My biggest fear right now is that both my cameras are going to crap out on me at the same time. I know I said my underwater camera was done for but I have managed to make it last a bit longer by trying to air it out well and methodically cleaning it as best I can. Now it is in the hit or miss stage for working and I think better for rainy days only and not so much underwater shooting.
My regular Samsung Digimax L85 camera is showing the same signs of age as last time – not opening and closing properly and making a sad beeping noise. I can pinpoint the exact time it started too the day we got the 11 inches of rain on Ambergris Caye.
I cannot stress how important it is to take good care of your electronic equipment here especially with all the rain we have been having lately. Yesterday was very wet out I even had to put my portable radio in a zip lock bag to use it on our drive around town.
This morning is still very gray out and it looks like we may get away without any rain from what I can see right now. I know how fast that can change going to check Ambergris daily and see what today’s weather calls for.
Good find this morning while surfing the net… Known as the center of the ancient Maya world, Belize once held almost 2 million Mayans. Temples, pyramids and palaces, surrounded by agricultural villages, reined supreme for well over 600 years.
