September and October – aside from a few days of rain here and there – were primarily HOT on Ambergris Caye, humid, and mostly sunny. The types of days that I imagine siestas were invented for – your big lunch of stew chicken, rice and beans followed by a cool shower and then relaxing/passing out in front of a fan or under a humming air-conditioner.
But just a few days ago…as the calendar flipped from October to November…our very first “cold front” blew in. Northerly winds…generally part of a larger system that sweeps down from the US and Canada…
The humidity drops – frizzy haired people rejoice – as does the temperature. Instead of waking up to 85 and humid, we wake up to 77…78 and a chill in the air.
(For those scoffing, PLEASE remember that it is all relative!)
And then on my drive north…at about 3 miles North Ambergris Caye…I stopped to chat with Glen and admire his gift shop. He’s got great wood carvings and some beautiful original paintings…at really reasonable prices…
I REALLY like two of the paintings…this means trouble for me driving back and forth past this everyday. I have a tendency to get obsessed!
Stop by and take a look.
