Puerto Jimenez

Puerto Jimenez

The shores of the Golfo Dulce.  What more can I say?  Sigh. You can buy sunglasses for a few bucks (my husband always loses a pair in the rough surf), never wear shoes, pan for gold, park wherever you damn well please and lose yourself in the wilds of primitive jungle and beach.  

Is there something new to explore?  Not really.  But who needs new when you have rusty, shabby, old, dilapidated and downright wonderful things to see.

Old things have always fascinated me.  And these old boats have seen better days.  At low tide they're land locked. And ripe for photos.


The waters of the Osa Peninsula lap against the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. 

But there are more photo opportunities in Puerto Jimenez then just boats.  The deep blue Osa peninsula and pier was a great visual.  And a not so shabby stroll.  







What lies beneath.





Now where?



I know where my lens is heading.  It singularly wanted to focus on those downright dingy and delightful boats.




 A perfect color wheel combo of blue and orange. A personal favorite. Blue gray misty mountains in the back drop.  And warm, mushy sand beneath my feet.  Paradise.  

Need I say more? Well, O.K. I will. For more creative writing head over to The Chorus of the Crows I've posted a blurb and an excerpt of my future book!

Happy New Year bloggers and blogging friends!

those photo's of the boats just exude a feeling of relaxation and a slower pace of life....love them! I especially love the shot taken under the pier...something about that makes me want to step into the photo and run down the tunnel formed.

Gah I love those boats too! I wouldn't be able to resist them. I'd be as close to them as I could possibly get and I'd be taking photos of those piers as well - the lines are just gorgeous.

Thank you for sharing with us at Photo Friday! Happy New Year!

Fantastic photographs and stunning scenery. The boats remind me of a little island in England called Mersea Island where my grandparents once lived. There's a harbour with lots of colourful little boats like these blue ones. Nice to discover your blog through Wordless Wednesday. Polly :)
