Fresh Seafood

People often ask how the food is in Bluefields.  I explain that the town sits on a bay so if you like seafood its a good place to visit.  

Most people are skeptical though when you tell them that fishermen walk around selling freshly caught shrimp right out of the bucket.  Can't get much better unless you are the one pulling the net into the boat.

Creeping ficus

     Ficus pumila in Virginia is sold at greenhouses for mostly indoor use. I have some in my home there.  However, in Bluefields near False Bluff this ficus shows its full potential. This is a picture of a building which houses a small hair salon....covered with ficus and trimmed only as needed!
