Krista and Dave arrived on Monday for four nights and five days. They flew in from Oregon. They both work crazy hours and hadn't had a break in quite a long while, and they were long overdue. They needed a place that offered some much needed respite. And they chose Hush Valley Lodge to decompress. We spent a great deal of time with them because we found we had so much in common.
We learned that Dave has a passion for roasting coffee and brought us a bag of his own batch (how generous is THAT!!). He was particularly interested in going on the coffee tour in Santa Maria... it did not disappoint (it never does). They enjoyed exploring San Marcos, too. They went to the Catarata restaurant, which has a lovely waterfall and good food. Oh, and Krista brought me the book Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert (one of my favourite writers), which was amazing. I read it in two days flat.
By the time Friday rolled around, we felt like old friends. You can read their guestbook comment here.
