I am going to take advantage of the fact that we have good, fast internet and upload pictures of our “circumnavigation” of Isla Montuosa. Let’s go a visual journey together, shall we?
Can it get any prettier? I had to drag my jaw along behind me. “THere must be some kind of Hermit Crab Convention going on.” Upon Closer Inspection – “Um! I think they’re eating an Iguana or something.” “This calls into question my theory about hermit crabs being vegetarians.” They had crawled inside the mouth and were going at it from the inside. “Yeah, that’s just kind of…gratuitous.” Jungle Tree Stretch Marks! I can only dream of having such beautiful stretch marks. Those little flowers would be bananas one day! If they were still attached to the tree. Now, they’ll just be mulch. Lots of little alcoves. Lava flows? I’m drooling. Look at those stunning colors. We walked the entire circumference of ISla Montuosa at low tide. Hiding from Hermit Crabs. Waves of sand and pebbles. There was SO MUCH beautiful beach glass on this island. I was in heaven. Pinch Me. No seriously. If I was a tree, I would be this tree. What a resilient specimen, its roots, clinging to rock, covered in salt water at high tide. Beautiful, lone tree. WE FOUND A NICE LITTLE SWIMMING HOLE. Those are some good looking trunks, my love, The shades of brown and black were mesmerizing. “Our boat should be just around that corner” – we said at every corner… colorful beach rubbish. Why is it always teal? There she is! Three miles and a couple hours later. We had to anchor far from shore since there is lots of coral surrounding the entire island. Sometimes, In Latin America, I feel like that Palm tree. Lots of life here. We could see colorful fish from the boat. Visibility was easily over 30 feet. Naked nap time!
