from a friend.....

We have one pelican, a young one, that likes to traverse between the back bay and to the beachfront. He invariably follows the street route at the narrowest part of the island, one lot over from me and I watch him pass from my hammock. I counted three adult Pelicans this morning, cruising the beach.s Big ones.

The island of Caye Caulker has about 5 laundromats, several bicycle rentals, golf cart rentals, kayak rentals, canoe rentals, kite surfing lessons and rentals, small sailboat one sail type rentals, tours galore offered all over the place An outdoor movie theater, numerous ice cream parlors, coffee shops and plenty of restaurants of all kinds. A number of open beach bar-b-cues, specializing in shrimp, fish and such. One thing I didnīt like is the tendency for people to build wooden shacks and there is even one wooden outhouse with a plastic septic tank right on the beach itself. The public beach right of way is 66 feet from high water. Several pier type businesses are grandfathered in, as they also did the beach filling back 30 years ago. A lot of these new ones should not be there at all. They are interfering with the photogenic setting of the tourism package here. A lot of portable stalls line the beach, but some vendors have taken advantage of the free public beach land and have built permanent stalls, with doors, etc . This should not be at all.

I notice the Chinese supermarkets are selling chopsticks and wooden slivers used for skewering barbecue- shish k bob, or whatever they call it, imported from China. While we are exporting China our raw lumber supplies. Doesnīt make any sense to me. 12,000 mile round trip to buy wood skewers from a Chinese store here on the island.

The major asset of the island scene is no vehicles bigger than a gold cart. Though there are apparently two or three exceptions. Golf carts, your feet and bicycles seem to be the way tourists see the island and how children go to school. This is what gives Caye Caulker itīs special unique tourist flavor. If the Council do not protect that, they will lose their tourist package. There are people steadily raking the streets and picking up garbage. It looks nice and people mention quite candidly how clean and beautiful it is.

There seems to ba an all around lack of enforcing established laws here. From the use of beach right of ways. To the young tourist travling through that are selling jewlery etc on the side of the roads with no permits, to all the dogs running around loose when we have a leash law.. enforcing these laws would not only be good for the appeal of the caye but it could also bring revenue to the caye as some of these laws come with fines attached.
