Let's go SURFING!

I am heading off to the sun and warmth of Costa Rica for three weeks. I'll be getting the telephones installed in the houses, building a hot-water system for the rental house, making some furniture, and hopefully paddling out to surf twice each day.
The waves just start getting good around now, more and more sand building up on the beaches, giving a good sweet ride nearer to high tide.
People just can't believe how much work it is just to get to my place, on the outer edge of the Nicoya Penninsula. First, take the Clipper to Seattle, and stay overnight. Next day, it's two 4 1/2 hour plane rides; Seattle to Dallas, Dallas to San Jose, arriving about 9:30 pm local time. Day three: Drive three hours to the coast, take a two-hour ferry to Paquera, then it's an hour drive to the idylic community of Playa Hermosa de San Martin. ( Not on ANY map, even the local ones! ) If you are interested, check out some information on the area at: www.malpais.net
So, does anyone have any delightfully depraved celebrations planned? We are still working on those ideas, but I am all for setting up the sort of bachanal that the stones pictured on the inside sleeve of their classic " Beggar's Banquet ". Costumes, lots of yummy treats, good wine, fine folks..... A veritable Saturnalia!
