We have departed our house sitting gig in Puntarenas and arrived in the cooler climes of San Ramon, Costa Rica. This new house sitting assignment is for only one week in a beautiful home just north of the city of San Ramon in the province of Alajuela. The owners were so kind as to come and pick us up in Puntarenas and drive us the 51km (31 miles) to their home.
Our new home is a beautiful house with an outstanding view out over the surrounding valley. As I went for a run this morning I discovered the beauty of the rolling valleys and friendly neighbours we will have for the next week.
We are caring for a wonderful dog and a gorgeous cat. As well, the yard is frequented by hummingbirds that will provide me with a challenge of trying to capture a photograph of these amazing birds.
The good news is they should only get better.
The weather is much cooler here, 24C (75F), with lots of clouds and consistent afternoon showers dropping anywhere from 1 to 3 cm (.5 – 1.25 in) of rain which is fine with us at this point.
