Things I Saw Yesterday: A Beautiful Day

For all of you who like the bar and late night scene of San Pedro, I apologize.  I hope that many of my posts over the next few weeks will be similar to this one.  Good old fashioned walks on the beach.  My best friend has arrived for the summer and we, AGAIN, have devoted ourselves to fitness and clean living.  Well…at least for as long as it lasts.  Some summers we do well and some we don’t.Wish me luck.

Until I’m back in my normal state, here is what I saw yesterday.

This crab was not happy to see me.  Does anyone know what is beneath her?  Eggs?  Or is that what a land crab usually looks like?

Xanadu is doing some sort of construction with this gorgeous piece of timber.  I would estimate that it is 4 feet in diamater.

The construction guys insisted that it will be a bench…but a bench for 10 foot tall individuals?  I’ll have to wait and see.

Down close to the Belize Yacht Club, a new spa is doing massages out on this long pier.

Here are some pictures of my walk south in the morning.  It really was a gorgeous day.  Hot and sunny but with a nice cool breeze off the ocean.  I’m guessing we only have a few more weeks until the breeze disappears.  But, knock on wood, the hurricane season has been fairly kind to the Atlantic so far.

Have a great day.

What was I blogging about one year ago today?  My Favorite Meal in San Pedro.  I wish I was eating this right now.

  • Definitely eggs and she was probably not happy to see you as she was on her way to release them!

    Keep all these beautiful photos coming. I might be able to swing it that Marcia lets me finish this place up, flog it and move to Belize. What are the connections between Belize and Cuba like? There is a direct flight between Cuba and Angola every week so it would be very convenient to route through Havana…

  • Me

    There is definitely a Cuba to Cancun (or Mexico City)flight. But, as an American, I really don’t have much of a clue. Cuba is blocked, blocked, blocked on all the sites I use. Direct flight from Cuba to Angola? That’s strange to me. Why?

  • The direct link was established in 1975 when, after independence, the Good ol’ US of A decided that Angola was not allowed to be Socialist so executed a proxy war here by supporting a bunch of homicidal thugs to destabilise and destroy the country. The Soviets stepped in to support the legitimate government (obviously one of their own flavour) and we enjoyed 27 years of brutal civil war as a result. The Cubans pitched in and supplied troops and equipment to help throw the Imperialist Fascist Bastards out and I played my very own small part in that.

    It may only be Antigo Combatentes, old comrades in arms, but that is why there is a direct flight between Havana and Luanda every week.

    It was your President Clinton that stopped the insanity by the way. He pulled the plug in 1997 and the war finally petered out with the death of Savimbi in 2002.

    But all that is behind us and I am more concerned that Saul has not replied to my email asking him about Xanuntanitch hand rolled cigars…
