Boats in Puerto Lopez #AtoZChallenge




Boats help support many families. Fishermen are at sea for one to several nights. 



Daily tour boats take people whale watching, island hiking, snorkeling, and diving.

  2. Hi Emily. Sorry I missed your A. I have family visiting for Easter break, so it's a bit hectic.
    First of all, I really like your new blog name. It's perfect.
    And secondly, that's an awesome shot.

  4. I have enough trouble locating my car in a car park - I wouldn't stand a chance of finding my boat among that lot!

    1. Ha ha! Almost every boat is blue and white, adding to the difficulties.

  5. The boats look like a school of fish in the water.

    1. It was an incredible flight, Hilary. Over much too quickly but I enjoyed every moment, seeing the coastline like I never had before.

  7. Felt as if the boats are congregating for discussion on some important topic!
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. What a great view! Looks like a very active boating community there in Puerto Lopez.... Heidi at, A Little of This & That

    1. Yes, fishing is the primary industry in town so every fishing family owns or works on a boat. There are not too many individually owned pleasure crafts but there are quite a few tour boats. Thanks Heidi!

  10. That's a great shot, Emily. I initially thought it was a drone, but then the top left corner gave it away. The boats look like fish that have come to feed.

    1. Thank you Varad. I wanted some indication in the shot that showed it was not a drone and that worked well. The boats do look like feeding fish! LOL!

  14. Wow, that is one beautiful shot! I love boats. I don't know how to drive them (is that even the right word? Drive?) but I just love being on them.

    1. Thanks Miss Andi! I am in the same boat, so to speak. I love being on them but don't know how to drive (operate?) them either.

  15. That's a lot of boats. I get nervous about being on a boat, but that's just my fear of open water I guess. When we went to Ecuador we took a nice boat ride on Lake Cuicocha. I was nervous at first, but then I became very relaxing after a while.

    1. It is a lot of boats! Going out on a lake was probably smarter for you than out on the ocean. Next time, you could give the ocean a try. My mom is nervous on boats, too, but she went out with me. We had on life jackets the whole time. Without those, I doubt she would have enjoyed it (or even gone).
