Wolfe’s Woofers: Horsepower
“I took care of the car rental,” Sherry said. “I told them you’d be there around nine a.m. to pick up the car.”
“Thanks. Now take me to catch the plane for Belize City.”
By ten o’clock I was on the Burrell Boom road heading into Bermudian Landing. From there I would take the Lemonal Road to a cutoff that would take me to Mike McFarland’s ranch near the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary.
That was the plan, but when it started raining the dirt road to Mike’s place turned to sludge and before long my rented car was hopelessly stuck. An hour later the rain stopped. As I sat there wondering what to do, a Mennonite with a horse and wagon came plodding up the road.
Letter to the Editor: Crime does NOT pay!
To the trouble makers in San Pedro, the known criminals, the gang members and the wanna-be’s, listen up. I don’t think you’ve thought what you’re doing to and on the island of Ambergris Caye. Killings every month, hit and run thievery, robberies (where you hurt someone) and burglaries (where you don’t). And now a stupid act of knocking off a popular bar – and hurting a popular employee??? Let me repeat that…STUPID act! You may as well have shot yourself in the foot. Every time you do these senseless acts, you are hurting the economy of the only place you think you can make an unearned living. Have you ever heard of killing the goose that laid the golden egg? You don’t have any more eggs!

Snapshots from Hopkins, Belize – Let’s Get Ready for Mangos!
I was off to Hopkins, Belize. The annual mango festival waits for no man! A celebration of the summer fruit that explodes all over mainland Belize is the summer months. Trees are literally bursting with them. Let me lead with the most exciting news about Hopkins for those who visit frequently. The road through the village has finally been paved! No more puddles and bumps…
Though only 100 miles away from Ambergris Caye, Hopkins is SO different. As you approach the village, there are mountains behind you and gorgeous savannahs to both sides. The broad beach is made of river rock, rather than coral sand. Coarser and deep, it is a serious calf workout to take a stroll on the beach.
The reef is a few miles out but the ease of visiting the orange orchards, mountains and waterfalls is pretty…awesome.
And everything just seems so lush and GREEN! Flying over mainland Belize is a thing of beauty.
Cloudy Saturday view in Corozal
Many may enjoy the weather in Corozal differently here in Corozal. Wether it is cloudy, rainy day, hot day or just relax at home and enjoy the weather in Belize. Today Saturday June 2, 2018, I came out to enjoy the cool weather right here in Corozal. I came outside and noticed the rainy day earlier this morning. I walked along the beach from Scotty's to Dukker's Ice Cream palor in Corozal. I saw things changing around town. Like new businesses, local painting's being painted on the wall around Corozal, new buildings being built or businesses being upgraded in Corozal.
Where are the best places in the world to go camping?
TV survivalist and adventurer, Ed Stafford holds the Guinness World Record for being the first human ever to walk the length of the Amazon.
Unsurprisingly he’s an eager advocate of camping. “It’s a natural reset and an antidote to a stressful life,” he tells Express.co.uk.
His favourite places to go camping in the world range from Madagascar to Belize and here he shares his top five al fresco locations.
Number one on his list of best camping spots is the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland, Australia.
Second is on top of Victoria Peak, the highest mountain in Belize.
“This peaks just out of the Central American jungle canopy and on a good day you can see the Cayes on the Caribbean Coast,” Ed says.
