Tamarindo beach and bay, from south to north

I have not shown photos of the beach lately, and Tamarindo is a beach resort town, so I will catch up with some photos of the beach and ocean.

This is a photo of Tamarindo beach and bay, looking north to Cabo Velas. This is from the south end of the beach, which is protected from waves by San Francisco point and island. You can see how gradual the slope of the beach is, as there are some people way out in this photo at low tide.

This photo also illustrates the difference between the weather during the "green season" compared to the November - April dry season. I took this photo a few weeks ago, and you can see the soft layer of clouds. During the high tourist season of December - March, it is usually clear, sunny and warm. The variable clouds, as shown here, during the summer vacation months for tourists makes it a little cooler.

We are showing photos this week of the birds, bridge and bats of Sydney, Austrialia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I like this gradual slope of the beach!

Absolutely beautiful sometimes I dont realize where I live. I forget to stop and take everything in from a busy day at work and errands. This photo reminds me of the beautiful place we live in! Great shot!
