Suzanne, Jim, Ann, and Bart at Thanksgiving dinner
We are now settled in the lively surfer town of Tamarindo on Costa Rica’s Nicoya peninsula. But yesterday we took a little journey out of town to Playa Negra to spend a very special Thanksgiving with old friends from Cambridge.
Our old neighbor Chris and his girlfriend Suzanne have a beautiful house in a stunning spot just above the beach. Our great friends Bart and Ann and Wil are down for the week. And so were Chris’s sister Susan and her husband Rick, who might rival us as political junkies.
We had a really fun day of conversation, game playing, wave hopping, political analysis, and of course turkey and all the most traditional trimmings.
