Due to the rainy weather and washed out skies on Wednesday I only got three pictures I liked, so I went for a walk the following day and shot 200 more figuring I will get lucky after editing. As it turns out I deleted a whole bunch, and dumped 50 to my stock photo pile and am still editing through 35 to pick 3 images for today’s post.
As I was going through my puddle pictures, I was reminded of some of the trade-offs I experienced in moving to a tropical island off the coast of Belize. I will take the cons of the rainy season – occasionally getting drenched, giant puddles and the skeeters any day over a cold Canadian Winter. There are a few pros as well – nothing like seeing tons of tiny frogs hopping around the back road puddles and when I am waterproofed, I love getting caught in a warm tropical downpour.
