Hello! Welcome to my homey beach in Costa Rica. This blog is about me, what I think, and what I do. I’d like us to get to know each other, and I put myself out there first.

I am a more mature hombre who decided to retire in Latin America in 1999. However, My initial plan was a 5-year adventure, but I kept missing my plane for 19 additional years!

My Costa Rican beach adventure started when I was forty-nine years old. It was when I moved permanently here. I was looking for something different, and I found it! Pretty cool, really, so I thought I’d share it.

Here is a link for more detailed information on my personal life. Click at your own risk.

I’d be old enough to deserve a wheelchair in the old days, but nowadays, there are many healthy at my age. Thankfully, I still have a good motor and walk 3 kilometers to town almost daily.

And this simple walk is a constant source of new material for this blog because something is always happening! Through my walk, I get drawn into unusual situations and interactions, as I explain you’ll get the real lowdown on my adopted country. A view that those of you thinking about moving here should know about.
