Bluefields is primarily a water based community. Almost everything comes and goes via water. The boat shown here is at a dock in the heart of town and is registered to the Pto. El Bluff - that is the Port of El Bluff.
El Bluff and its port are just a few miles across Bluefields Bay. The small town sits on a strip of land where the bay and the Caribbean meet. And El Bluff is almost exactly 8 miles south of False Bluff by beach walk. Boats travel between Bluefields and El Bluff regularly...with people and supplies and motorcycles and pets and birthday cakes etc
While this particular boat is waiting to be loaded with people and cargo, it's getting wiped down with a wet cloth by a wet man.
