In contrast to yesterday's photo of new coconuts hanging from a tree, today I am showing a photo of an old coconut that had washed up on the beach. I don't know how this broke open. It looks like someone may have cut it open. It provides a good cross section of the anatomy of a coconut. A little crab is enjoying the fibers.
It won't happen to this coconut, but some coconuts that wash up on the beach can sprout a stalk from the coconut that can take root and turn into a tree.
This week we have photos of Angkor Wat and other nearby temples of Siem Reap, Cambodia, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
