one way to wake up in the morning

Ever since my (third) trip to Costa Rica in 1997, I have wanted an outdoor shower. We stayed at La Paloma Lodge, a beautiful rustic/luxury (if that makes sense) lodge nestled in the cliffs along the Pacific. The shower in our cabin was open air but private because of the heavy foliage and some strategically placed panels. It was lovely. Sunset Magazine has "11 Irresistible Outdoor Showers" on their homepage, so I thought I'd check it out. This one is my favorite:

I love that it can be accessed off the master bath. I would put a lot more plants in there, though, so it feels more like the jungles of Costa Rica.

You should totally do this!! just make a shower door in your current master shower and expand back! Did you ever have to share your shower experience in CR with the local wildlife? I'm assuming you are not bothered by the FL lizard & bug population that would set up residence in an outdoor shower with lots of plants.
