18 Jun Belize: Caye Caulker
Today is our only full day in Caye Caulker. Mike and Andrew went on a SCUBA outing while Brandon and I did a snorkel trip with The Caveman — it was awesome. We saw manatees, sea turtles, sharks, and we were even chased by a moray eel! Even the Caveman had never seen that happen before. He really took care of us and it was a small group, just one other couple besides me and Brandon. They didn’t speak much English, so I ended up doing some translating — good for practicing my French. There was some excitement when a big moray eel decided to come up out of it’s hole and chase us around a bit…but it eventually went away with some discouraging kicks of the fins. Swimming with the nurse sharks was cool, saw lots of rays as well.
We had a great time, as did Mike and Andrew. We were all tired, and so we just headed down to the bar at the split to watch some soccer and relax. Dinner was at Terry’s grill, which is just around the corner from our hotel. He also does BBQ across from our hotel on the beach during the day. We had lobster again – not sure when we’ll be back, and it probably won’t be lobster season. Tomorrow we head back to Belize City and then on to the jungle around San Ignacio.
