Walking the backroads of Belize

Good morning on  a cloudy and chilly morning at the Bird’s Eye View Lodge in Crooked Tree Belize.  Looks like all that frigid weather they are having up north has made it’s way down here. We have a northerly wind which brought in some cooler temperature. Must have dipped into the 60’s  this morning and…

This is new to me, so not sure if I’m breaking any blogging rules with my third post today, but wanted to share some of the many photographs I took of the beautiful bird species that live here around the lagoon at Crooked tree.  This photo wasn’t taken at a zoo, but from our boat,…

Sunrise is always a good medicine for anything that ails you.

Good morning from Central America. Wasn’t the most pleasant night, spent a lot of time  in the bathroom,  but green tea,  imodium  and a light breakfast are helping.   Feeling so much better, and have to thank fellow traveler,  Dr. Nancy and the staff here who have been so helpful with my predicament. You always…

Trouble in Paradise, but I did get to see some cool stuff.

Well it was almost heaven down here, but back to Earth today, not sure if it was something I ate or drank but I spent more time in the bathroom at the Mayan temples at Altun Ha then I did exploring the site. Got to see a lot of it and climbed to the top…

Another Morning in Paradise. at Crooked Tree, Belize.

It seems that things just get better around here. Had a wonderful morning looking for birds, and learning so much about the natural environment of this beautiful area, on a boat ride on the Crooked Tree Lagoon. And we saw a lot of spectacular birds, and iguanas, howler monkeys and even some bats. Started the…
