Please forgive me, my dear readers and followers. After my last posting, I got hit with a bad cold that stopped me in my tracks. No energy, no attention span for two weeks has kept me off grid during that time.
I confess though, I enjoyed the break from virtual reality and spent the time relaxing. I’ve still plenty of wonderful images from my short visit to Costa Rica, and a trip southward to sunny Florida is on the near horizon. So look forward to a renewal of some wonderful nature and wildlife images to enjoy.
I left you last in the cloud forest in the mountains near Poas Volcano, enjoying the stunning nature seen at Poas Volcano Lodge and the Peace Lodge. Continuing, we will drive along the highway and discover the beautiful waterfall named La Paz waterfall. Now included in the Waterfall Gardens at Peace Lodge, I remember this waterfall from my first visit to this area back in 1985.
At that time, it was a small country road in the middle of the wilderness. A rickety wooden bridge to cross, the waterfalls shrouded you in the mist from its power.
Still running strong today, the La Paz Waterfalls can now be seen from above by walkways throughout the Waterfall Gardens at Peace Lodge. Now with a modern bridge, the highway is nicely paved and busy with cars and trucks going to and fro.
The power of the waterfalls thunders, deafening the sounds of the traffic and taking you to a different place in its cool mist.

Take good care, my dear friend!!!
Finally getting better but still not 100%. Thanks you my dear friend.
Such beautiful scenes…Safe travels.
Travel has been awesome Charlie. Thank you for your well wishes, they’ve worked!
Beautiful images… And do take care and get well soon 😊
Thank you for your kindness Santosh.
It looks wonderful! Hope you are now feeling much better. I remember breaking an ankle some years ago and after the initial horror I quite enjoyed the retreat from the world. I knew I would recover though and so did you and that makes all the difference, I guess! Here’s to the next trip! Xx
On my next trip and it’s been incredible also Corinne. Nope, we don’t like being halted in our tracks one bit do we? Life is too short to miss even a day. Thank you my dear.
So glad you are up and about and thanks for the reminder, life is too short to miss even one day! Xx
I’m glad you’re feeling better and I hope you’ll have a great time in Florida. Beautiful and peaceful pictures of waterfall!.😁
One blessing and a curse about getting older is seeing the change in places you know. I’ll be traveling down an old area today here in Florida that I know has dramatically changed. It’ll be hard to see.
Progress is not all that is cut out to be!
Hey! Hopefully you feel all better now. I have been away from the virtual world myself but not away from writing articles everyday ( for other websites just to get paid.) Seeing those pictures reminds me of my trip to Samal Island, Davao del Norte. I miss nature, it really eases your stress away.
Wow, congratulations to you to be able to write and get paid for them. I’m not very good at marketing and getting set up for this. Samal Island, sounds really exotic. I’m going to have to check it out. Thanks!
This is Samal Island
Beautiful images – hope you are feeling better soon, ready to enjoy all the Christmas festivities soon! 🙂
I’m going to short-change Christmas this year. I usually go all out, but the travel is much more fun this year. No baking, entertaining, decorating. It’ll be awesome !! Thanks Joanne.
That does sound awesome. I’m feeling much the same. Have just ordered the family matching pjs so that’s our entertainment at least ticked off now! 😉
Amazing images, Emily. Hope you’re well again now. 🙂
You are so kind Sylvia. Thank you so very much. I am indeed doing much better.
