I would call this a newsletter but the word “news” implies weight and importance…and this post has neither. It’s just out and about in San Pedro.
Lunch At Estel’s Dine By the Sea
The week has started out a bit hazy and a lot HOT. Perfect weather for a meal with a breeze or just dunking yourself in the water.
I had ceviche and one delicious burger at Estel’s. It’s not ALWAYS breakfast at Estels – but it is always an option. They are open from 6am to 4pm.
The burger was delicious…and eaten too quickly for me to take a photo. As were the beef brisket tacos…all great. Take my word for it.
I took a quick photo of this man chopping coconuts for water while waiting for my food.
By mid-day, most of the haze burns off…and since Monday was a holiday, plenty of kids were in the water.
“Coconutz” Exhibit at the San Pedro House of Culture
Yesterday I stopped into the House of Culture on Back Street, San Pedro to check out a new exhibit. The history of Ambergris Caye is very much about coconuts. The island spent many years as a coconut plantation.
Today, they are used for coconut water, oil (I just met someone yesterday who is cold pressing oil on the island – I’ll have to get you more info), art and souvenirs.
Here’s a bit of what is on display at the House of Culture.
Love this scarlet macaw wall hanging.
Stop in…they have lots more art and some history of the island. Two things I love.
I also LOVE new products and I received a pretty exciting one in the post that I am dying to try out.
