The Gates of Isla

No, I'm not talking about rumors of Bill and the Microsoft millionaire's yacht on Isla! On my last few trips to Isla, I've begun to notice the distinct gates on the island. I love the rustic ones, but there are also some very artistic gates on the island. Here are a few of my favorites.

You can see the blue Caribe through the windows in this wooden gate on Juarez.

I loved the old wooden gates on the cemetery and was sorry to see them replaced.

I noticed this rustic wooden spool colonia gate on our trip in May. It has a lot of character!

This gate is so charming. The owner offers spa services on Juarez.

This older rustic blue gate is on the south end. I've always wondered what's back there?

This colonia gate allows a peek to the casa within.

This beautiful artistic gate secures a house in the Punta Sur area.

These little poodles guard this modest picket colonia gate.

This large wooden paned gate allows a peek to the yellow casa within.

Love this artistic colonia gate and the moto completes the look!

The colorful La Rinconada gate.

Rustic iron colonia gate.

Gate to Mundaca Zoo.

Rustic wooden gate in Playa Lancheros area.

New rustic wooden gate to estate next to Mar y Sol. Not sure what this property is, but they built a huge dock in May!

I love the gate pics! The one of the waves and bubbles on the South End is one of my things that I always slow down for and gaze at. Thanks for a nice trip around the island!

Funny how I know each gate you picture but have never really looked at them before. Thanks for stopping and making me do that. I enjoyed it.

Thanks Moonie and Gringo! I wish I'd taken pictures of more of them. Next time! :)

Who would ever think to take pictures of something as simple as a gate? You have a eye for the unusual. That is what makes your photography, so interesting.
