Theme Day: Tranquility

Today's worldwide Daily Photo Theme is "Tranquility."  What could be more tranquil than relaxing at the end of the day, with the sun setting into the Pacific Ocean, and gentle waves lapping at the shore?

Well, taking photos of the sunset might add to the tranquility of the scene for photographers, as Julie is doing here, so I took yet another photo of her taking a photo.

Yesterday Brattcat left a comment about a friend who broke an ankle in Costa Rica and received excellent medical care.  Fortunately, I have not needed emergency care in Costa Rica, but health care in Costa Rica is rated as the same quality as the USA.  In fact, medical tourism is popular, with Americans coming to Costa Rica for medical and dental procedures at a fraction of the cost.

When Costa Rica abolished its military in 1948, it redirected the money to health care and education.  When the USA passed President Obama's health care reform, Rush Limbaugh said that he might move to Costa Rica, but he was evidently not aware that there is already a system of public health care here.

This week we have photos of the elegant villas and gardens of the Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore, Italy, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Great shot Dave. I find photography relaxes me so using it for a tranquility theme seems perfect.
