Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

Location: Punta Gorda, Belize

It was such a beautiful morning. Most of the residents in this coastal town were still asleep. There was hardly any activity going on. I wondered what was keeping them in bed. Didn’t Emily Bronte once said that the best time of the day was over by 10 a.m? Then again, I had to remind myself I was a tourist. I wasn’t supposed to judge.

As I walked around, I saw the remains of what looked like a crab. At the height of the thunderstorm the previous night, it must have tried to cross the street to find a safer place to hide. Sadly, it failed and was crushed by a passing motorist instead.

It was a risk worth taking even though it ended in tragedy. For sure, it was much better than ending in a cooking pot somewhere. I thought it deserved to be remembered for posterity. Hurriedly, I took its picture before I got run over myself.
