Life Through The Lens – Part II – April 17 Image

This morning I headed to the Xaman Ha Aviary, which was barely a 5 minute taxi ride from our resort. Not knowing what to expect I was quite surprised and happy to see a very good variety of birds. We saw Brown Pelicans, White-Fronted Parrots, Blue Crowned Parrot, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Pink Flamingos, Scarlet Macaws and this guy, a very photogenic Keel Billed Toucan.

This morning I walked a few hundred meters from my resort to a building I had noticed on the drive in. I am not sure what this building is or was, but it had some very interesting carvings, doorways and other parts to it. In some ways a part of it looks to be under renovation but it was hard to tell.

Today we visited the ruins at Tulum. Tulum is a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city. It is one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas. It was fully inhabited between the 13th and 15th centuries. It was very busy and very hot today. The image below is of the main temple.

This afternoon I dropped by La Salle Park. It was very windy and the waves were crashing up along the rocks. The birds that were flying were just letting the wind carry them..oh to be so free! This duck was not having to work to hard!

This evening after dinner I was sitting outside on my back deck enjoying the last few minutes before the sun went down. My one cat, Orion was peeved because he could not come outside and he was showing his displeasure. This was taken through the glass doors.

Today I met my wife for lunch at the Two Cougars and a Cafe restaurant, down in the industrial section of Hamilton. The food was good and the restaurant has a smattering of antiques and memorabilia on the walls. One such antique was this old radio I saw sitting on a shelf high up. I wonder how many songs this old beauty has played? :)
