Quiet Steamy San Pedro Town

Morning all,

It’s a HOT quiet Sunday morning on Ambergris Caye and I am still going thru my photos from my FANTASTIC stay at The Lodge at Chaa Creek.  I’ll get back to you on that!

I also went to the doctor yesterday morning – a radiologist comes to San Pedro from Belize Health Care Partners in Belize City.  He comes to Dr. Dan’s clinic – once a week.  My doctor had pointed out to me a few months ago that I should get a thyroid ultrasound.

Here’s my trip to the GYN in Belize City in July.

And I kinda put that information in my “to think about at a more convenient time file” – it’s RIGHT before my “denial file” – for the time being.  But I was chatting to my San Pedro doctor last week and she mentioned it: my thyroid looked swollen.  Ok universe!  I GET IT!  I made an appointment for the ultrasound.

Ultrasound yesterday ($150bzd) and the diagnosis:  Acute/subacute thyroiditis.  Probably Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

I’m headed to Belize Healthcare Partners in Belize City this week to meet with an internist to get to the bottom of this!  Wish me luck 🙂  It all sounds quite manageable but it’ll be nice to get some firm answers.

I took a BUNCH of photos of San Pedro a few days back.  I love town.  Some find it trafficky and a bit intimidating.  I’ve seen it referred to as “a city” in quite a few Tripadvisor reviews or blogs.  Sure parking can be tough…and some of the streets are narrow…but it has so much character and so many great businesses…and it’s fun to photograph at this time of year.  When things are slow and I can stand in the middle of the street to take the pictures.

Note:  If you feel a bit intimidated by the traffic of town, don’t skip it!  I suggest Belize Food Tours – a great way to take a guided walking tour and EATING tour of San Pedro Town.

So here are my pics!  You can see how still the water is.

Jaguar’s Nightclub – which has been closed since the beginning of the pandemic.

Inside Fido’s Courtyard – the bar and restaurant is closed – the smaller shops – the jewelry and art store are both open for business.

Back outside!

To Middle Street.
