Friday afternoon in Caye Caulker has become an almost regular thing for me. A water taxi ride over, lunch, a walk down to the Split, perhaps a bag of donuts, meet some friends at the Friday afternoon jam session…it’s like a mini-vacation. (Take a look at this prior post: A Proposed Caye Caulker Friday Afternoon Guide.)
And yesterday, while the day started cloudy, by noon it was gorgeous and I hopped aboard the 1pm for the 25 minute boat ride.
As I was exiting the boat, there was quite a commotion going on at the next dock. A large cruise ship tender boat unloading a big crowd and as I got closer…
the street was lined with the Belize Defense Force members in formation.
I took a walk around town which felt surprisingly quiet though there were lots of tourists about. Perhaps for the funeral vendors and a few roads were closed.
This small area was closed because a man was way up in the tree cutting down heavy coconuts.
Down by the Split in the island (here’s the picture from above if you haven’t see Caye Caulker…)
the water is super clear and so many different colors of blue and green. Locals, tourists, dogs…here’s where everyone is!
A HUGE bag of hot sugary donuts. My heart’s fondest wish.
Off to meet friends at the Barrier Reef Sports Bar for a bit of a jam session…
Not the usual HUGE crowd…but still good times.
Sometimes just a couple of hours, a change of scenery, a beautiful day and a bag of donuts is all you need to feel like you are on vacation.
Hello Becky, beautiful pictures as all your photographs are. If you don’t own a boat how do get from one side of the split to the other? Also is there a big expat. population on Caye Caulker? Thank’s , Pete.
Hi. Rebecca please. Sorry…just never identified with the name Becky. To get across the split, you could swim but you need a boat. There is nothing really on the other side…mostly bush/jungle.
