120+ Day of Sun: Right on Time, The Clouds Start in Belize

June 1st is the official start of the Hurricane Season.  We tend to see more storminess towards the end of the season – September and October.  But June thru August can bring clouds and after 120 days of SUN SUN SUN…

I know what you are thinking…OH THE HUMANITY…we started to see some clouds and even some…sprinkles.  Mainly in the night or the early morning but ACTUAL water is coming out of the sky.

Alex, Bonnie, Colin done, now Danielle, Earl (that’s a good one!), Fiona, Gaston, Hermine, Ian, Julia, Karl, Lisa, Matthew, Nicole, Otto, Paula, Richard, Shary, Tobias, Virginie and Walter.

Did you know that if we go thru all 21 names – additional names will be used from the Greek alphabet…Alpha, Beta, etc.

The 2005 hurricane season holds the record for the most named storms. It was the most active and destructive season ever, spawning 27 tropical storms including 15 hurricanes and such catastrophic storms as Katrina, Rita and Wilma…

It went thru Zeta, the 6th letter of the Green alphabet.   Yikes.

Here are my pictures and some other gorgeous ones from Instagram over the last few weeks…sun transitioning to clouds and just some other ones that I love.

And the spot where weather doesn’t matter…under the sea.  Manatees are being spotted by Caye Caulker…

How’s this perspective for making a manatee look HUGE!

Well…that’s all I’ve got on a Saturday afternoon.  Clouds…some clouds.  And very little rain.

And I’ll throw in a few extra pictures for good luck.

    too bad that the caye caulker tour guides, who use outboard motors…don’t care enough about the ecology…including manatee….to attach ”prop guards” on their motors, to help protect the marine environment.

    I’ve seen a bit of this planet…and the clouds in belize…any time of the year…are certainly unique .

      the man on the left is a very hard working, decent guy.. named…Carlos Serrano…maybe you’ll get to find out that he’s just a reg. type guy…[covered with ink]…. and a good guy, on your next visit to SP.

      • sanpedroscoop

        He’s super nice but you must admit…EVERYONE see the tattoos first. He knows that…you don’t get facial tattoos…LIP TATTOOS…without being “the tattooed scary guy”.
