In Tamarindo, you would not expect a dog to be waiting with a newspaper and slippers for the master to return from a busy day at the office. Here is a more typical pose for a waiting dog in Tamarindo -- a dog waiting for his master to finish surfing!
The patience of this dog is even more admirable when you consider that this dog would not seem to be the most suited to the climate along the warm Pacific coast of Costa Rican. I am sure that he enjoys the breeze off the ocean, and of course he can take a dip in the ocean to cool off, but in the warm weather 12 months of the year in our area of Costa Rican he will never experience the temperatures for which his thick coat was intended.
Maybe his owner is on vacation in Tamarindo from the central highlands that I have shown in my photos during the last few days. This photo was taken very close to our Langosta Beach condo.
We are showing photos this week of the unique Mayan pyramid of Ek Balam in the Yucatan, Mexico at Viva la Voyage.
