenal! After a long drive, it was so refreshing. Carli and I hopped in the jacuzzi after dinner, too. Needless to say, we were definitely enjoying life!
