So its Chrismas. Here is a nice sand castle from Cuba.
It was taken in November a few years back but I figured with winter starting to bight a picture of a nice sand castle is in order.

Tropical beer

19 Dec

I brought some beer back from Jamaica – six cans of Red Stripe.
The beer tasted great on the beach in Jamaica.
My friend brought me some beer from Mexico – six cans of Dos Equis.
The beer tasted great the last time I had it on a beach in Mexico.
However…
As I drink these beers at home, looking forlornly at the winterscape outside my window, the beers are just OK. They do not take me back to the beach. They do not make me pine for the beach.
The beers were good there, in the heat and humidity. Here, I want mere body, more hops. I want a good well flavoured beer. I won’t spill these out but I will seek out better drink for the winter.

Ungrateful crabs

18 Dec

2crabsI was walking along a beach,
minding my own business,
when out of a hole,
these two crabs popped out.
They scurried about while I was transfixed.
Then they posed for this picture.
I took this picture and I thanked them.
They crawled back into their hole without saying, “you’re welcome.”

Sunset beach

There is a peaceful calm when people vacate the beach in the evening.
The noise of the people is replaced by the sound from waves, wind, and seagulls and other bird eating what humans have discarded.
This shot was taken at a resort in Cuba.

Chilling on a beach

This photo was taken a few years ago in Tulum, Mexico.
It was a hot day but there was a nice breeze on the beach. As I stood on a cliff above the beach there was a bunch aof people cavorting noisily on my left. This woman was having a serene moment – she was on my left.
