The wheels on the bus

I was awoken with a start when my iPads alarm started playing "wake up little Susie" at 05:00. It was time to shower then move out of my room ready for my 6.5 hour journey to my next boat 'Scorch of Wessex' on the hard in the Rio Dulce.

Rattling the baby

Another day another waterfall, after a quick visit to the supermarket we went to a beach 🏝 that has (according to google) one of the best snorkelling areas on the island. Well if you like looking at sand great πŸ‘. It looked barren so I didn't even bother getting changed, Alex and Percy went in and [...]

Leatherbacks & a sulphur scrub

Off out again today. We drove up the East coast of the island 🌴 to an out of the way beach called Levera, it has a gentle sloping sandy beach 🏝 in a small bay, this is known as the home of the Leatherback turtle 🐒 in Grenada πŸ‡¬πŸ‡©, unfortunately for me it is the wrong time of year for them [...]

It's here

At 14:00 today our hire car πŸš™ has finally turned up, we were promptly taken to the police station where for the sum of 60 Eastern Caribbean Dollars, I was given a 3 month visitors driving license. We went to the supermarket and stocked up on our grocery's.

Grounding and chicken drop

17 May 2018
This morning we motored the 10 short miles to Cayo Ambergris, another beautiful island 🌴 belonging to Belize, we were helped by (as Judy calls him) Captain Pugwash, a nice Belizean, who advised us to follow him along the inside of the reef, because it is so very shallow, about half way along he turned off towards the reef with his paying passengers. For the last mile or so our depth sounder was reading 0 metres 0 centimetres, below our keel, so I was on the bow keeping lookout for any obvious hazards, as we passed the town of San Pedro, we touched the sand and came to a gentle stop, luckily for us it was low tide so the skipper said we would lift off soon. We decided to stay here so I dropped the anchor. The main transportation on the island 🌴 is by golf buggy, there are hundreds of them, they even have a rush hour complete with traffic jams. We went into the town and were invited to join a rather silly game that involves a board about 3 metres square and divided into 100 squares, when all squares have been purchased they place a chicken πŸ“ on the board then wait till it has a dump, whoever has the number that the chicken drops β˜”οΈ on wins $50 but they have to clean the board before getting their hands on the cash. I didn't win because I didn't buy any tickets. Gotta be in it to win it πŸ˜‚. We rented a golf buggy and went the 12km to the (not so) secret beach πŸ–, it was a lovely place but full of people. The water was only waist deep for over a kilometre out to sea 🌊.
We upped anchor at 07:15 and sailed for Cozumel island 🌴 MexicoπŸ‡²πŸ‡½.
