Day in The Life – Holly Beck Obermeyer and Luna at Brisas

We are so happy with our new home on lot #22 at Brisas. Here’s a quick little tour looking at what life is like living in Nicaragua with our 5 month old baby girl Luna.

Katie and Damian bought lot #14 sight-unseen based on the recommendation of a friend. They work on yachts and finally got a chance to travel down to check out their investment. They were super stoked realizing the lot was bigger and closer to the beach than they had imagined. Not wanting to waste time, they got right to work planting a fence and some trees. They hope to start building next year.

Living at Brisas Surfing Lifestyle

It’s been almost two weeks and we’re loving our new home at Brisas Del Alma. We’re still very busy settling in, putting finishing touches on the house (building shelves to store all our stuff mostly), and embracing our new lifestyle. It feels so good! Here are a few quick pics I snapped the other day to give you a taste. fiery sunrise Gorgeous sunrise volcano view. lobo bodegaLobo waits patiently to head to the beach.kim walk to surfWalking from home.kim stretchKim stretches it out before paddling out.kim backside cuttykim drop inkim cuttykim tube tuck A small but super fun day!sweet left volcano view

Holly and Kim Break Ground on their Nicaraguan Nest

We’ve built a few houses/structures in Nicaragua so far, but none are really baby friendly. Either too small, no power, no water, or both, we had been planning the true family house for a while. Once we found out there was baby on the way, we finalized the plan and broke ground on a 1400 sq ft, (1900 including workshop), 2.5 bedroom, 2 bath home on lot #22 at Brisas. We’ve let our team know that the pressure is on to finish the house before September when the baby is due. Will it happen? follow along on our blogs: hipEhabitat.com and saltwatermama.com

Amigas Surf the Island Point

Amigas Surf the Island Point

If the Boom isn’t happening or you aren’t into thumpy beach breaks, the island point is a fun left accessible by a very short boat ride. Check out these ladies enjoying the point on a fun swell in December.

Surf Lifestyle at the Boom

The waves aren’t perfect every day. Sometimes it’s small and kinda closed out, lumpy, and plagued by riptides. That’s just a part of surfing. But the sunrise is beautiful, the beach is empty, the water is warm. Even if the waves aren’t firing, the surf lifestyle is awesome. On this day, I took my two dogs for a sunrise surf session, caught a few little waves, and just appreciated the moments. lobo bounce tube view
