Scenic Sunday..Costa Maya

From my archives Costa Maya was one of our stops on our western Caribbean cruise. During our visit there we took a shore excursion ( a bus ride 73km west of Costa Maya) to the Chaccoben ruins. The ruins are surrrounded by jungle which is the habitat for various critters such as the howler monkey, fox, deer, armadillo, ocelet and the jaguar. There was a path that took us past three excavated pyramids and different walls and staircases. Settlement by the Maya at the site is estimate at 200 BC and the structures date from 700 AD.

Weekend Reflections

These shots are from my last trip to Ocean City, Md . The pier is reflected nicely on the sand and shoreline. I like this shot because it does not have any snow in it. Sorry, I am really tired of looking at snow.

Watery Wednesday

From my archives, I have some of the animals from the Columbus Zoo. The Polar bears are one of my favorites and then there is the cute sea lion.







I think this guy was hoping someone would throw him a fish.
