The Estuary

I took a walk over to the San Jose del Cabo estuary tonight. 

Today, this marshland oasis is an important habitat for birds, but once upon a time, it was the only reliable source of water in this part of the world. 

The Spanish galleon carrying treasures from the Philippines used to come here for the water, but then the pirates decided that was a pretty good idea, so they came here too. 

Things got complicated.
