Keep on running – Ambergris Caye style.


A common sight for me early in the morning ( around 5 for me) in Ambergris Caye is the constant stream of people (Belizeans, expats and tourists alike) out exercising . Some power walk, some jog, some run fast. Some just walk their dog. They all have things in common though.

They are doing their best to get or keep fit. They are doing so when it is more temperate. And they get to see the beach and the coastline at what for me is the best time of the day.

A cross between power walking and running.

The man should always be the leader.

I know, they are all running away from me!

Knowing that we had a few hours before our meeting with Daniel Camal, our building contractor, Rose and I decided to go for a walk on the southern side of he island . We got as far as Athens Gate which is around two and a half miles from our apartment before we had to turn around and head back . Along the way we saw some interesting sights.

Who needs a guard dog when you have a killer conch to look after your property?

Look at the sea grass on the beach when there is no one clearing it.

We got back in good time for our meeting with Daniel during which we told him that we want internal doors like this ;

Pouring of the concrete for the water tank for our build in Ambergris Caye will not take place until Thursday.

Oh, the Spencer Davis Group sang the headline .
