Playa Flamingo bay

This is a photo of the north end of the bay, looking south towards Playa Flamingo. As you can see, the coast line in this area is dotted with islands, peninsulas, and small pocket beaches.
This is about 15 - 20 minutes north of Tamarindo. The scenery is different, as Tamarindo has a long stretch of beach where people can walk for miles along he beach. In the area around Playa Flamingo, the scenery is dramatic, but you cannot walk very far along the smaller beaches. It is more common to see houses and condos up on the hills to take advantage of the views overlooking the ocean and coast, rather than houses and condos down next to the beach.

This week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site, we are showing colorful photos of the sunrise glow on the monuments of Washington, D.C.

There is a nice view from here.

Looks like a place where a person could find some solitude.

That was a funny story with a happy ending in your comment on Prescott DP.

I would love to escape by hot but too humid Midwest day for some time in that scene. Lovely photo, dave!
