Washington Park I

As we began our tour through Washington Park, one of the first stops was at Playa Chikitu. The waves were really rolling in that day. Back in the late 70's, when I worked nights, I used to body surf here twice a week. It was great, but one had to know what one was doing, because of the power of the waves and the weird currents and rips generated in this small inlet.

The park strongly recommends that one not go swimming here, and I agree. You could be in serious trouble before you even knew what hit you.

There seemed to be a lot more sand on the beach and behind the beach than there has been at some times in the past. It was really beautiful, and of course, we had it all to ourselves.
