Early morning on the beach
We arrived in Costa Rica in the middle of the night and it was surprising to arise the next morning and find out that we were deep in a dry desert. During the dry season, there is practically no rain on the northwest coast of the country. Most of the trees lose their leaves and the ground is very dry, the grass has turned brown and the shrubs are mostly desiccated. Of course, I felt quite at home in the desert was happy to see the cactus and other desert plants. The image above shows a portion of the beach and between high and low tides. During low tide, many more rocks are visible. During high tide the beach where I am standing to take the pictures is underwater.
