Happy to disconnect

I left the Okanagan on Jan. 15 without my cellphone, headed to Costa Rica, returning Jan. 25.

I wanted to "unplug" while in a tropical country for my first winter getaway in 10 years.

Never put the TV on, only electronic device I used was my camera, to take as many photos as possible. Didn't miss the phone, internet news or social media for one second.

A lesson for all of us to be more present ... I listened to the ocean all day and watched an amazing sunset every night in Costa Rica. Best of all, I was watching the lunar eclipse and full moon, while sitting outside in the warm night air, with the sound of the Pacific Ocean.
