There are not that many flowering plants that are truly salt tolerant. We are still looking and buying more to add to the garden. Flowering plants that can thrive and bloom near salt spray, not just salt air, are hard to come by. Several plants that had been recommended to us as salt tolerant suffered near the salt spray and had to be moved behind cover vegetation into the salt air zone. The mix of plants in the flower garden are growing nicely and bring in a huge amount of butterflies in all shapes and colors. The video does not capture them all as I was hoping it would.

The head of the canal has also been cleared along the south side. When you reach the end of the canal you now have a much wider view of the beach line. This also helps to bring a bit of the beach breeze down to the pier so its not a muggy while loading and unloading the boats.

To the Beach
Bluefields is a fun town to be based out of. There are a lot of fun things to do and great places to go. Unfortunately the beach is across the bay so you have to boat out to enjoy a good beach day. Totally worth it even on a choppy day!

The canal is about 800 meters long. A portion of the upper canal that had grown in has been cleared. You can see some of the lower section pictured below that will also need to be opened back up.
