Let’s Check in with the Major Lagoon Rejuvenation Project in San Pedro
While getting some work done at “The Office” earlier in the week, I got a good view of the lagoon side of San Pedro Town and realized that I haven’t walked back there in a while. It looked like quite a bit has been built as part of the major San Pedro Sunset Boardwalk and Water Taxi terminal project. Okay…it’s a bit hard to see from here…
It just took me about 15 minutes to do that hi-tech design work (pasting those arrows on those photos)…I hope they are appreciated.
Still not clear? You are right…time to take a closer look.
For those who don’t know about this endeavor, it is a $5+ million project (yes, you read that right) to build a fisherman’s promenade and sunset boardwalk, a water taxi terminal and to overhaul the soccer field that has been in bad shape for years. Here is a picture of the building plans posted at the site.
Very ambitious since there is very little there right now. It is projected to take about a year and a half to complete. Ground broke on June 26, 2012.
I thought I’d stop for brunch at the small food stand that has been opened on the building site for the workers.
6 breakfast tacos for $2bzd…I challenge you to find a cheaper tasty meal anywhere else.
There is still quite a bit more to do. The sunset on Ambergris Caye is amazing…and a fairly underutilized resource. There are only a handful of establishments where you can watch it set over the lagoon…
Take a look at this picture of the sunset from the Barrel Bar.
Let’s hope for the best with this project.
