Another SWF>>Curacao

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday!


 We visited this beach before heading back to our hotel for dinner and the sunset. The weather and sky were just perfect the whole week. When we first arrived at the beach we noticed these cute Parakeets making their way around the tree tops.

I am not sure if these were the Brown-throated Parakeets or if they are called Conures. The yellow head and green back with the blue splash of color on its wings look like the Brown-Throated Parakeets I have seen pictured.



At the beach I watched this Tropical Mockingbird, it did not see to mind posing for me.

While hubby and I were on vacation we watched most of the sunsets from our hotel. We could sit at the outside restaurant for our dinner or have a drink while watching the sky. It was very relaxing.


Back at our hotel we enjoyed watching this colorful sunset.

Above the sunset is sinking into the ocean behind the resorts massage tent.





To see more beautiful skies from around the world please visit: Skywatch Friday.  Thanks to the hosting team of Sylvia, Sandy and Wren.
Also, thank you for stopping by to see my skies. Happy Skywatching and have a great weekend!

Hi there - the mocking bird is great, but the sunsets are very, very good. Nice to watch the sun sink into the ocean.

I was pleased with the pictures of the Frogmouth - it was sat close enough to a street light to make things a little easier than shooting in the full dark!

Oh my...your sunset shot is gorgeous. At first I thought you had gone to Egypt when I first opened up the page because I saw the tent part sticking up. The mockingbirds that I've been seeing around the different parts of the world are very interesting. Cool birds!
