The most recent unexpected event I could think of was our visit to Celestun, Yucatan to see real live flamingos. Not flamingos that stand around in a pond at the zoo…but real live flamingos, in the wild, in their own habitat, with their families and their friends…NOT surrounded by screaming children with nowhere to go and nowhere to fly.
Fortunately, for the flamingos, the boat we hired was only allowed to get within a certain distance. Unfortunately for my photography we couldn’t get closer.
I could have watched these pink creatures all day. Tina and I both have a long standing love for these unique creatures. So having the opportunity to see hundreds of them at one time was a dream come true.
Cee has opted for an open topic this week…so we get to post the photos of our choice!
I’ve chosen to post a few photos I took while in Mexico earlier this month.
We visited a local cemetery. This cross with the hat and cane really touched me. I imagine this gentleman must have been someone’s grandfather. And for some reason I think he must have been quite a character…
This is Harley…his people were our hosts for the week.
And finally…a street sign.
