Cattle Wrangling


Something pretty amazing happened on this beautiful beach in Playa Corona, Panama.



There's cows in them... there...beaches.









This is one of the coolest things I've ever witnessed in Central America. Sure, we've been on some back roads during a cattle drive. An errant cow almost took off our driver's side window once. But seeing it on the beach, is priceless. 




I was just stepping out of the shower when my husband called me out onto the balcony at Casa Caracol. I put on the first thing I could find, a bottom, and ran out cupping my boobs. But when I saw the cleaning lady, also taking photos, I ran back in to put more clothes on. Ha! Then I snapped as many photos as I could. 

Only in Central America.

Now, check out something that only happens in your spam folder. Curious as a cucumber? Check it out over at the The Chorus of the Crows

Cows on the beach are a familiar sight in several places of the world: India, Sardinia, South Africa, Scotland.
They gather on the beach looking for sun and fun.

Great shots!

That is COOL! I just moved to the country last year and have grown to really appreciate (& befriend) cows! Sweet creatures they are!

It looks so odd to see cows along the beach!

Great post Sharon! What a great sight to see in person. Definitely not something you see everyday. I guess you have to be aware of cow patties in the sand after that.

That is something I would never have thought would happen. (Though being from the West US we've been stuck behind or in the middle of cattle drives several times in our travels... but certainly never on a beach.) That would be bit disconcerting if you happened to be walking or lounging on the beach at that time. Really interesting!

Wow! Fascinating to see a 'cattle drive'on a beach ~ Here they won't even let dogs on the beach in summer and some places in all year ~ Great photography!

Wishing you a lovely week ~ ^_^

How odd, but nice isn't it? Saw horses and cows on the beach in Bangladesh too.

What a wonderful sight and so unusual

Wow! That is pretty darn unusual, I'd say. Glad you captured it so you could share it with me. Some of those cows look a little skinny, don't they? :-)

That's a new one for me. Thanks for sharing.

Hahaha, that is really spectacular. Maybe the beach is the widest space to maneuvre the herd, and of course less traffic too. I agree, maybe that is only in South America.

Its like the sand have life and transformed itself into cattles because the sand the cattles have the same colour! Lovely capture! #photofriday
