These are two happy coconut palms in our backyard. They are soon to have their very dangerous coconuts removed so that nobody gets a nasty knock on the head from one.
This one unhappy coconut palm is also in our backyard. It will soon be cut down since it was HIT BY LIGHTNING (!) a few nights ago. We are pretty sure it was hit by the same strike that hit our pool (or looked like it hit our pool -- I'm still not positive what I saw other than a very orange explosion just above the surface of the pool).
A shot of our backyard from the back door (the door through which the feisty neighborhood crabs enter).
And, the back of our lovely casita.
Neighborhood photos to come.
