Flamingoes and Curacao Blue

a relaxing day

sunny 28 °C

There is a lake in the golf course at the Blue Bay resort which has an assortment of water birds including pelicans and flamingoes. Chris took a few photos and today we all set off to find some flamingoes in the wild, in their natural setting.

We headed north to the natural reserve

We had a wee walk along a path, the flamingoes were far off in the distance (top left in photo)

Chris and a few others walked back and took a second path which got them closer to the birds

It was hot in the sun and we still had not visited a Landhuis (country house) so we decided to go to Landhuis Chobolobo where we learnt a bit about the history of the Curacao Blue Licqueur.

The licqueur is made from the lahara orange

There are more clolurs / flavours than just the original blue. We were offered three flavours to taste - the blue, tamarind - orange, and the chocolate - brown in colour.
