The Mangroves

All of these photos were taken at the beach (Barra de Santiago), but on the estuary side. The mangroves were amazing and refreshingly peaceful after being battered by the Pacific. A local guide named Julio Caesar (heck yes) took us out on his boat and showed us around. We got out of the boat and hiked around barefoot in the mud and encountered some angry crabs, shown below…

A lovely egret.

Some fishermen gather on the sand bar between the ocean and the estuary.

Pretty crab.

    The crab is colorful but he/she/it gives me the creeps. The first picture with the girl and the water taxi is great and I like the lighting.
