A commute along Tamarindo Beach

I have shown photos recently of Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco, about an hour north of Tamarindo, so I thought I would show a photo of Tamarindo beach for contrast.

Something is strange about this photo. There is a woman walking with a purse and wearing a dress on the beach. My guess is that she works in a shop in central Tamarindo and she is walking home at the end of the afternoon. Rather than walking along the main street, which runs along he beach, she has taken off her shoes and walks along the beach. What a pleasant commute to and from work!

This is a photo from the north end of Tamarindo beach, which is the area popular with surfers. The south end of Tamarindo beach is protected from the waves by an island and reef, so the surfers gather in this area.

We are showing photos of Norway this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Life's a beach! A dreamy photo for someone stuck in snowy Minnesota!
BTW, I'm having problems getting Julie's CDP blog in Arizona to load - no problem with yours!

Barefoot on the beach after a days work, I can think of worse things.

Now, if she ever complains about her commute, we have the evidence!

As Leif says, 'life's a beach' and what a beach. I'd walk home this way too...
