Lighthouse Reef, beyond the Blue Hole. Turquoise-injected waters so stitched in my mind that it would be impossible to dilute the imagery with the passage of time.
Stop the waffle presses: Ham and Cheese Whiz waffles at Reina's on Caulker for 5 Belizean dollars ($2.50 US).
Beef burritos as long as my arm at Let's Go Eat, San Ignacio. Spiked with Marie Sharp's hell-hot haberno hot sauce.
Jerk chicken and shrimp ceviche from Enjoy Bar on Caulker. Best served in the sand.
You can teach old dogs new tricks. Even how to surf. Two of Jungle Jeannie's four surf-mad German shepherds.
Hi-tops in Hopkins Village.
Horse is in the garage.
Collapsed lighthouse, Half Moon Bay, Lighthouse Reef.
The comical red-footed booby. I'd seen the blues in Galapagos, so, a 2 hour ride out beyond the Blue Hole to their colony on Half Moon Bay (Lighthouse Reef) was essential.
Male frigate birds trying to impress the gals. It takes nearly 20 minutes for them to inflate their sexy sacs.
Entrance to Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, the Mayan Underworld. Start heavy breathing now.
LOTS of self-talk going on here at the ATM cave. Glad I didn't stuff my bra with Kleenex that morning. Tight squeeze all around.
Last bit of sun at Caves Branch before entering the cavern of the Crystal Cathedral waterfall.
Jungle Jeannie's Inn by the Sea, Hopkins Village. Cue up crashing Caribbean waves soundtrack here.
Beach cabanas, Caye Caulker. If you can't walk on stilts, you can sleep on them.
Sundowner cocktails on Caye Caulker, 5:30 sharp.
