Coastline

Here is an aerial photo of the coastline on the approach to a landing at the international airport in Liberia, Costa Rica. On flights from the USA, the airliners approach from the north, swoop along the Pacific coastline of southern Nicaragua and northwestern Costa Rica, and then bank eastward to land.

As I have recommended before, a window seat on the left side of the plane (facing forward) provides a nice view of the coast.

As you can see in this photo, the coastline in this area is a series of coves and pocket beaches, shaped like the edge of pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. In Tamarindo, our coast has long beaches and fewer inlets.

This week we are showing photos of the Amazon Jungle and the Nazca Lines of Peru on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Jigsaw puzzle is a good description for this jagged coast line.

I'll bet there are a lot of very nice places accessible by boat along that coastline. Nice shot...I have a hard time getting nice shots like this from an airplane.

Re your comment on Ocala DP: Funny! Those trees are way overdone!
