The wind is fromKeep reading »

Clear Skies, Laundry Day and A Walk Around San Pedro

5 days of rain in San Pedro, Belize is a lot…add in the fact that in many places just a few of those days dumped over a foot of rain and some of the localized flooding has become world-wide news.

A Ride Up the Ambergris Coast…Construction!

I know, I know…the story today FOR SURE is the massive amount of rain and wind we’ve been getting as a tropical depression passed over us this weekend.  Rain seems as though it will continue for the next few days but nothing like it Friday-Saturday.  Or let’s hope.

Here are some pictures around theKeep reading »

The Rainy Season is Upon Us and HOPEFULLY Wrapping up Soon

After an almost unreally beautifully start to November, it closed with…a bit of a squish.  Wet, rainy, grey with a chilly northern breeze.  The temperature almost dipped into the high 60s one night! Saturday was a beautiful break in the rain… but Sunday and Monday?  Pretty much rain outs. A few pictures that I tookKeep reading »

A Fish Eye in My Soup on A Stormy Day In San Pedro, Belize
