Mangrove roots at low tide

Here is a section of a thicket of mangrove roots in the upper reaches of Tamarindo Estuary. You can see why mangrove forests are good for the environment, as they provide habitat for land and water critters and hold back the soil to prevent erosion.

Some fish like to hang out in the midst of the roots to be protected from larger fish, similar to the way some fish like to hide in coral reefs for protection from predators.

The tide looks like the water rises and falls about one meter, based on the height of these mangrove roots that are exposed at low tide.

This week we are showing photos of Dubrovnik on the coast of Croatia on Viva la Voyage, our travel photo site.

Ps. I've been travelling back to Mn. the past few days without ready access to the internet; therefore I haven't been commenting very much. I'm still posting from Santa fe since I scheduled it before we left. Hope to be back soon!
