Having decided to explore the vast section of beach, which lies beyond a shallow river next to Tela’s Capitán Beach Hotel, I – as usual, carried my trusty iPad within a rucksack.
The iPad, captured many clear, sunlit photos. Tela’s palm-tree-laden coastline, complete with its shining golden sands and a light blue Caribbean Sea – demanded photo-taking.
Drenched in sea water, this tree stump lay lethargically in the incoming tide. Small fish could be seen escaping from underneath it. They darted around wildly; a burning sun piercing the water’s surface.
Turning sideways upon reaching this larger, fallen section of Palm tree, I could view the towering mountains stood over in the far distance. They surround the glorious Caribbean city of Tela. I contemplate how blessed I am to be able to call this wonderful place my home.
After patrolling the wide, empty beach, I pottered into the bush. Home to many birds that wallow and paddle through the shallows, one should always keep an eye out for nasty red ants or worse – the snakes, which here in the Tropics are venomous – more often than not.
This was composed in 2017 for a photography blog, that I managed.
