WOW! Overnight the wind really picked up, which for us is great – we aren’t big fans of air conditioning. Yes, the Villa is fully air conditioned, but we prefer the fresh air, which is plentiful where we are. But last night the “fan” got turned up.

We woke up this morning and had to secure some of the windows and doors, but the sun is shining and it’s going to be another beautiful day. Duncan whipped up a batch of fresh blackberry muffins. We had some workmen here touching up the stucco. We didn’t have to ask them twice if they’d like a muffin and coffee!

image Took  a walk into Tamarindo to buy a pair of board shorts. Since surfing is the #1 sport here I thought I’d try to blend in. So many to choose from! Got back in time for lunch; leftovers from our dinner at Wok N Roll. A leisurely afternoon was followed by an evening swim and shower before heading out to dinner.

We decided to stop for a drink at the Langosta Beach Club and ran into Darryl, one of the Club’s owners. Chatted with him for a bit then walked the rest of the way into town.

We intended on having dinner at La Palapa, one of our favorites for fried whole red snapper. Unfortunately they were having a wedding event. We spent the next 45 minutes wandering around and ended up at Dragonfly, a continental restaurant off the beaten path. It was very good – steak for both of us with tuna tartare and mahi mahi fish cakes for starters.

Walked back home passing by Lilly’s (I thought it was Milly’s) and were happy to see they were pretty busy. Then off to bed.
