Trip to the Sea #12

There is a substantial estuary at Laemsing, with extensive mangroves.

 

It's shallow waters are heavily used for commercial aquaculture of molluscs and shrimp.

 

The best place to view the estuary and its aquaculture is from the long estuary bridge, which is also a popular place for the locals to cool down in the evenings...

C'est intéressant à  voir.
Ray: C'était un endroit intéressant pour voir ce qui se passait à la mer, dans les deux villages de pêcheurs des deux extrémités du pont, Martine.

I saw the bridge in the background of yesterday's pictures. Amazing that you can just stop and enjoy the view. Fabulous pictures again, thanks for showing.
Ray: In the evening lots of locals go up onto the bridge to relax and take a cooling breeze...as you could see in my gallery, Astrid, vendors park up there and offer a variety of drinks and snacks.
A nice set of images, depicting a relaxed, slow way of life. Everyone's blood pressure must be ideal here! (That and a healthy "fruit of the Earth" diet!)
Ray: In addition to the fishing, Elizabeth, this is one of the main tropical fruit growing regions...specialising in durian, mangosteen, lum yai and pineapple.
I like how that wee boat gives a splash of color to the scene, Ray.
Ray: Yes...estuaries tend to be mostly mud-hued, Ginnie.

Love the sheer lack of traffic and the pristine white temple
Ray: It was a very relaxed place, Chris, and none of the traffic that was there seemed in any kind of a hurry.

I like the little rickety pier. I think the first decent puff of wind or a close contact with a boat would seoon have that over.

I see that the police were also enjoying the view from Leasing Bridge, too smile
Ray: Most of the estuary structures are built from bamboo, Alan...cheap and easily replaced when it is time.

Yes...the police were enjoying the breeze, or chatting up the gal.
Un endroit à  découvrir surement car très original
Merci Ray
Ray: J'ai aimé tout sur cette petite place avec sa plage, et ses villages de pêcheurs, Claudine. Il semblait approprié que les gens passent au milieu du pont pour exercer les brises fraîches du soir ... même la police était là-haut.
I'm all for molluscs and shrimps Ray.
Ray: You can take my share, too, Bill, as I cannot eat shrimp, and don't like molluscs.
I like to think of the point where sweet water meets salt water Ray.
Ray: Like the first sip of cold beer, hitting your salty lips after you have been working in the garden in the hot sun for a couple of hours, Chad?
Na is looking back at you like she is rounding up the last of the kids. smile Looks like lots of aquaculture in close to ensure a short commute.
Ray: I think she is watching to see I don't do something silly like get run over by a car as I crouch down in the middle of the bridge to make a picture along the centre line, Mary. I believe the estuary waters are heavily farmed.
Such an interesting place to see. I hope you didn't get booked for parking in the striped off area on the bridge!
Ray: It seems perfectly ok to park on top of the bridge, Brian...there were vendors selling snacks, and even a police car with inhabitants relaxing.

What a difference between the aquaculture waters and the supermodern bridge.
Ray: Yes...that bridge is quite new, and more inclined to function than form.
this is very interesting Ray...
i saw muscle farms in Killary Fjord, Leenane, Co Galway Ireland... they have miles of rows of nets with ropes hanging from them and the muscles attach themselves to the ropes...
they also have several booming salmon farms in the fjord....petersmile
Ray: All part of the attractiveness of this place to me, Peter.

There are a lot of corals, or whatever they are called in aquaculture. I wonder if the water holds enough nutrition for all the delicacies grown here - or are they fed?
Ray: I understand that the estuarine waters are sufficiently rich in nutrients to support the farming, Louis, but supplemental feeding can be used to increase the rate of growth in seasons where the product has a higher price.
Some great shots there, Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Tom. I liked the view from up on that bridge.
