Yesterday was a busy afternoon.
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.
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:
Please let me know what else is going on!
I’m headed to an Opening Party for Brahma Blue Resort on Saturday evening. I’ll report back!
