Accommodation: Colindas Cabanas, Caye Caulker

Woke up really groggy on Day 11….it was hot and sunny!  We had decided the night before to go on a half day snorkel tour in the afternoon.  We have been within 2 miles of the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world for more than one week…love to snorkel and still haven’t gone out..we did the 1 pm with Carlos Tours.  There were only 4 of us and we went on a rather comfy speed boat (all of 5 minutes to the reef)….we went to 3 spots….to reefs and one area where the sting rays and nurse sharks gather….sooo many rays…sooo many sharks…amazing!  I have to admit that pulling my body in and out of a boat is a challenge, but somehow with a little assistance I manage to get the job done 🙂  If we had done nothing more than relax on the boat as it bobbed around in the water I would have been a happy camper!  The other two passengers on the boat were two architectural grads from Montreal off on a 7 week trip through Mexico, Guatemala & Belize.  Really nice young men who seemed to be having a great time!

Once back we were starving and showed off the sea salt and headed to a restaurant recommended by our snorkel guy Romeo.  Some dark clouds had rolled in and we walked in a tropical shower – refreshing!  We arrived at Reina’s for dinner….it was a bit early by Belizean standards so we sipped our drinks, munched on some chips and salsa and waited for the catch to come in and the barbecue to heat up.  They grill in drum like bbq’s on coals that are heated to perfection, no clue what the coals are made of but the smell of the fire alone is amazing!  I had coconut seafood (shrimp and conch) curry and Johnny had Jerk Chicken.  The owner of the restaurant – Elvis was a great guy and amazing chef!   We went for a long walk after dinner and as always read for a little while before having an early night.  No plans for Wednesday yet…only time will tell!
