snorkelgirl, hee hee. I remember standing on Amigos' dock, freezing my butt off and whining a little bit. I checked my dive computer to see what the temp could possibly be and it was 73! I laughed to think that I would find that temperature cold. But I'd been there long enough to be a bit acclimatized and I'd been diving for a number of days in a row.
It can get cooler than that in the evening, so I always recommend taking a sweater or light windbreaker when going in the winter months.
Anyway there's a bit of humor in the truth. While those of us from the northern climes wouldn't normally think of 73 in mid-winter as chilly, when we leave our cold clime for warm temps, we don't anticipate goosebumps while standing out on the dock in broad daylight, either.
Regardless, I was trying to point out that even though the temps may not be in the 90s, when compared to home, even a chilly day in Belize is better. After all, I was standing on a dock in my bathingsuit, wasn't I?
