Clouds Move In as We Head Into December and A Weekend Preview

Yesterday was a busy afternoon.


[evp_embed_video url=”” loop=”true”]


I was scheduled to take the water taxi from my home (next to Xtan Ha Resort, 7 miles north) to San Pedro town.  Pick up guests for “the camp” – Cayo Frances Farm & Fly.   Meet a boat and take them up to the camp.

So from Yellow arrow to Red arrow and back.

One thing FIRST!  I just bought my very first NEW IPhone – no more hand-me-downs…I TORE OPEN my new golden IPhone 7s and ushered my sluggish IPhone 5 into retirement.

Please excuse all my clumsy videos and graphics but I’m going a little bit crazy with excitement and the power of a modern phone!

I walked out to meet the Coastal Xpress water taxi at Xtan Ha Resort.

Xtan Ha is constructing a new over the water restaurant and bar.   On the left is the old building – this photo taken in 2013.

Much of the dock and all of the palapa-ed bar was washed away by August 2016’s Hurricane Earl.

The replacement is coming…

I went to the end of the dock and waited for the 1:15pm water taxi.

Low clouds hanging over the island – the edge over Central Park.

Four guests arrived and we loaded into a boat and headed north to Cayo Frances.

Up the west side of the island – drop off and back down as the sun was setting.  The trip up taken about 25 minutes.

The Palapa Bar…

I headed back home.  This time by golf cart – passing Croc Sunset Bar north of the bridge.  (Open for less than one month!)

Friday morning, again we are starting with clouds…

…but things are brightening.

As always, for a weekend forecast, I recommend WIndfinder.   Remember that we are in the tropics!  And rainy weather now could be full sun in a few hours or even 15 mins.  Changeable!

Here’s what I have on my calendar for the weekend:
