Caye Caulker –
Verena’s birthday! Since our room is a total mess, it plays well with my plans: I put up some candle bags and bury a treasure chest with a treasure map and her gift in the chaos of our stuff. Verena’s treasure hunt is soon over and she was pleased . Nice! I think I know what she likes. After a while, we get up and have breakfast at La Cubana. Some very, very, very bad breakfast (seriously, how can they demand money for this stuff?). We drink 2 Frappucino at Brisas del Mar as compensation – delicious as always .
Now for the diving with “Scuba Sensation”. Robin from the Netherlands and Scott, a judge from the States are also diving with us. We are on the lookout for some lionfish and try to harpoon as many as we can for later. We have some 2 really relaxed dives and some yummy lionfish ceviche in between made of our shot fish. It doesn’t even taste like fish. No birthdaycake as dessert, but I got some gluten-free chocolate croissants. Back at Caye Caulker we drink some Margaritas at the Split and watch a few people playing a beach game which resembles Viking’s Chess. They sure aren’t stingy here when it comes to alcohol. There were also giant margaritas – in huge glasses. But on an empty stomach? For Dinner we eat mango and banana butter lobster at Roy’s. Takes forever, unfortunately. On the way home, as I want to photograph the Spongebob-statue on the beach and do some light painting, a Rastaman complained that I rather want to take a photo of Spongebob but won’t photograph him with Pringels, his dog. A little crazytalk and 2 photos later, him and Pringels are on my SD card. Verena is perhaps right, that carrying camera equipment around attracts all sorts of people. I take some more light painting photos at the beach and then we head to bed.
