The next morning we returned armed with buggy boards, sandwiches, cameras and swimsuits, no less excited. We found a semi shaded spot close to the vegetation above the sand. From inside the bushes we were watched:
I also saw these great red beetles.
In the trees I saw enormous nests of some kind.

One came first, soon to be joined by three more. Other bird species came and went, following the example of the pelicans, seemingly a good opportunity for fishing. The pelicans went searching and diving numerous times:
And rested on the waves in between.
We also took a few drives over the island.
The landscape is different from the lush humid greenery of the main island. Here on Culebra it's almost desert climate. The ocean wind keeps trees from growing tall. Narrow winding roads cross the island and you never know what will reveal itself when you turn a corner.
