I stepped from the shower at the exact moment I heard my husband desperately beckoning me to our balcony at Casa Caracol, Panama. What could be happening? A Tsunami, perhaps? Quickly, I slithered into my bottoms and thinking we were alone, cupped my boobs and ran outside. A cleaning lady stood next door, photographing the mysterious spectacle too. Giggling, I ran inside to add some cloth to my upper regions, returning to the balcony amidst a cartoon cloud of smoke.
Something extraordinary was happening, alright…cows. We've been on back roads in Central America during a cattle drive many times. Once, an errant cow almost sideswiped our driver's side mirror. But seeing cattle wrangling on the beach is priceless.
Only in Central America…

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.
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!
Thank you for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/08/along-eno-river.html
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.
Worth a Thousand Words
The View from the Top of the Ladder
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? :-)
Wooooo hoooo!!! "Keep rollin', rollin', rollin', keep movin', movin', movin', keep them dogies movin' RAWHIDE!!!" Who would have thunk it? catchatwithcarenandcody
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.
Too funny :)
Its like the sand have life and transformed itself into cattles because the sand the cattles have the same colour! Lovely capture! #photofriday
Hello, awesome shots of the beach and cattle. I have never seen cows on the beach, just horses. Great post!
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
amazing! Who knew cattle would be driven across beaches?!phyllis
Very beautiful scenery!
What a fantastic moment to capture!
This was definitely an unusual sight to see!
These are some really nice pictures for a travel album!
I might have seen a cow or two at the beach but not this many. You were at a great spot to get these shots from afar.
Thank you for hosting this blog hop, Sharon.
Have a good week. :)
Ha ha glad you didn't miss the spectacle despite the awkward situation you were in. Nice to see the cowboys in action.
Las imágenes se ven muy bien desde tu terraza. Es una interezante captura.
Feliz mes de agosto.
How cool is that!!!! I would love to move cattle on a beach!!!
We watched a cattle drive last year from our campsite in Eastern Oregon (Oregon's Outback). . Interesting, but definitely not on the beach and definitely NOT as much fun as you had!
A unique spectacle, and cool that you were able to experience it!
WOW!! That's really priceless and very well documented!
Cattle right on the beach....awesome! We see black and white cows and brown cows but these we don't see these kind up here in Illinois and Wisconsin. Perhaps they are here and I just haven't been in their neck of the woods. Nice captures.
amazing the things you see when travelling. Safe travles, enjoy your week and thanks again for the link up
