Cattle drive through town

In small towns in our area of Northwestern Costa Rica, it is not unusual to see ranchers leading cattle through town on their way from their pastures outside of town to the stables or other place where they keep their cattle for the night.

This photo shows some cattle walking right by the central square of the small town that I showed in my photos the last few days.

We have photos of Dubrovnik on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia this week on on our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage. It is a charming place and if you have not been there, you should enjoy the preview on our website.

those are teeny-tiny cattle.

This is a wonderful pastoral setting, and seems so old-fashioned and delightful in our fast-paced modern life.

It's a little touch of rural life. I love those floppy-eared cattle they have in Costa Rica.

The cattle are so pretty. Good thing you have a camera with you as you never know what might show up. I would have thought that with all that lush greenery that the cattle and horses would be quite fat.

I love it. How do they keep the animals in such a straight line?
