No long preamble or ramblings before I get in to bringing readers up to date with our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize.. Just to ‘say’ that I had a very lazy morning/early afternoon on Saturday watching the Huddersfield Giants v Catalans Dragons Rugby League game followed by a ‘visit’ to Australia to watch Queensland play New South Wales in the State of Origin game. And a brutal game it was too.
As was the weather. Very hot and hardly any breeze. Don’t want you to think that I am complaining though. Just take it as a layman’s weather report.
Knowing that we were going on a Poker Run in the evening Rose and I went to visit our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize earlier than usual and got there around 1.30 pm, not long after the guys had returned from lunch (some of them cycle home for for their meal and then cycle back – doubt that they get much more than thirty minutes to eat).
When we got there it appeared that nearly everyone was on clean-up duty. Brooms and shovels at work in all areas. We did see some signs of progress on our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize though but just a lil bit.
The small walls on the entrance stairs had had the penultimate coat of cement applied and just now need the finishing (smooth) coat before the handrails are fitted.
Another view (looking down) of the first flight.
How the walls will look when the finishing coat has been applied.
Inside the house the Sheetrock (plaster board) for the ceiling in the kitchen/dining room areas had been refitted following the successful test of running water through the pipes and they were applying joint tape and joint compound in readiness for the finishing coat of cement.
Shouldn’t be able to see the joins!
In the early evening (it starts at 6.30 pm) Rose and I met up with our friend Frank who had come over from the BATSUB (British Army Training and Support Unit Belize) base at Price Barracks, Ladyville to go on the Poker Run. Frank had brought with him ten young soldiers who are here in Belize for a six week posting. We had a great time (didn’t win, again) but boy can those soldiers drink!
