Ranch house cow hide

The ranch house had this skin hanging on the outside. I think it is from a cow, as there are no other animals this size in the area.

I think that they might have built this part of the ranch house using wood from someplace else because it looks like some of the boards were painted before this addition was built. Otherwise, it would not make much sense to paint some of the planks and not others.

This is the final photo in this series from our visit to a local ranch. I hope you have found it of interest. Julie and I enjoyed the chance to see everyday life of a local family up close, rather than staying in the tourist and international community of Tamarindo, where very few Costa Ricans live. Even our local lawyer lives in the next town inland because, as he explains, he wants to pay "Tico prices."

We have photos of the Atacama Desert of northern Chile on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week. It is an amazing, colorful, barren landscape.

The boarded up window frame is interesting. I enjoyed this group of photos showing ranch life in Costa Rica.

Probably a cow, yeah, or a bull. Anyway, it looks good along with the house. It kind of completes that Wild West feeling of a ranch, don't you think?

Aww! I feel bad for the cow! That must’ve hurt! Yeah, it’s really eye-catching, but I just can’t help but feel sorry for the cow. Anyway, except for the cow skin, I appreciate how the place looks so green, very comforting and soothing! It definitely feels refreshing to be in this place where nature is within reach.
