Coast Visit! Part 1

We were delighted to take a little trip to the Coast to help celebrate Brother Bob's birthday! 

Yes, he's 39...again...he's still looking and acting like a young whipper/snapper (how does he do that?)

We always try to fly everywhere rather than go by land (Rich gets terrible motion sickness).  So, we hopped on a plane with our favorite airline, Aerogal.  30 minutes later, we were off that plane and hugging Birthday Bob!

(This is a pic of the embroidered headrest...iguana!)

Frigate birds on the planes, too!

It's been awhile since we've seen the ocean.  Here's our first glimpse of sand and sea, this trip.

Rox and Coquita were ready for us.

We had the joy and honor to be the first visiters in their new Suite!  And, what a Sweet Suite it is!! 

All decorated up, with all the nice little touches.  Highly recommended if you're headed that way. 

Our own private porch.

All the beautiful pictures of sunsets you've seen on Bob and Rox's blog are actually even more beautiful in person.  But here's our version, too.

We ate, we drank, we chatted and visited for hours and hours.  We walked on the beach and loved getting our toes in the sand and surf. 

We had to visit Montanita again to see all the updates and changes.  We also visited with Shell and Marsha and, what a fabulous place they have built up the road. 

And, of course, we celebrated the Birthday Boy at his favorite restaurant, the Casa Blanca!  We had ring-side seats, perfect for people-watching...we watched families and surfers, street entertainers and vendors and crazy kids pass on by. 

We relaxed to the roar of the waves, soaked up some warm sun and had a whole lot of fun!  Happy to be home in Cuenca, but we sure had fun at the Coast with family.  Already planning the next visit.

Part 2 of the Coast is next.
