The Dog Days Of Summer? Lizard Parts and Empty Pools

Summer and the slower season have definitely arrived in Belize.  Here on the island, it’s hotter, the chances of rain have increased (particularly at night) and the kids are out from school.  Many of them hit the beach yesterday.

We are also between the big festivals.  Mid to late June brings the Lobsterfest all over the country and the first weekend in August, the International Costa Maya to San Pedro.

My cat has no problem amusing herself. I know this is cruel of me…but it is what she does outside!  She collects lizard tail.  This is yesterday afternoon’s harvest.

That’s her “don’t mess with my tails” look.  Did you know that the tail kicks around for a full minute after removal?  Gross…I know.  I don’t encourage it.  But a cat has a one track mind.

Many properties use this summer/fall season to do a bit of maintenance work.  Royal Palms (the condo community where I reside) drained their pool this week and is giving it a good scrub.

Note to residents:  No late night swims after a few drinks until the weekend!

But fear not, if you are visiting, there is still PLENTY going on.  Not exactly dog days.   Businesses are in full swing.  If a business closes (and not many do anymore), it is not until September or October.

Belikin has even released a new citrusy, light Verano Belikin for these very dog days.  I’ll let you know when I get my hands on it!

And for me?  My best friend, Jamie, arrives tomorrow for 7 full weeks.  Good.  Times.
