{costa rica 2008: pavones, dominical, and manuel antonio}

My husband Doug and I love to travel. Surfing together is one of our favorite hobbies and strongest bonds. In the past year or two, we have both become increasingly busy with work obligations so travel has been moved further and further to the back burner. Doug is a surfboard shaper and my career in photography means that we both have the same busy seasons. Sometimes it can be hard to schedule down-time (ha! scheduling down-time!) but it is so important to keeping our attitudes, work, and relationship fresh. A few weeks ago, he spotted a swell moving into one of the surf spots we have always wanted to visit, Pavones, Costa Rica. We booked tickets on Sunday and left on Wednesday. Luckily enough, a few of our friends happened to be renting a house in the area for a few months so we were able to visit them too. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip:

While we were visiting with our friends and their 1 and 1/2 year old daughter I got to take lots of cute pictures of her...what a great way to grow up! In the next post I will put up a few pics:)
