|Using a small pump to help install dock pylons|
Standing in the gorgeous blue water under a sparkling-blue sky the guys were using a small pump mounted in a rowboat, to force water into the sand around each new pylon allowing the heavy wooden pole to sink until it hits a solid coral or rock base.
The crew by now had installed the pylons, the crossbeams, and were about to start laying the planking. More blues - blue water, blue lettering on the big boat anchored in the bay, and blue shirts on the guys. My eye is naturally drawn to the colour blue.
|The turtles are out there .... having fun!|
It is a very fertile feeding ground for fish, sea turtles, and rays. We were looking for the big sea turtles that frequent this area in the spring, searching for mates and a little hanky-panky. Slap and tickle. Chuka-chuka.
We paid our thirty pesos admission fee for the municipal park, about $2.50, and wandered to the southern tip of the island. Wow! The colours are eye-popping beautiful. We were lucky enough to spot several turtles getting frisky. Unfortunately my camera lens wasn't powerful enough to photograph the turtles as they were quite a distance out - all I have is beautiful photos of beautiful blue water. I can live with that.
