More Scenes from Curacao

Linking up with Scenic Sundays

This is just a quick post...I have some more scenes from the lovely island of Curacao. On this day we were on our way to a snorkeling and catamaran boat trip.


I loved the seeing the colorful buildings during our sightseeing of the island. This was a pretty church in Williamstad, Curacao.

I always loved the houses with balconies and french doors.




The sails go up on the catamaran.


One of the spots for snorkeling was a sunken tugboat. The large ferry is no longer being used is tied up and abandoned. Hopefully, someday they will find a good use for this ferry.


A few jet skiers came by as our catamaran was heading out. The resort beach on the left side was the Hyatt resort located kind of far from the city of Williamstad.

A different watersport we saw were the windsurfing boards. 


Hubby and some others from our tour snorkeling near the sunken tugboat. Except for feeling a little seasick, it was a great tour with lovely views of the island and water.

  14. Thamks for your comment. How wonderful that you went to Curacao. It is amazing that it is still a Dutch colony though politically independent.Due to an economic slump in recent years, emigration to the Netherlands has been high.This is not conductive to good relationship between both countries
    Still I think our queen is very popular overthere.

  39. I always love seeing photos from tropical places. I love the water and the colors are always so much brighter and cheery then what I see in the midwest.

    I've said this before but I am thankful to have tour guides like you to show me the world.
