If I had to look back through all the photos I’ve taken this year, it would take hours, so I’ve chosen to present four of my favorites from this month. Help me decide which one to cut, please. This prompt limits me to three. I’m decisioned out so I’m relying on you to help me pick the best three.

I saw this guy inspecting the water from the malecon at the very beginning of my walk.
Oops. Not a water dish, Kukla!!!
Due to extrememly high water levels, the banks were verdant
Boats were nestled in among the water hyacinth.
He told me to sit very still and showed me how to adjust my balance a bit when the water got choppy.
The water ran swift and free,
Finally, the gorgeous turquoise waters of Big Spring and Little Spring, which together bubble out of the rocks to join to the Current River.

Please click on photos to enlarge. This little cutie is worth it, and her table (er chair) manners are impeccable! I caught her during her lunch break at the Mini-Maestros del Arte market at the Lake Chapala Society earlier this week.

For Cee’s CBWC Challenge: Looking through or into a window.
Like the slide 14 years ago, I was up all night last night. There was some presentiment, perhaps, as I heard the huge clap of thunder at 3:32 a.m. this morning and heard the deluge of rain, I was reminded of similar happenings 14 years ago when the last devastating landslde had occurred. I remained awake until 5 and the rain never stopped, finally turned off my light and fell asleep and slept until Paciano called me at 7 and said another tromba (waterspout) had occurred and that there was much damage down the two main roads of the Raquet Club. I got up and this is what I discovered: (Click on photos to enlarge photos and read captions.)
This huge waterfall is still thundering down the mountainside–one of three created by the recent rains.t
This is a huge camote that washed down the arroyo. Patti will wash the mud off and cook it for dinner.
Jawbone of a beast..part of the detritus washed down in the deluge.
More detritus..a big chunk of petrified wood.
This huge boulder is the newest addition to the road at the end of my block.
Digging out my neighbor’s entrance
A security truck also relocated by the water.
