Grotto on the Ecuador Coast
Outside of Puerto Lopez, Ecuador is a national park which has some hiking trails and three different beaches with beautiful sand, smooth stones and millions of little crabs. My niece donned one beach as ‘crab beach’ and it is the only name I have for the special place. The little waddlers were too fast and too camouflaged for me get on my camera, so I settled for the steady stillness of these rocks. The photo fades to darkness, but what was so magical was that you crawl quiet a ways into this little cave/ enclave / grotto or whatever fancy word sounds best to you.
