Here's a familiar scene we've become used to over the years. Tina and I have walked these roads in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, so many times we're become familiar with every detail.
And this includes the other people you meet along the way.....surfers, couples, strollers, locals, many dogs, iguanas and the occasional monkey.
Walking is good for the health. And the soul. It's why we do it. Even when a car is accessible.
The contrast is very stark compared to back home, where we find we drive everywhere. Often for no other reason other than we're in a hurry (or so we think) or we're used to it.
Sometimes you gotta walk just for the sake of walking. Indeed, it helps when the weather is so exquisite.
