“Go Now” to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.


I’m out on the veranda. Yes the western (lagoon) facing one. It’s just past 01.00 hours. I’ve got no mug of black coffee with me – come on , it would keep me awake for hours- but I do have the iPad with me.

Regular readers are now starting to think thworld has turned upside down. I mean he (that’s me) always gets up early. And that’s the time of the day that he writes about. Why’s he writing his blog at 1 pm (remember you’re thinking this, not me. If it had been me I’d have said 01.00 hours).

Well I’m writing it now because I’ve got just back from attending the 2014 San Pedro Lobsterfest Block Party and, because I had a particularly good time and a fair amount to drink, I still feel wide awake. So I thought why not knock out an edition now.

Now if I were erudite – and I’m not- and had the energy – which I don’t – I’d give a couple of paragraphs to how Lobstersfest started in 2008 (or was it 2007 ?) . But I won’t. I mean its late and I need to go to bed. If not how can I be expected to be out here ( on the western veranda) at 04.00 hours (it’s me now so it’s the 24 hour clock).

Rose and I were here for the first Lobsterfest (2007 or 2008) and since then each one has got bigger and better than the one before . And this year’s Block Party to bring the event to a culmination was the best so far.

Now I could sit out here ( that’s on my western veranda) padding out a few paragraphs but in all honesty it’s been a long day and I think I really should go to bed . So I’ll just leave with a few photographs that I took.

Stands being set up around 13.00 hours.

Rose and I got to Central Park (that’s where it’s held) around 19.00 hours and it was in full swing.

Told you!

And music too.

And loads of people enjoying themselves.

I wish that I could sit out here a bit longer and wax lyrical about the wonders of Lobsterfest but in all honesty I’m not going to. No for me its time to go now. To bed. Goodnight.

The headline for today’s edition is based on the single released in 1965 by The Moody Blues which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and number ten in the US Billboard Hot 100.

  1. Hi John! We were also enjoying the lobster and libations at Lobsterfest last evening. Sorry I missed you say hello….hopefully we will run into you around town or at Carlo and Ernie’s while we are here. 🙂

    • Hi Jan. It was good to meet Clive and you yesterday. The condo for rent I mentioned is actually the third building (not the second as I incorrectly said) on the right immediately north of the bridge. It’s at Bermuda Beach Resort. Two bed, two bath at US$ 1,200 per month. Hope you get done what you want to get done during the remainder of your trip. John

      • Hello John. Thanks so much for the heads up on the condo…..we will check it out tomorrow. It was a pleasure meeting and chatting with you and Rose at Carlo and Ernie’s yesterday. Too bad the outcome of the USA-Portugal game wasn’t as pleasurable as our chat. Oh well, a tie is better than a loss! Thank you for your well wishes and I’m sure we will cross paths again.

  2. liked the Moody Blues…………… wish I had been there for the event, the lobster event I attended in Corozal last year was not as enticing.
