A Ride Up the Ambergris Coast…Construction!
I know, I know…the story today FOR SURE is the massive amount of rain and wind we’ve been getting as a tropical depression passed over us this weekend. Rain seems as though it will continue for the next few days but nothing like it Friday-Saturday. Or let’s hope.
My favorite sites to check current and future conditions are:
Belize Hydromet (it’s currently working) – which provides this current picture of what has passed and what’s coming
And Wunderground/Ambergris Caye – also not the prettiest picture.
For some pictures of current conditions, you can check out my Facebook page. This blog is about a boat ride up the coast and the construction. OH MY. Until this weekend…October was a beaut. HOT but sunny.
Since the road going north has become SO much better, I haven’t taken the Coastal Express Water Taxi north in a few months…
One week ago today.
Grand Caribe Resort. Already the largest on the island, they are constructing a new 5 story building on the north side.
And then Coco Beach and the new Venezia. Wow…
We did a drop off at Las Terrazas…
And the old Journey’s End Resort – which is now some sort of youth camp.
A gorgeous day for a boat ride.
My drop off at about 4.5 miles north…
…off for their next stop.
Tomorrow I’ll be headed to Belize City on the 6:30am water taxi (rain and wind included!) for a Social Media event…I’ll be reporting back.
