Early January Weather is Perfection On Ambergris Caye
After mixed weather during the holidays, January has been absolute weather-perfection. Temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s, lower humidity, bright shining sun and clear beaches.
Sunday afternoon, Jeff and I drove north from our home to check on Jeff’s new fishing camp project – Rocky Point Permit Camp. I took a bunch of photos because it was such a gorgeous day…here they are.
We are driving from about 8 miles north of San Pedro to about 18 miles south of San Pedro…there are a bunch of stops you can make along the way. At the new tiny bar In D Wild (about 9 miles north), at Chat n Chill (10 miles north), at El Norte Bar (11 miles north)…at Margaritaville (about 14 miles north), and Tranquility Bay (around 15 miles north).
We stopped in to say hi to Pany at Tranquility Bay Resort.
Looking back towards the beach and their cabanas.
Not a bad place to stop for a cold Belikin and a ceviche.
These guys are living it up in the brush.
A found a few up to 6 feet off the ground nestled in the palm trees. Someone told me that it means “weather is coming” – I guess we shall see.
To the beach!
We get so many huge sea logs and trees that wash up on the beach on Ambergris Caye. Makes me wonder…why don’t you see this (or fear sea logs in the murkier water) at the Jersey Shore or in Cape Cod? Why no trees in the water?
I spotted my NEMESIS. Sargassum.
Sure it looks harmless. Golden and fresh but in huge amounts? Ugh! Last year, we saw the return of sargassum end of January/beginning of February. I’m going to pretend I didn’t see this.
Just a wayward bunch on an otherwise pretty beach.
I walked a bit farther because I saw a kayak. Way up here! Maybe it’s from Jamaica or…Africa!
Alas, nothing so exotic. It’s from right here on the island. I wonder how it washed up 15 miles north of its home?
It was time for me to go. I heard the pot top ringing. Raul, the construction cook, clangs on a heavy metal pot cover when it’s eating time for the crew.
Delicious BBQ today.
This morning, it’s BREEZY but it looks like warm sunshine should continue.
Hope to see you guys here soon. And sargassum? YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.
