We hadn’t been down to the river for a while, so it was time for a visit (with camera in hand, of course)
We walk across the street and head into the woods, past the huge banana trees.
It hasn’t rained that much yet, but already the woods are looking greener. Grass is sprouting, heliconias and growing new leaves, and bits of green are popping up everywhere.
A beautiful spider is lying in wait at the base of one of the trees.
A plant up in a tree has a most interesting flower.
The water is very clear and calm today.
The beauty and tranquility of the river always makes me happy to be here.
Here at the river too, things are looking much more green than they were just a short while ago.
A man is making his way up the river with a very long bamboo fishing pole.
We saw some birds, and many tadpoles in the shallow water along the bank.
Other than the fisherman, we were the only people here on this quiet afternoon.
We have been told that there are spots even more beautiful than this, but I’ll always love this place!
