Bad Wifi prevented me from posting this on Day 5…so here it is on Day 11….

Crazy Canadians….hot hot hot! Our main goal for this vacation was to get out and walk walk walk. For anyone who knows me well, they will understand that in 2015 I set out on a regime to lose a bit of weight (yes I am smaller than I was one year ago by about 50 lbs). The diet aspect is really difficult to keep up so I need to rely upon walking/exercise to help me out. So, last year we went hiking almost every weekend and for walks in the evening. The winter reared it’s ugly head and the walking although still happening is less frequent with shorter durations. So……when one gets to the land of endless summer one must walk! However, what I have discovered here in Ambergris Caye is that walking (except along the beach) doesn’t seem all that normal. I honestly think Johnny and I are the only people who set out in the morning ‘on foot’. Everyone seems to rent golf carts to get from A to B. Even if they only have to go a few blocks for groceries, they jump in their cart. Strange. I guess I realized it a bit in advance when I was reading trip advisor reviews for our hotel. We are about 1.5 to 2.0 MILES from the centre of town where all the action is. The reviews of this hotel often said…nice little hotel but too far to walk into town. Of course, Johnny and I have walked into town each and every day and one day more than once.

OK….getting to Day 5…….it was HOTTTTTT….31 plus humdity, very little breeze. We walked the beach route into centre of town. Did I mention it was HOT??? Even the Belizians were sweating and complaining. Aparentally even they don’t like this type of weather. However, the difference between Canadians and Belizians is that they are smart enough to take it easy on days like this. NOT us! We walked and walked to the bridge, along the river, up and down the beach. Admittedly, we did stop for virgin drinks to cool down at one seaside restaurant with HUGE FANS!

Essentially, we just wandered, snapped photos, went out for lunch, then cabbed back to the hotel to relax on the beach for the rest of the day. We have a kitchen in our suite and cooked our own meal and that was that for Day 5 🙂

You know it’s hot when I wear a baseball cap for the first time in my life.
