In April, I went to Belize with Bill Petrick and Glenn Glover.

 

A day sailboat trip to Caye Caulker provided some good snorkeling and conch steak for lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we joined a "live-aboard" dive boat for eight dives in three days, the most famous being the Blue Hole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a very clear and spectacular dive, and the fishing between dives brought in some Barracuda and Grouper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in Belize City, we rented a Dodge land yacht for two days, and drove west to the mountains near the Guatemala border.

 

Staying in San Ignacio, we visited Mayan ruins by day and enjoyed "punta rock" in the dance halls at night.
