Another early morning and another beautiful yet very windy day. C, K, N and I got up and headed to Rico’s for breakfast, where everyone ordered waffles but me (I went for the banana pancakes again). After that we walked to the dive shop to get ready for our 9 am dives. (see new post on diving)
We got back from diving around 1 pm. We hit the pool to wash off our salty bodies and once we got comfortable on pool chairs we decided to ditch the pool and go eat lunch. We went to Rico’s again (surprise, surprise). At a stones throw away from the pool and our condo it’s just too convenient not to go. After lunch K, N and I resumed our position at the pool, while C headed off for a nap in the condo. I just got settled in and started reading the fish identification chapter of my diving manual when I noticed a dark cloud wall looming in the distance. Soon the wind picked up, followed by a commotion of people buzzing about. Then a couple of the hotel employees were running inside and one of them proclaimed, “It’s coming, it’s coming!” We quickly gathered up our belongings and headed back to the room, and not a minute too soon. What was once clearly the ocean and sky became one big undefinable gray blur. Then it started sprinkling, followed by a windy down pour of rain and quick temperature drop.
**STORMY PHOTOS COMING SOON**
While the storm was wreaking havoc on our beautiful condo view, I typed up my dive blogs for the day and started this post. When the rain let up Kristen and I headed to the lobby to check on weekly internet rates. Since it was a reasonable price we signed up for the week. Too bad we have to be in the lobby to use it. Oh well, could be worse. Blog Reader/Writer Kristen wants me to let everyone know that she’s taking a vacation from the vacation blog. Maybe she’ll post now that she can get immediate gratification from her efforts. Until then, keep it right here at jillapalooza for the latest in Belize news!! :bigsmile:
