on de beach
Las Cuevas has no wikipedia entry and as such qualifies for some sort of dedicated and detailed entry here. It’s a bit beyond Maracas Beach on the road, maybe 20 minutes or so of driving. It’s not a tourist beach like Maracas, this beach is mostly Trinis (locals.) There’s one shop to buy drinks – but it’s weird – you can buy beer, but not juice or water. So the locals like to “lime” here, which means to to “hang out,” or to “chill,” in Canadian.

The waves are far smaller at this beach – 3 feet tops, and very sandy beach, so walking with a camera in hand is not a big deal.
not much fishing going on, it was time to lime
this mound of grass reminded me of a very old game named Drol
where you had to occasionally escape these weird moving grass mounds which chased you around in the higher levels.
these d00ds really wanted their photo taken
some sort of fish that had decided to sleep too long on the beach
the edge of the land looked like this
vultures – there are more of them in the distance. a lot of them.
it was rainy season in Trinidad while we were there, so the rain came down for 5 minutes and created cool patterns in the sand.
Las Cuevas means “the caves” in Spanish. I looked in a cave and this dog was hanging out in it, not really interested in moving or saying hello.

Trinis are very friendly and conversational. This one talked to me for a while before rejoining some friends for some soccer.
