My Trip To Guanacasta, Costa Rica (Part 2)

Okay, so this is going to be a three-parter!  I thought I would be able to share all of the photos...well, no that's not quite true...most of the photos, in two parts, but NOT!  There will be a third and final posting!  The Andaz resort on Peninsula de Papagayo was an experience I will take with me always.  I didn't know I could be so relaxed and truly stress free.  I really hated to leave, but now it is October and today's temperature is eighty-four degrees in Atlanta!  What is really going on?

Relaxing by the pool in my wide brim hat that I purchased while at Coco Beach.

Dinner at Ostra.  Some of the best seafood I've ever had the pleasure of eating!  The preparation of ceviche!  Yummmmmm!!!!  If you have never had it, you really don't know what you're missing!

The family swimming pool at the Andaz resort.

Another view of the family swimming pool with Bhongo, the restaurant we enjoyed breakfast at daily!  Oh how I miss those omelets!  The banana French toast!  The cappuccinos!  The fresh fruit!  Okay...enough already!!!  Oh my gosh, there was this pepper that was so freakin hot, all I had to do was kinda graze my eggs on it and they would be almost flaming!  Oh yeah...they were called jalepenos!  Trust and believe, unlike any jalepeno I've ever had here in the states! 

A path to Bhongo

The incredible view from our balcony!  If we weren't at the pool, this is where I could be found!

2014 Serenbe Designer Showhouse Part II

And finally, here are the rest of the images that I took while touring the Serenbe Designer Showhouse.  Again, if you live in or near Atlanta, it is worth a trip to the Serenbe community.  There are so many events going on right now.  Fall is always an incredible time to get out and explore this lovely community.
This bridge leads to the homes at Swann Ridge in the Serenbe community.  It is so beautiful and picturesque.

The bridge with lanterns lighting it's path.

The view of the bridge on the side of the showhouse leading back to the main road that has all of the cafe's, shops, galleries, and boutiques.
