Belize Ten Day Forecast: 80 Percent chance of rain every single day!
I can’t believe the forecast but, apparently, this is the RAINY SEASON. It did rain through the night. We had the hatches open and Lily, sleeping underneath an open hatch, woke us up with “IT IS RAINING!” We scrambled around closing everything up.
Today, we are spending a lazy morning on the boat. Randall is charging up the batteries and reading “The Hobbit” to Lily. Lily is drawing chickens (ARCHER: Lily is doing the coolest Anime-style chicken combs. Wish you were here to draw with us!) I am trying my hand at some of those cool looking Island sharks that tattoo artists do. Jake is reading and playing cards.
Foxtrot – San Pedro anchorage
We love Belize dwellings. The bamboo was left with a rough husk on which looked really cool.

Traps on Cay Caulker
This plant grows along a central axis instead of branching out. Kinda neat looking.
Cay Caulker restaurant. There are no chain restaurants in Belize but hundreds of tiny little places with menus which change daily.

Lily took almost 100 pics of this little stow away. Wish we could ID him. Toni? (Photo cred: Lily)
Blue Ground Range anchorage – first really smooth water we have had
Cool, loved it. Have fun.
Looks like you guys are having a great time. Are you going to be in Belize for awhile?
We are trying to decide how long to stay!! So much to see but the weather is not great for snorkeling and we are sort of ready to get to Rio Dulce and get settled in a marina for awhile. Will probably head to Guatemala pretty soon.
oh what fun. It is so beautiful there and people so friendly, and you don’t have to use your spanish!!!
looking forward to hoooking up w/ you in the Rio…
