Good Friday Drought

Water pressure is steadily getting worse.  According to the Ambergris Caye message board thread they are talking about rationing us over Easter. San Pedro Sun blog says ‘ BWS hereby informs residents and visitors to San Pedro that, should the available supply continue to diminish, the company will have no choice but to restrict or ration water over the Easter Weekend. For health and sanitary reasons, BWS will attempt to keep any required water rationing restrictions to no more than a few hours at a time.’ I topped up my spray bottle just in case.

In addition to my mini rant on contact forms yesterday I have another beef about websites today. Many do not include a local contact number –  do not assume all people surfing your websites are far away because that is not always the case. If I had $1 for every site that did not have a local contact number listed I could treat myself to a nice lunch or a dirty banana.

Our water has slowed to a crawl and it is only 11:04am – Lemon Crush Lara just verified same on the coconut phone and gave an ‘ugh’. Hopefully it will return to normal soon.

Shout out to Remo and Cybercayecaulker – not sure when you are due to hit the island – you picked a great weekend to come.



  1. Good day!! Laurie my family and I are planning on making the move to San Pedro. We have already put our house up for sale and have set a date to move. We are from Brantford Ontario, Canada, but after reading all the terrible crimes that have recently occurred on the Island we are a little scared. We have been to the Island many, many times and never once felt that we had to watch our back. My question to you is what is the community feeling and are what are your thoughts? Thanks from cold Canada!!

  2. Hi Sarah. Congratulations when are you planning your move? Since you have been her many times and know that feeling of not having to watch your back it is important to keep that in mind. We just celebrated 4 years here and still feel as safe now as we did when we first turned up. We do take caution at night and try not to bring bank or credit cards out and things we do not need with us or walk the beach alone (all things I practiced in Canada too)

  3. Well I am glad you still feel as safe as you did four years ago! We are planning on moving in a year and a bit. We have 2 little ones age 6 and 3 and safety is our primary concern. The news reports we get from the island have been concerning. We live in small town Canada and have never been exposed to violent crime and a police force that is questionable. Well thanks for your input and I look forward to reading your blog.

  4. Understandable safety being a main concern. We have neighborhood watch groups for each area on the island and they are working individually and together in combination with the town board to keep San Pedro Safe.
