Scenes from a beach walk a few days ago

Nasty jellyfish on the beach. Fortunately we don’t have them very often.

I believe that these are Portuguese Man of War.

On our return we saw the usual turkey vultures but that hawk was a surprising addition to the flock.

The hawk was not welcomed to the feast of the sting ray.  He eventually flew away.

There is a squatter right next to RV2.   RV on the left, another RV under a palapa and about mid shot there is the squatter.  That is his patio to the right of the photo.

Close up.  I have heard that he is somewhat spaced out on ?? and that he is being paid to squat on the land for at least a year.

    There is so much I do not know about Mexico! Why would someone pay HIM to squat on this land? In the history of the US, we had “homesteading,” when someone would stake out boundaries of land for farming, and after about three years, that person could stake a claim for ownership of the land in the Federal Land Office.

    Looks like the shanty the squatter lives in wouldn’t even keep rain off of him.

      It’s complicated and no one here really understands it. Actually his home is much better than others here back in the colonia.

    That bird is a creasted caracara. We see them in FL too.

    Nice to see some familiar sights from the beach and local areas, keep enjoying the sunshine there.

    I agree about the caracara. The small Portuguese Man O War has Very long tentacles. I didn’t give enough space to one while swimming. Feels like a deep paper cut. Took 2 Margaritas to recover from the pain.
