The Lagoon

We went on the boat pictured (just the four of us again) several miles down a lagoon to where it joins the sea. On the way we were treated to a wide variety of mainly bird wildlife some of which I managed to catch on camera. Among others we saw black vultures, ospreys, egrets, herons of various types, pelicans,(don't they look silly perching in trees with webbed feet!) frigate birds, terns and pink spoon-bills.We reached the sea just in time to watch a glorious sun-set while drinking our complimentary beers, then back up the lagoon in the dark where we were witness to an amazing phenomenon of phosphorescent plankton ..for the first time in my life I climbed over the side of a perfectly good boat and got into the water to better witness this magical display .Yike! I just could NOT be the only one not to.

  1. Can you believe you did that? The sense of adventure was too enticing wasn't it?
