Lagoon


Above photo and a few more here were taken towards the lagoon side of Panama Beach (pronounced as paːnəmə). This place is unique as you will see the sea from the East, lagoon from the North, sand dunes from the South and the village from the West.

Thanks :)

Chavie,
Really! So what was the game about? ..'Get on the boat, row to the island at the centre of the lagoon,.. save the princess and go to the sea shore on the opposite side of the lagoon.. where the ship is waiting..' :D

Chavie said...

K - Yep, pretty much, but with loads of added knights, archers and siege machines! lol ;)

Kirigalpoththa said...

Chavie,
oh yes I forgot the most important people - the enemy :)
