Last week was…crazy hot.
Though the temperature in San Pedro doesn’t move very much – hovering around the mid-80s, the sun was INTENSE and the humidity powerful. It felt way hotter than that.
But heat stops no man. Or blogger. And it’s VERY busy at Cayo Frances Farm & Fly.
Here are tons of snapshots from my week. Some time in town – some time at the camp. Let’s start with town.
Middle Street views.
Eating a ridiculously great lunch at El Fogon. My favorite – conch fritters (remember that conch season is ending EARLY this year – April 30th!) and salbutes. Such a perfect snacky meal.
And the fogon – or fire hearth – or faya haat.
Later in the week, a delicious lime meringue pie from this tiny deli/shake shop next to my favorite coffee spot.
If you want to feel incredibly civilized – order a latte and lunch from Lavish Habit (GREAT SPOT)…
It was not all eating and flouncing about. There were LOTS of errands to run.
Gas for the stove does not magically come from the wall – you need to get a tank refilled.
Can you feel that heat?
This local fishing boat on the back side of the island with “bush sticks” and flowers. So pretty.
And weekend BBQ.
And then back up north by our house.
Our new sign at the house.
And a peak into our neighbor’s yard – Xtan Ha Resort.
And now to the camp…the ride over.
Andress collecting firewood for the nightly fire.
I helped unload – I didn’t just take photos!
Before I run out for our next round of errands, I’ll close it with this pretty funny hoax yesterday. Our electricity company actually had to issue a response – it spread thru the country like wild fire.
What is the name of the ice cream store where these lime meringue pies are sold?
It’s really just a window with some stools. I’m not sure what the name is… But it’s sandwiched between Lavish Habit and Sparadise and there are 100 school kids there at 3pm.
Thanks, we are few weeks out before arriving and it is these little off the beaten path things that we like the most when we travel.
