It’s January. And it may not be cold – at least by normal Canadian standards – but it’s still a long time until summer. What better time could there be to devote a month to some of my favourite beaches?
We visited Costa Rica nearly two years ago, and it was one of our family’s most cherished trips. The country was beautiful, from the rain forest to the highlands, and there were lots of activities to choose from. But all that adventure didn’t keep us from spending precious time at the beach.
Since we stayed in an area that wasn’t too built up, we had the beach nearly to ourselves. We loved walking along the beach, looking for shells, and we loved playing in the water. But cold-weather Canadians that we are, the real highlight was the surfing lesson.
For many of you, surfing is no big deal. But none of us had tried before, and the girls were excited about taking lessons. I feel like I should insert a comment about how gnarly the waves were, but why don’t I show you the girls in action instead.
Whether we were in the mood for adventure or relaxation, this beach had it all.
