Cucumber Marina to Colson Cayes

Belize City, Belize

By mid-morning we were motoring toward Colson Cayes, in order to top up our house batteries. Cucumber Marina had not been able to hook us up to electricity.

However, the wind picked up and ,as soon as, possible we hoisted sails, in a brisk wind that soon pushed the boat to over 7 knots. We reduced sail and then reduced sail some more. By 4:30p.m.we were safely anchored.

The rainy weather is following us down the coast but we were hoping to snorkle and bird watch here. We also understand that there is a blue hole on the other side of the island from were we are anchored.

When we took the dingy into the lagoon to bird watch, but the birds were hiding from the rain! It is still a beautiful spot!
