Caye Caulker Harbor

Two Different Harbors

It’s about time I post photos for Twitter’s #FriFotos challenge.  This week’s theme is HARBORS.  I’ve picked a couple of harbors that probably couldn’t more different from one another. Seward, Alaska – Small Boat Harbor Seward happens to be one of the ice free ports in Alaska and because of that stays busy year-round, but […]

How I Improved the Quality of my Underwater Photos

I’ve mentioned before that I have an Olympus Stylist Tough 8010 for underwater photography.  While the photos have always been a great source of memories for me, they have never been great quality.  I worried that I had purchased the wrong underwater camera when I compared my photos to some of the photos published by […]

Mother Nature Please Dismiss Winter

On Friday I took my dogs, Kinley and Aker, in for their spring haircuts.  Now just a few days later Mother Nature has decided that winter is not over yet.  I feel deflated by the sight of the one to two inches of snow in my backyard.  I wake up Kinley and Aker.  Even they […]

Photo Journal of Caye Caulker, Belize

Here are some snapshots from my recent trip to Caye Caulker. I especially like the warning on the police station and of course there is the ‘Go Slow’ mentality. As a couple of locals have told me ‘On Caye Caulker…Go Slow…because on the island we have two cemeteries and no hospitals.’

Tasty and Interesting Foods I Ate in Belize

I never intended for my blog to be about food, but as I’ve said before I love food. And travel includes a lot of new and loved food experiences.  I already told you about our lobster feasts and traditional Belizean Stewed Chicken yumminess, but I actually ate some other interesting and great tasting dishes in […]

Lobster, Lobster, Every Where

We ate a lot of lobster during our recent visit to Belize.  All of it was really good…some of it was great.  I’ve listed them below in order of our favorites, but honestly none of them deserved last place.  I thought I would share it with you (sure wish you could taste via the internet)…you’ll just […]

Belizean Favorites: Rum Punch and Shrimp Ceviche

It wasn’t until a bit over a year ago that I tried both of these for the first time.  It was a snorkeling trip with Raggamuffin Tours on Caye Caulker that introduced me to them.  Raggamuffin didn’t let me down this past week.  We snorkeled Coral Gardens, Shark/Ray Alley, and Hol Chan with them on […]

Snorkeling More of the Belize Barrier Reef

We left Caye Caulker with Raggamuffin Tours around 1030am.  While probably some of the most commercial part of the Belize Barrier Reef, Coral Gardens/Shark Ray Alley/Hol Chan, are very impressive in my opinion.  They plan the order in which you arrive at each stop in perfect sequence…as each stop arrives, the sites get more and […]
