Snorkeling the Blue Hole in Belize was an awesome experience (https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2016/04/14/snorkeling-the-blue-hole-in-belize/).
When we finished, we headed off to Half Moon Caye for some more snorkel and a lunch break:
It was a blustery day when we arrived. Check out how these trees blow:
It can get so windy here that it toppled an old brick lighthouse way back when:
Locals live here but they have campgrounds for you to stay over too:
I love how the palm trees have rocks and old conch shells to anchor them in place:
A path leads off the end of the island to an area of beach:
where you can jump in for a snorkel:
On the opposite end of the island, a path leads you to other sorts of wildlife:
Like a bird refuge where the RED footed boobies rest:
I waited a while for one of them to stand up to show off their red feet and finally got it as i was walking away:
This was so cool because I had just seen the BLUE footed boobies on the Galapagos Islands (https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2016/04/20/wildlife-of-the-galapagos/).
Along the way to see the boobies, we saw iguanas:
And hermit crabs too:
Too bad it was too windy and too short of a trip to do anything else. Can’t wait to come back!
