Samana, Dominican Republic

Quiet cove, but not all is well. Do you see any evidence of landscape change? Beach erosion, perhaps? Look at the palms at water's edge. They're not so perpendicular any more. You might be surprised they're alive at all until you remember that coconut palms thrive on salty soils. Notice that nothing else does. [1992]

  1. Like always, I love all the pictures, but this one is really neat. I especially love handcrafted boats, and can't help but wonder if the lumber to build them was found locally or imported?
