Thanks for the positive comments from the so many of the 500 viewers, here are more comments and pictures to blow away your winter blues. PS/we had two days of torrential rains.
Carol is looking out to the sea from the main square where many of us go to watch the sunset just before 7PM. (3 spectacular sunsets included here) In the morning, just after the sun makes it over the eastern mountains, I love to photograph the insanely decorated graveyard.
The Mangrove Estuary provides a home for the American Crocodile and a (night) sanctuary for many bird species, The cormorants, the yellow crowned night heron, and the red crab, all pictured here. Carol is holding a 2 1/2 year old crocodile that is 2 1/2 feet long. They usually live to over 40 and can get to 4 meters long. One such beast is caged in his own pond as he had a habit of wandering about the town eating dogs.
Other birds pictured here are the snowy egret, the orange cheeked woodpecker eating papaya seeds, the blue footed booby, and the chachalaka in the tree outside our new digs. Carol is pictured on our patio in a hammock sipping a gin and tonic in the late afternoon.
The picture of the couple is an impromptu snap of newly weds on the beach.
