We had a lovely couple from Washington State stay with us last week. They own a 140+-acre farm just outside Seattle so they can fully appreciate the work involved to keep any large property running smoothly. They also have to deal with Mother Nature in her own special way. We had a great time chatting with them and exchange stories. What they don't have on their property are trout ponds, so they were happy to catch their dinner.
You can read their guestbook comment here.
And as the rainy season is in full swing, Kevin and Martin have been building an open-sided shelter for the bulls, just above the closed shelter they built a few months ago. The bigger bulls stay out all day and night now and standing in the rain is not big deal, but when it's lashing down, the baby bulls could use a dry spot to relax in.
And I've not reported on critters lately... Kevin spotted this little guy yesterday. I have no idea what he's called, but I love his long, spindly tail.
As for today... I simply cannot wait to host our next guests. None other than my beautiful niece, Jocelyn, and five of her friends will be staying with us for two days. So much fun!!

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
