Melaque Wild and Plant life

We just had the first rain of the year - just enough to turn the dust on my car into mud. Still it was quite exciting and means the rains will soon be here.

There is lots of wildlife around the lagoon and we are constantly entertained by it. This green Iguana lives on/in the wall next door - one of the first green ones I've seen. There are actually more of the gray kind here.

Tons of birds (hope to get a few fotos), Caiman (cocodrillos), squirrels, fireflies (truly amazing), mosquitoes, ants and flies are coming into season. I've assured Denis that the Gekos don't grow into Iguanas and then into Crocodiles ... but we haven't seen proof yet.

Both fotos (above and below) of blossoms above are on a Tamarind tree (I was corrected and the tree is a Poinciana - Tabachin or Framboyan in Spanish. It's in the Tamarind family and is supposed to bloom just before the hot season.)


Bananas that are not getting sweet before they go bad. Any ideas?

Congradulations on your adventure. I am so envious. I wish i could be there in Barra.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
