- Wave arrives

Some rain late last night, cloudy skies and high but not rough water in the early morning.   It's now a bit after 9AM and the heavy clouds have begun to deliver the anticipated precipitation.  Looking at the satellite images, I'd have expected harder rain and more thunder that we are experiencing but perhaps that is yet to come.    Not a day for boating or diving.

Saturday 6:30AM, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
Winds picked up last night, temperature dropped a bit.  
Photo below shows a wall of rain coming over the reef and onto the island.
No alarm bells from the weather bureau.  We need the rain.

There has been so little to report from the Cayes of Belize other than a hot 
and dry summer.   I just noticed on a weather site that although the 
temperature in San Pedro is only 87F, it "feels like" 102F.  Great excuse for 
getting in the hammock in the shade with a tall glass of ice tea.
Looking forward to the rains we anticipate from the tropical wave that should 
cross our shores Sunday.
Over the past week or two we have had a remarkable amount of saragasum float up 
to the shore.  With the seas calm, the water and sun being very hot, the stuff 
is virtually cooking in the shallows. 
Looking forward to the September Celebrations, Carnival and all the parades and 
parties that go along with the season.
