June Weather in Belize
According to the National Meteorological Service of Belize general weather forecast, for coastal areas, we are about to get a shift and experience northeast winds over the weekend. Being that we just entered the start of the rainy season, we should be getting more showers and thunderstorms as well. I’m so grateful I found door slides at Castillos to help me waterproof in that direction.
As for temperature, today it is partly cloudy with scattered showers, highs of 87°F/31°C and lows of 80°F or 27°C. We have also experienced recent high tides. As you can see in the picture below, the lagoon was definitely overlapping the road on Nurse Shark St. near the International Water Taxi area.
That same day, I was walking on the beach. There were lots of exposed pipes and windblown bits. The picture below is looking south by Ocean Ferry Water Taxi.
Some stretches of beach were cleaner and thankfully there were lots of sargasso free areas. Also thankful to Leahann Alcazar and Frank Lepiane who sponsored posts to help tacogirl.com survive the limited economic recovery of Ambergris Caye due to Covid-19 and loss of tourism. Our country and our island are getting hit hard with an economic crash.
As you view the picture below, take a few seconds, and imagine walking the beach. Enjoy the seaside breeze in your hair. Feel the cool clear water and sand between your toes. So peaceful. So Belize.
By the two-tone look of the sand, it appears the sea was coming over the seawall.
While grocery shopping on my way home, the headlines below made me laugh – tacos are back 😀 My friend Cindy and niece Tinker were also happy that we get the occasional fun of our Fantasy 5 lottery tickets. If ever there was a useful time for us to hit the jackpot, It would definitely be now 🙂
In other Belize Covid-19 news, the Government of Belize (GOB) SI rules got further relaxed. As of June 12th, there is a nightly curfew extension to 10:00 pm and midnight on weekends. Parks and contact sports are back in, and social gatherings (with distancing) have increased from 40 to now allow a group of 100 people to assemble. Provided nothing major happens, our State of Emergency (SOE) will end June 30th, 2020. Although I have to wonder what is the point? With Philip Goldson’s International Airport not having any projected reopening date, it will be hard to stimulate our economy enough internally. Crime will only get worse eventually, and a curfew is a nice safety feature, as well as making it easier for police to do their jobs.
I will leave you a hot daydreamy picture of the Belikin beverage tractor on Back St. Imagine you are finishing up your shopping and heading home for some Belikins and burgers on the grill. Make mine a fully loaded caramelized onion, bacon, swiss, please 😉
