The countdown is officially on. My Canon G10 camera – misplaced over a week ago – is OFFICIALLY lost. I combed the town, from frequent hang outs to pawn shops, and it’s gone. GONE. Crushing.
Yesterday, after much diddling about, I ordered a new camera from Amazon. I waffled for days between the Canon G16, SX50 (heavy but TONS of zoom), the fancy S120 and its touch screen focusing and the SX700. Zoom and easy portablility. The SX700 is on her way to Florida now.
I can’t wait. Until April 29th, the photos will be IPhone 4S. Here is a look at some of what I saw yesterday.
Up in the Boca Del Rio area (north of town), my Crossfit gym is building a new box. (Box = gym in CrossTalk.) Right on the beach…larger open space. This is going to be good. The cement slab has been poured and set and yesterday, the walls started going up.
Later, around lunchtime, I took the beach back into town for errands galore (including dreaded trips to not just one BUT two local banks). Not a bad day for a stroll.
At Caribbean Villas dock (about 3/4 of a mile south of town…maybe less.)
The dock at the Belize Yacht Club. I spent about half of my first year on the island laying on this dock.
Northward to the Bowen/Belikin dock.
The sign at The Belize Chocolate Company drew me in…
I stopped in to Graniel’s wood shop to see what’s new and admired this fish. Love the rough wood stand. The price was around $80bzd. I’ve said it before but I love this store…
This is not something that you eat every day…
