Saturday Morning Beachcombing

Be sure to include beachcombing on your 'to do' list for Holbox.   Each morning, we'd pick a direction and start wandering. 

At low tide, you can walk around this point.  On our way back to town, we followed a path through the property on top the rocks. 

This cottage colony appears to be surrendering to the sea. 

Some beach areas consist of mounds of tiny little shells that crunch under your feet at the tide line.  In other zones the sand is smooth.  We saw lots of starfish at the shoreline, and I picked up some large cockles in one area.

The irony of the A La Playa sign is the waves appear to be lapping the foundation at high tide.

Another structure (a bano) eroded by the tide.
Nets left at the shoreline.

Beach hieroglyphics?
Turnaround point.  The end!

Lovely shots, again! I could live happily for part of the year in one of these adorable tiny cottages -- so long as it didn't drop into the sea!

Thanks Emily! I bet those cottages were really cool until the sea started taking them! It appeared that they're still occupied, but I didn't see anyone.

Oh my gawd, Becky! You walked ten times the distance that we did. Great photos as always. Cheers L&L and The Sparkinator
