The temperature and the calendar are both telling me it's that time of year again and that means Summer Time. In Puerto Vallarta there are two seasons: the "coolish" dry months of winter from approximately November until April which is locally referred to as the "high season" when most visitors arrive and the "hot" wet months of summer beginning after the Easter celebrations sometime in April and continuing until the end of October. This period is called the "low season" as most people prefer the cooler dry months of winter.
We love it all year, but the "low season" of summer is especially dear to us. With our proximity to a beautiful beach on the glorious Bay of Banderas, we have the opportunity of cooling off whenever we want by simply diving into the ocean. Even though we are fortunate enough to live on an incredible beach with fantastic snorkeling opportunities, we never tire of it. Each day offers a different aquatic experience which makes it not only fun, but interesting.
In biology, any group of fish that stay together for social reasons are shoaling, and if the group is swimming in the same direction in a coordinated manner, they are schooling. Fish derive many benefits from shoaling behavior including defense against predators, enhanced foraging success, and higher success in finding a mate. Wow! Did you know all that?
I have created an album which includes some of my favorite photographs of our beach life not only in Puerto Vallarta, but other locations as well. I hope you enjoy this summer time album. I have certainly had a fun time putting it together. Below the following photos you will find the link for my blog photo album.
