Thirty-six miles off the coast of Belize City, Belize, lies a fly fisherman’s dream destination. Cayo Frances Farm and Fly is a small fly fishing camp located on the leeward side of Ambergris Caye that works with some of the best fishing guides on the island and is stacked with paddle boards and skiffs to go explore the surrounding waters.

Police Station and Central Park in San Pedro, 1983

A lot of sand, at Easter time you get a lashing from the strong winds blowing the sand

This picture is looking South just to the right of the Church and next to ‘my Army house ‘Coral Lodge.’ I remember the police building as a British Soldier. Sergeant Smith was the lone (unarmed- back in the day) Constable. I was the only Armed person on the Island, always having my Sterling Sub Machine Gun slung over my shoulder... now I better understand why my one Beliken a day was always ‘No charge John.’ We Soldiers were all in our teens. Do you remember in those days we had ONE Telephone (near the Police station) for the entire Island. As the Resident’ Soldier I had a full range of my own Communications equipment which on occasion (when requested) I’d order a RAF Puma Helicopter for a San Pedrano needing Emergency treatment on the mainland.... we all worked together in our lovely San Pedro ‘Village.’ ... John Boston

Yes Smithy nice guy in those days we only needed one policeman for d Island an yes witout a gun... Ena Varela Guerrero

When returning from our archaeological work on the north end in 1983, I was informed the police were looking for me....a bit un-nerving..I thought the night before had gone better than that.... They had arrested a guy were a ceramic replica of a Vercruz statue they thought he had looted. He had been stuck in the "little" room for almost 24 hours waiting for me. He was also, really, really happy when I confirmed that it was modern not ancient... The give away was the words "Hecho en Mexico" stamped on the bottom! ... Thomas Guderjan
