I must admit that I am a bit possessive about the view from our front doors on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua. When our double doors swing open early in the morning, we encounter unique and wondrous sights throughout the day. What is mine, is yours as I share our wondrous views from morning to night. Enjoy!
The Che Ferry chugs past our front doors early in the morning.
El Ferry is the umbilical cord of the island, transporting people, materials, and vehicles back and forth.
During the rainy season, we are treated to rainbows.
Sometimes, whole islands float by our front doors. This is called a gamolote. It is about the size of a football field.
A variety of birds search for food near sunset along our shoreline.
The sunset plays and dances with the clouds on the mainland.
A sunburst of sunset.
The Che makes its last trip to the mainland for the day.
Will there be a green flash tonight?
The moon sets over the lake in the wee hours of the morning.
But, wait there is more! Wait until you see our view from our back door.
Active volcano Concepcion peeks through the trees behind our garden.
As we close the doors, and snuggle under our mosquito net to dream of tomorrow’s sights, I close with “Good Night Moon” over volcano Concepcion.
Good night super luna.
