beached whales

La Playa / Santa Marta, Colombia
Like beached whales, these well-worn fishing boats lie in the sand on the beachfront waiting to be rescued and put back into the water. On the northern coast, Santa Marta is an important maritime center for Colombia and at one time commercial fishing was its mainstay. It is now primarily known for its beaches including Tayrona National Marine Park, an ecotourism destination.
