Each year – about this time, the weather abruptly shifts. We go from BLAZING HOT and humid to the first cold front of the year. Just a shift in wind and a few degrees drop in temperature and those who live here get out sweatshirts and thick socks and confound all the tourists.
I walked the dogs in a full sweat suit the other day – right past a bunch of visitors sunning in their bikinis.
Monday, breeze from the west, bright sun, temps in the low 80s
Monday night was looking beautiful…
But the next morning…the cold winds were starting to blow. And suddenly it was in the mid-70s with a brisk northerly wind.
Kids were wearing quilted winter jackets – those driving golf carts? Wool hats and I even saw a set of ear muffs.
Here are some snap shots from Ambergris Caye and Belize City – many of which I share on Facebook but…and GET THIS…some of you don’t have Facebook!
SO here they are.
The old Palapa Bar in Tres Cocos area – about 1.5 miles north of town. A new owner and a facelift.
Cayo Frances Farm & Fly – getting our first guests after over one month off.
Cold weather lunch back in San Pedro – Chilmole or “Black Dinna”
In case you are wondering the weather today – the wind is starting to shift back to normal but it’s still chilly!
It’s 81 and I’m wearing a sweatshirt.
