The untamed shores of the Golfo Dulce, what more can I say? Sigh. You can buy sunglasses for as little as two bucks (my husband always loses a pair in the rough surf), roam shoeless, abandon all matter of outerwear, pan for gold, park wherever you damn well please, and lose yourself, seemingly forever, 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, neglected, and downright wonderful things to see?
Old things have always fascinated me, and these weathered boats have seen better days. At low tide, they're landlocked and ripe for a photo safari. Follow my feet down memory lane…
The waters of the Osa Peninsula lap against the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
What lies beneath...
Blue and orange is a personal favorite color pairing. This scene is beautiful set against the warm cerulean sea and blue-gray mountains in the distance. I can still feel the warm, mushy sand beneath my feet. Paradise.

It would be sooo fun to go there!

All the blues in your pics are so pretty.
Love the texture you captured on the boat!
These are some great shots - thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/12/little-painted-desert.html! And have a wonderful 2016!
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 :)
Our Seaside Baby
Lovely spot. And all fine images but I just love that first one the best.
Love these boats ... My lens would go there automatically as well! Beautiful vacation spot!
Happy New Year!
As run down as it is, these pics are beautiful!
Love the boat shots especially that first one!
Really nice photos Sharon!
Thanks for the great posts on these beautiful areas...
Great shots and a woànderful place. I wish i could be there
Those boats sure make great subjects for photographs.
Thank you for these sights from Costa Rica and thank you for hosting this blog hop, Sharon.
Have a good week. :)
What fun! As usual, your pictures are awesome and well worth gawking over. Your eye never fails! :-)
Great to have a beach all for yourself. Boats make nice subject, reminded me of a Van Gogh painting.
Costa Rica is a great place to visit! Blue and orange are a favourite of mine. Our kitchen in our old house was done in those colours.
Love this post. It all makes me feel warm and happy! I have a lot of photos of boats not going anywhere! Like abandoned farm houses and decrepit barns, there is something interesting and special about these boats that makes you want to learn the 'rest of the story.'
Looks like a really nice beach to wander along. $2 is about how much I spend on glasses, dont' need them except to read with.
It looks wonderful! I like the photo from under the pier. You can pan for gold? That would be fun!
Run down becomes awesome when you have the camera to find it. Wonderful visit.
It looks like my kind of place. Something about old boats like that just makes for great photographs.
So wonderful how you weave words and photos into a fantastic tapestry. So talented.
Worth a Thousand Words
