Arenal Report

October 26, 2012

Thank you Trent Duschene, owner of the Agua Inn Spa (formerly the Blue Zone Spa), for hosting the October meeting of the Ladies of the Lake. The swimming pool was refreshing and the spa staff provided chicken kabobs and a variety of fresh fruit juices. Support for Sister Alicia’s mission in Tierras Morenas was increased to meet a growing demand for her services to families in need.

 Victoria Torley spearheaded the formation of the Lake Arenal Garden Club with a successful inaugural meeting at her home. Next meeting is Nov. 5 at 1 p.m., and will include a plant exchange. 

The Little Longhorn Restaurant has opened in San Luis near Las Brisas. Owners Jason and Cindy Carroccio offer a variety of burgers with all the fixings, including French fries and onion rings with eat-in or take-out service. Call 2695-2035 for orders to go.

Tico Winds will be adding paddleboard lessons and rentals to their windsurfing and kiteboarding business. For more info, visit www.ticowind.com or call 2692-2002.

A new event has been added to the Arenal calendar. Every first and third Sunday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. a feria (trade fair) takes place in the parking area located behind the Remax Realty office at Cinco Esquinas. Plants, homemade foods, artisan crafts, organically-grown vegetables and other items new and used are for sale. This is a popular event, so come early for the best choices.

Thanks to Lynn Farris, Sarah Benson and Rene Aoki for their assistance in writing this column.
