A Trip to The Dentist Means a Trip North
But all was perfectly fine. Joan did the cleaning, a few X-Rays and I left with a clean, cavity-free bill of health and a dentistry goodie bag. Phew. Must remember to do that more often.
I had about an hour before my next water taxi so I wandered south a bit. I passed Coco Beach. They have a nice bar if you want to stop. And the beers are $6bzd…relatively cheap for “up north”.
The price of beer (average $5bzd in town) is definitely a factor for me…whether I like a bar or will stay away.
One of my favorite spots next – Essene Way. I wrote a post about this FASCINATING plot of land with all of its funky statues a while ago.
Lots of dead, topless coconut trees.
I stopped at Captain Morgan’s resort for a beer and a quick sandwich. Walking on the beach mid-day was getting VERY hot. Beers almost $8bzd. Hmmmm…noted. The resort seems quite full to me but the bartender let me know that about 1/4 of the rooms were occupied. And that, when totally full, they can house up tot 300 people! I had no idea Captain Morgan’s was so big.
Time to wait for the 1:45pm Coastal Express water taxi back to town.
The garbage truck doesn’t go that far north so the slow moving garbage boat was making a trip to town.
Back at the dock with my clean set of choppers. Something not quite right here…
Let me get back to Facebook and Twitter so I can keep tracking John McAfee. Fascinating!
There are quite a few members of the international press here now and more coming. Hopefully the fact that this island is awesome and this is FAR from the norm shines through.
