Mouth of the Tamarindo Estuary

This is the mouth of the Tamarindo Estuary, looking from the estuary out to the ocean. A huge volume of water streams into and out of the estuary with each tide, as you can tell from the width of the estuary. The estuary snakes inland for a long ways, with many fingers extending into mangrove forests.

A week or so ago I posted a series of photos of my wife, Julie, not wanting to cross the mouth of the Langosta estuary at high tide. I thought I would show photos today and tomorrow of the mouth of the Tamarindo Estuary at low tide, as you will see that it can be pleasant and calm at the mouth of the estuary. I will take a little closer look at this same subject tomorrow.

This week we are showing photos of India on Viva la Voyage, our travel photo site.

Reminds me a lot of places in the Florida Keys. Very beautiful.

Re your comment on the tree...in Florida, a tree chopped back like this will grow like crazy through the summer ... we have found that just about any plant will become a tree in a year or two if left unpruned!

If it wasn't for the little strip of land, you would have a hard time separating the sky from sea.
