SWF>>>>Curacao

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday


These shots are of the sunset during our recent vacation to Curacao. We vacationed at a Curacao beach resort, the weather all week was sunny and hot. Hubby enjoyed the snorkeling and I enjoyed seeing new birds and watching the sunsets.

Above is a view of the beach and resort, our home for the week.





Above is a Bananaquit with a pretty blue sky for a background. Sounds like a weird name for a bird, it is a little bird maybe the size of our Red-breasted Nuthatch. I love the pretty yellow chest, we must have seen thousands of these birds all week long. They make this loud smooching sound, it sounds like they are throwing loud kisses all the time. LOL!

Thanks to the hosting group of Skywatch: Sylvia, Sandy and Wren. Thank you also for stopping by to see my skies. I hope everyone has a safe and HAPPY weekend. Enjoy your skywatching!!!!

  3. Would you believe we had another day of 75 degrees here in Göteborg. My wife and I took a walk in the woods yesterday, we decided it was a good idea to post Swedish Pics.

    I still like getting out of here and going towrds more tropical climes-

    I love those beach scene with the samd. We don't really have beaches here, or at least any with sand. It's all rocks and slimy seaweed. Yuck!

    Glad you had a nice time.

  27. Amazing sunset shots! And the sun is so huge!

    Bananaquit is such a pretty name for this yellow breasted bird, resembles the color of banana!

    P.S. No, we did not camp at Joshua Tree, we went home after the sunset and it was a long drive home.
