San Pedro Dock

San Pedro Dock

San Pedro is a little beach town on Ambergris Cay in Belize.  Accommodations in town are reasonably priced, but above typical backpacker levels.  Away from town there are expensive resorts.  Food is good, cheap and always accompanied by Marie Sharp’s habanero pepper sauce.  The scuba diving is noted for large numbers of nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays, black grouper and Jewfish.  The reef there is one of my favorite diving areas and is where I learned the basics of technical diving. You can kick back, have a beer and listen to Dennis Wolfe and the  Usual Suspects at BC’s beach bar where the first 3 photos were taken.  This is also the island where the famous John Mcafee lived for a while.  Don’t worry, there are lots of strange and mysterious people left.

  9. I can TOTALLY see my cow sitting on the end of that dock. and I LOVE the shipwreck!!! That photo has me captivated! Do you sell them as screen savers? I know I could “borrow” it, but I would be willing to pay for it!!!

    • A cow on a dock, contemplating clouds over the sea, that would be a great picture.

  12. Some great shots, especially San Pedro dock and Thunderhead Seascape, both look potentially saleable! The ladies were pretty fine too! ;)

    Cold overcast weather continues in normally mild Houston. I have to get away.

  15. The dock image grabs me to travel its path–to somewhere and nowhere. Marvelous.

    • Well, if you walk down to the end you can go swimming. The water is pleasant all year.

  23. Your photos got me to thinking how much I want to go to Belize, been trying to go for years but something else always comes up.

    December 10, 2013 at 12:27 am

  24. Great images (yours always are!), gives me itchy feet. In particular when looking out at Scandinavian December gloom – 4pm, pitch dark and an icy rain.

    December 10, 2013 at 9:34 am

    • Fred, it has been unusually cold here in this Southern city. It was just a crack above freezing this morning.

      December 10, 2013 at 10:01 am

    December 10, 2013 at 10:01 am
