Coral, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

I've never been particularly fond of flat, jagged, rocky coastlines  - although they do offer striking visual drama.

Upon closer inspection here, it turns out  that the rocky parts of coastline are coral rather than regular "rocks" like you might find on the northeast United States coastline.


There are many different fascinating types and shapes. This one looks likes misshapen sliced kiwi fruit.

They even use coral embedded in concrete as artistic spacers between the concrete sidewalk panels.


I  have a new-found appreciation for the beauty of coral coastlines.  I'd still rather have a long flat sandy beach on which to walk but, coral now has its own special appeal, too.
