Waiting for the water taxi
by Peter Jones on 08/30/08 02:15 PM

... from the Hustler dock yesterday morning. Ominous clouds that didn't produce what they threatened.

The log was from the local beach, taken with my now-defunct Samsung L85.

Protech,
you were lucky not to get wet on the water taxi trip. It can be a long ride if you're in a squall the whole tims.

I was only going to Caye Caulker, a 30 minute ride. I have been caught in squalls on the way to/from Belize City, usually either on an uncovered boat (in the old days) or on a crowded boat when I've been at the back outside the shelter. I rarely use the boat for the longer trip now.

As to camera, I was using my DSLR, not the Samsung compact that was destroyed. But yes, I found someone on ebay selling her Samsung used just once, so come the weekend I should have that as well. This model of Samsung (L85) could be described as the San Pedro camera, as so many of us here have them and love them. It's the same model that Tacogirl uses, and I got the idea from her.
