Dallas, Texas, the largest city in the United States without a navigable waterway to the ocean has a strong connection to Costa Rica Nature Conservatory. Costa Rica has long been attached to the developers and entrepreneurs of Texas. The Ticos as they are called by their own selves in Costa Rica owe their banks, railroads, plantations of all types and an ever growing population of gringo property owners from Texas to the Lone Star state that quietly remains friendly to them in spite of their often tragic way of treating us.
Beyond any judgments of whether we should harbor this amity we continue to foster a brotherhood across the gap of water that separates us from the quickest route although we could eventually alight on their precious beaches by hiking ten thousand miles of coastline from the Gulf of Mexico starting in Houston which by the way connects with the Trinity River here in Dallas which could theoretically transport at least a small boat all the way their.
Following are some choice pictures from our continuing education of the worlds jewels which are both natural to us and unnatural until we are accustomed to them.

Volcanoes,Video with infrared capture timeless icons from a prehistoric age continue to enthrall us as they smolder and spew the vital minerals of life onto the surface of the land we inhabit. This challenge to our temporary artificial island of culture en wrapped in convulsing folds of earth connected by lines of smooth pebbles and bathed in constant sunshine and rain seems to be beyond our grasp. Our memories are made of rovings to and fro over her dusty rocky faces covered now and again with vegetation and nesting creatures that afford us all the sounds we call nature. Her rumblings become loud cracks in the dawn whose purple colors are punctuated by steel melting heat from within the bowels of our mortal resting ground.

Here are a few signs from nearby and typical beaches in Costa Ricas central Pacific coast area. In a recent walkabout in the notoriously fowled mouth of the River Tarcoles and adjacent beaches I found many signs of human activities that favor the beach goers experience. I found decent beach latrines hidden behind flower hedges at playa Bochinche. The beach was perfectly clean of plastic and well marked with clean trash receptacles and clear instructions on trash disposal.
My walk continued through the Tarcolitos riverbed through mangroves at the mouth of the Agujas Beach also managed and cleaned by the Garabito Municipal officers and they are awesome examples of true beach pride with their Ecological Blue Flags displayed along side of information placards. The beaches were all peculiarly clean and devoid of almost all litter types, even trash food packaging!

Their is a deeper purpose present right here right now, listen to Her breathe for a moment and you will see Enduring Nature kindly guiding us.
