Laguna de Tules full of Lirio

We just got back from a 5 day visit to Melaque to visit friends and see how the tourist season was coming along this year. It rained for 3 days just before we got there so was very humid but since it's December, still cool at night. Tourist season is slow with lots of rentals available and trailer parks are not full.

I took an early morning walk along the lagoon and this is the first time in over 5 years I have seen it totally covered with vegetation all the way out to the ocean. Supposedly this is due to not having opened the lagoon during the rainy season - not enough rain !! No wonder I tought it was so hot this year.

I understand that the sewage treatment plant near Jaluco is not working properly and spilling effluent into the lagoon. Lots of fertilizer means lots of plants; lack of oxygen for fish; little food for birds and crocodiles; just generally bad news. So sad.
