A Better Day

Things are better today! Yay!!! I know Sophie is in a better place, free from pain and suffering. Her little sister, Elsie, can't quite figure out where her companion has gone. She wanders around the house crying. She is lonesome. Barker tries his best to occupy her time, but it just won't do!

When we departed the Volcano Lodge near La Fortuna, we drove around Lake Arenal on our way to Flamingo Beach. The lake is a huge man-made body of water. You can barely catch a glimpse of it in the background of this picture.

Along the way to Flamingo Beach, we stopped at a lovely shop. Cousin Peggy Carpenter found this kitty cat and loved on her for a bit, while chatting with Marcia. (I think Peggy must have been missing a kitty cat from home.)

Flamingo Beach is on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, hence some fantastic sunsets!!!

Craig, ever the romantic, captured this scene!

Sister-in-law Molly sent this along this morning:
Click Here: Check out "Jackson Pollock by Miltos Manetas"
Try it, you'll like it!

OK, I need to go pack my bags. We are headed here to take a class from her! I am soooo excited! To think that my dearly beloved Craig would spend his birthday driving me to Indianapolis so that I can take a class! Now that truly is love, isn't it?!!
Watch out Mrs. Mel, we're on our way!!!!!
