Views of My Commute

January 11th, 2013 in About Me

Life in Costa Rica is in a lot of ways just like back home. I take the kids to and from all their things, change one billion diapers, have the same errands to run, a house to clean. You know just the hubbub of daily life.

The ocean always has been a place I love because it has a way with me. It is hard to explain…but I will try. The sound and rhythm of the waves seems to take everything in me and take it out to sea. And I am only left with a feeling of calmness and peace. Yes even when Tyler and I are running around like chickens with our heads cut off making sure that all 4 kids don’t drown. Even then I feel only happiness inside of me.

I am not a jewelry kind of gal, even down to my wedding ring, which at the moment is a $40 hand-melted twist of silver. But I do have one piece of jewelry that is important to me:

My heart does long for the sea!


Back to the point of this post, I just wanted to show you the views from the main road. I drive it quite a few times a week to take someone somewhere or to get some errand done. Not too shabby huh?

    You don’t need to put it into words for me. I feel the stirrings of the ocean. There is no other place in the world like it but I can’t put it into words either. I find too long without the ocean and I will make any excuse to get there. Darren and I went to Carmel and walked that beautiful beach on a cold and windy day with the waves higher than I have ever seen them and I felt peace. :-)

    And this is why I want to live near an ocean someday. And why the only place I ever want to vacation (really and truly) is seaside.

    So – when are you going to get back in the ocean and pretend your are 8 years old again?

    Beautiful Vanessa! Thanks for your nice comment about our sticker project. I love meeting/hearing about other expatriates. It somehow makes some of the bumps a little more bearable knowing that there are others making it happen, too. I look forward to checking in on your adventures in Costa Rica.
