Dec 20, 2007
Unfortunately our time was up, Dave's and mine....Dave was heading south and I was going north into Mexico. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon Dave and hearing all about the end of your trip :)
The day after Tikal and getting up super early we had another early start, leaving Flores at 5 am for a 12 h trip to Caye Caulker. It was so nice to get back to the sea and the Caribbean architecture! But of course first things first-- an innocent beer to watch the sunset which ended 12 hours later with the 2 of us dancing home from Wish Willie's! After a good aul hangover we signed up for a days diving. First off the Blue Hole. I was a bit nervous about it--a rapid descent to 40 m, but I didn`t get that narked and the columns that you swim beside are really cool. I was a bit disappointed as I only got to see 2, maybe 3 reef sharks, but it was definitely an experience. It's quite dark down there and for some reason I couldn't see that well at all. The next 2 dives were a lot nicer in my opinion. Beautiful corral and nice fish, but the stingrays were my favourite! We saw a really big one half buried- he was maybe 2 m long, and I also saw 2 others swimming.
