Bahia Alacron
Melinda sitting with Mike and Vanessa on their porch at the
Animas Eco-Resort.  They were there for a whale shark
encounter adventure.
The guests stay in individual buildings called Yurts.  
They are wood frame construction with canvas roof and
siding.  It's like a really cool tent.
Each Yurt has it's own bathroom with a head
and solar shower.
From the inside looking out at the porch with
Southern Belle in the background
The main dining/lounge area.  This is an all inclusive resort.  
We joined Mike and Vanessa for happy hour and they served
fresh shucked oysters and bar-b-que oysters (local stuff,
very delicious)

castles way in the background

One day we hiked over the ridge to a remote
little beach
The rock along the beach was this highly
deformed iron-mica schist.  
A couple of anomalies in the iron-mica schist
Were they taking a picture of the ancient
oyster bed, or of the Leatherman?  Hmmmm?
