North Ambergris Caye Birthday Joyride

These pictures of our Birthday joyride are for my brother Rob who just had his birthday and Cowboy Doug whose is coming up this week. You would have enjoyed our drive Rob, not only did we have good entertainment with Cowboy Doug rockin out to Elvis and Van Harlen, we had great weather a fantastic view on our island style country drive. This post also goes go out to  Emily and Barry because they have traveled the roads in north Ambergris Caye many times on bikes with camera in hand.

It has taken time to even pare down the pictures enough from our Sunday drive to get close to uploading. I decided to spit them in two batches and discovered some new math while doing so, 15 pictures does not equal 4oo yards. That is what Cowboy was claiming for distance from Coco Beach swim up pool bar to Mata Grande Grocery store. It is a good thing the 3 of us cowboy wranglers did not send him wandering off alone to the store or we would not have seen him for a good while as you will see from the pictures below 🙂

After restocking on beverages at the store and not wanting to cut short our scenic Sunday drive, we decided to drive a bit further north before heading to Grand Belizean Estates so we could see what kind of progress if any is being made there.

There are a lot more roads than the time Dick Paul and I we went there by boat and we saw a few scattered houses. There seemed to be a big party happening on the lagoon and we were about to go check it out when we realized our tire was low in air. Everyone agreed it was better to get back to Grand Caribe where we had air compressor access if we needed it and so ended our birthday joyride. Of course once we hit the main road and saw we were not riding on the rim, we stopped at Rendezvous and Capricorn for beach bar beverages on our way home. As soon as we got back to GC we all agreed there was no better way to end an Island style Sunday drive then with nap time.
