Chelem

A few weeks ago I sat on the beach in the small fishing village of Chelem, just West of Progreso, for about a half hour watching this pelican fish. It would skim the water, spy a fish, dive, and come up with a snack.

The beach in Chelem is apparently eroding, as tubes, composed of some sort of heavy synthetic material, have been filled with sand and placed on the beach. I think they might be referred to as “geo tubes” and are used also on East coast beaches of the U. S. You can see the tubes at the water line in the picture of the fisherman.
