Our time continues on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua. We can see the Punta Jesus Maria from the beach in front of the house so it is close, and we heard it was a great place to visit so this was on the agenda for today.
First though, the day begins at the house.
Our resident hard working and busy rooster.
One of the trees has starting blooming and making a purple carpet on the ground.
There was another black witch moth on the rafters this morning
Another addition to my “pigs in mud” collection. This one was in the street leading out of the neighborhood.
These signs are all over. This is an island. If the volcano blows I doubt there is anywhere safe on the island!
Our destination was close so we set off on the bicycles. There was a sign on the road directing us where to turn off, and we found ourselves on a beautiful canopied side road leading to the point.
The road to the point was so beautiful
There were so many interesting trees along the way
Some of the trees had trunks that were very white.
There were also a number of these dangerous looking trees.
There were also a couple little snack bars at the point
We reached the point in the afternoon when the sun was starting to get lower in the sky, and it was absolutely beautiful! Everyone who told us that this was a place that we must visit was certainly right.
The view of the volcano was fantastic
The water in the sunlight was also beautiful
At the end of the point you can see both volcanos.
The clouds over the volcano are constantly changing
This boat may look old and battered but it had been out on the lake, and guys had been using it to fish with nets.
Joel looks for interesting things in the sand.
The sky is as beautiful as the water
A couple fishermen come in as the ferry passed behind them
What a view, and the clouds look like they are coming out of the volcano
The guys pulled the boat across the point and parked it on the beach next to this huge fallen tree
There were quite a few people enjoying the water
I’m not sure if this is a raft or what, but the boys were having fun
The sky got more interesting as time passed.
This guy brought his fish to the water to clean and wash them
As we headed home we passed my favorite view of the volcano from the airport.
Last, but certainly not least, we had another beautiful sunset over the lake right in front of the house. Life is indeed quite nice on Ometepe Island!
