Ann and Bob Riccardella of Spruceton, had a fabulous vacation recently.  Ann described their adventure:  “We rented a house with three other couples from Spruceton Valley for a week in Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica and we all enjoyed many of the great things the country has to offer, including the beach, delicious food, a sunset cruise on a catamaran and a very action packed trip to the rain forest that included zip lining for the more daring members of our group, horseback riding where we saw monkeys scooting about the tree tops and a particularly large one hanging by a very long arm from a tree branch, a hike to a beautiful waterfall and a walk on the narrow hanging bridges which were anywhere from 20 to 40 feet above the forest floor.  The weather was perfect.  The trip was a great combination of relaxing and fun filled activities.  It was great to get away from the cold weather for a week, but we are very happy to be back home in our beautiful valley.”  Sounds like everyone had a wonderful time!
