Isla Capitan at high tide

I took this photo from the balcony at the Crystal Sands. It shows Isla Capitan, or Captain Island, at high tide, when it is barely visible.

This island and the rocky reef around it shelter the southern end of Tamarindo Bay, allowing boats to be moored in the harbor and making the waves at the southern end of the bay gentle and perfect for small children to swim.

The island provides a place to roost for pelicans and other sea birds, and I am sure the marine live loves the rocky terrain and tidepools.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing nighttime photos of Chicago, featuring the Theater District and the distinctive architecture of Chicago.

It looks like a great place to take my love for a picnic on a warm summer day!

Lovely! Can you get there by boat? I see a lot of rocks around it, which, of course, I would love to explore! :-)

Islands of all sizes are fun to explore. I hope the tourists respect it and leave it as a safe haven for the wildlife.

High tide nearly covers it. I bet it is full of all kinds of wildlife and sea life.

wow, high tide takes over this mound as in low tide, you can sit out there, climb on it, etc.

That little island does many good things for the beach, doesn't it?
