It is a quiet day here at the tacoshack, 4:16 pm and I am still sitting around in my night gown ha ha (I did shower and put on a fresh one as it is so hot here today)
I have been watching some great documentaries about the Caribbean on the travel channel. I was just looking it up on their website to see what the show was and found out there were 4 from the Wild Caribbean series on today, I missed 2 of them.
I did catch some great footage of the barrier reef both day and night footage. Tarpon look so cool when they are swimming at night big silver and shimmery in the water. They are showing Turneffe Atol right now. The water looks so beautiful, I am so lucky to be able to walk out the door and see it anytime.
Here are the ones I saw….
The Caribbean is not just the islands. Explore the least known Caribbean, that area beyond the sea. A journey along the greatest Caribbean shoreline of all, that of Central America.
Take the island hop of your life. Discover the rich variety of islands that are the Caribbean, and what forces have shaped this paradise. We explore the riches of the Caribbean and the processes that shape them.
These are the ones I missed….
From the beginning of June until the end of November it’s hurricane season in the islands. With winds of over 150 mph, 5 meter storm surges and torrential rain, the destruction caused by hurricanes makes them one of the most feared forces of nature.
Reefs and Wrecks
The clear blue waters that surround the Caribbean islands are home to some of the world’s most stunning underwater treasures. For sailors that visit the coral reefs, they are a hazard to be avoided, but for everyone else they are not to be missed.
