For almost a week. I’ve been a guest at the Jungle Lodge Inn, the Technical Education Center, TEC, connected to the Belize Zoo, “The best little zoo south of the United States!” Many professional scientists pass through here, as well as University student groups of future Marine Biologists or Environmentalists of all types. Due to an unseasonable rainy spell, the jungle is cooler now than it usually is and I’m really enjoying myself among the many birds and wild creatures that surround me. But first, here are some civilized creatures from my beach life.
The lovely, screened dining room at the Jungle Lodge, Belize.

Bill & Lynn, from South Carolina, next door neighbors on Ambergris Caye, Belize.

A Tapir, Belize’s National Animal, is finding out who I am, using the sniff test.
The Spider Monkeys went head-over-heels for me…in a tree!
This Buck Deer never rubbed the velvet from his antlers, so they hardened into lumps.
The Keel-Billed Toucan is Belize’s National Bird. All of the animals in this Zoo are rescued or injured, or former pets; which can’t survive in the wild.
She’s either a Tourist or a Toucan!

Anybody you know? Oh, it’s me!
Beach scene, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize
I hadn’t snorkled for 30 years!!! It was so much fun!
What’s not to like? Let’s do this again, sometime!
The fella I was chasing! A Green Turtle. This reef is the 2nd most-famous one in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.
Falling in love with the undersea….

A new meaning of the word “Chillin!'” Come join me in my new life in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize!
A fruit smoothie in a beachfront cafe in Belize sure can’t cause such an outcome! Can it????
Posing for my photo for the newspaper interview today. The San Pedro Sun on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Below……. Drinkin’ that fruit smoothie. Not spiked!
