Three King's Day, celebrated in many parts of the world, and right here on Culebra. I hope you left hay under your bed for the camels, or no gifties for you! I'm looking forward to seeing the paso finos later today, one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season here, right up next to lechon.
The Christmas winds seem to have subsided, leaving behind the aroma of churned up waters at low tide. Not the best smell in the world, not the worst, it reminds me of where I grew up, near the Banana River in Florida. Certain times of year the organic matter would overwhelm the tidal cleansiing and the air would be ripe. A small price to pay for living between the ocean and the river...
Yesterday on the way to town, these two birds were getting set up for fishing. They kindly stayed around while I got off a few shots. Thanks, birds!
And now, off to see what is going on in town, beside gas lines. The Three Kings will arrive and pass out presents to the children, the paso finos will be around at some point. The sun is shining the sky is blue and this marks THE END of the holiday celebrations around here. I'm ready.
Have a thorough Thursday! Do something teachable.
