There is an exciting beauty in the Sandlighters of Belize.
I chased this one yesterday in my outboard to get this shot.
This boat, like many other Lighters, hauls sand from the mainland to Ambergris Caye.
After shoving the sand into the dory and rowing load after load to the sailboat they begin the sail from Belize in the dark with hopes too arrive and unload their cargo at dawn. If the NE Trade Wind helps them along most days they will arrive home before dark the next day.

I discovered something remarkable yesterday. I posted this and then went to Google to check if my definition of the word Sandlighter was correct .Google already had my photo up and was using it to define 'Sandlighter' scary hua...
