Belize day 4

. Beautiful sunrise this morning.  Hearing the ocean waves gently lapping on the shore beneath our window is peaceful and relaxing...except that I had to turn the TV up to hear it over the waves

Belize day 3c


Belize day 3b

First time renting a jet ski. More fun than a person should be allowed to have!

Belize day 3

Dolphins again this morning...  There were at least 6 milling around for 20 or 30 minutes.  There is one in this picture.

Belize day 2 (more)

Rent a golf cart and take your life in your hands cruising the streets of San Pedro.  This pic doesn't look bad, but the streets get very busy with cars, carts, motorcycles, bikes, pedestrians and children playing in the streets.  There are very few rules.  Just don't hit anyone else.  That's my kind of driving!

Belize day 0... Must have gadget!

I was wishing something like this existed, but was surprised to find it does exist! Turn your ordinary digital camera into a wifi camera with one of these very cool SD card.  Never remove your sd card again.

I've been using it on this trip.  It takes a little setup at first, but now, after a day of taking pictures i just turn the camera power on while "near" my phone or tablet and it automatically/wirelessly transfers the pics to my phone, then my phone uploads them to picasa or other online service.  Super simple...automagic!

Belize day 2

Awoke to see dolphins frolicking out our window this morning!  Our room is five feet from the Caribbean ocean. What a view! There are no dolphins in this picture, but they were right at the end of that pier.

Belize day 1

Boat ride from Belize city to Ambergris Caye.  This pic was taken about a mile off shore where the engine died and the captain had to call for help.   The adventure begins !!
