2 Fisherman

By
Real Estate Agent

Costa del Sol is only a country block from the beach and leaves no excuse for not getting that much needed exercise by walking on the beach.  On this morning we had loaded up the doggies on the golf cart and took the scenic drive down to enjoy the nice cool breeze off the water and put our toes in the sand!  It is not unusual to see the local Ticos fishing at the beach.  Today we ran into two very unique fishermen!  One was a young Tico fishing with a net!   It was so interesting to watch him throw it out and drag it back in.  What was even more interesting was to see it filled with fish!


He was very happy to have his picture taken with his catch of the day even though he did appear to be very shy.  His bucket was almost full and I am sure that his family will be very happy to enjoy some wonderful fresh fish for dinner tonight!

 

The second fisherman was not a man at all but what appeared to be a hawk!   He only caught one fish but seemed to be enjoying his feast.  I don't think he was interested in sharing with anyone and when he was done perched up on top of a beautiful piece of driftwood with the proud pose of a great hunter after catching his prey.  I felt like I should offer him a toothpick!

The beauty and interesting things you find in Playa Bejuco compel you to come back for more as you never know each day what or who  you might meet along the way.
 
I am thinking that fresh fish sounds yummy for dinner.....maybe I should go to the ferretaria and purchase a net for fishing!  Who knows I might even pull in a crab or two for an appetizer!
 

 

Why don't you join us at Playa Bejuco for a relaxing day at the beach and some fishing? 

 

My friend Nick Pappas Re/Max Madison Alabama is a bird enthusiast and matched Fisherman #2 to the

Crested Caracara!

Looks like a good match to me!  What do you think?

Lucky you! What a wonderful place to live! We are lucky if we get to visit a lake once in a while.

The photos are just too wonderful. Glad I caught you in the rain!

Very nice, Debbie!  I was wondering were the second fisherman was.  Didn't expect the ending!  Nice shots!

Donna - Yes it is a beautiful place....but only a vacation home for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Bruce - I did not expect to see it either!  It was one of those "Kodak moments". Thank you so much!

Nick - Hello my Alabama friend! And a bird lover to boot! Wish I could help you more.....sea eagle sounds pretty good.  I need to find me a book about the birds here in Costa Rica.

Hey Debbie, I think I found out what the bird is.  I have a copy of Stokes Field Guide to Birds,  and in it I found a bird that matches your bird above, it's a Crested Caracara.  Just thought you might like to know.
