April Theme Day: Red Surfboards

Tamarindo is a surfing town, so my interpretation of the theme of "red" for the April 1 worldwide Daily Photo Theme Day is to show some varying shades of red surfboards.

These are rental surfboards at one of the surf shops in town. There are quite a few surfing shops that offer lessons, tours to popular surfing spots in the area if people want to try out a variety of the beaches, and rental surf boards.

I am not a surfer, and serious surfers may think that having condos in Tamarindo but not being a surfer makes about as much sense as living in Aspen and Vail and not being a skier. There is a lot to do besides surfing, of course, and we enjoy the ambiance of the beach even if I do not get out and try to ride the waves.

This week we are showing photos of India on our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage. If you have not yet checked out those photos, I encourage you to do so.

I like your red surfboards for red the theme day.

I chose a picture I took 55 years ago of my Patty wearing a red dress. On April Fool's Day, April 1, 1955.

I gave her a diamond engagement ring, and today, April 1, 2010 is my entry for theme day on my Brookville Daily Photo blog.
