Angel and Genaro Nunez with Annie (Nunez) Eiley in a boat in San Pedro, August 1958

San Pedro with my brothers Angel (on the left) and Genaro. Good memories. Annie Eiley

Oh my goodness. This takes me back to our good old days living on the beach with our dad who was a fisherman at that time. It is very nice to be able to see oneself as a child and his activities! 1958 in front of our home on the beach. (Me front, Sister Anita Eiley, Brother Genaro Crusher Nunez) My dad had a small dory, this one and a small sailing boat. With them he raised his family and gave us three the best of life. Our beach home was destroyed by Hurricane in 1961. In 1971 Government acquired the village for the villagers and the beach properties were sold for 500 dollars, middle street four hundred and back street now Pescador for 300 dollars.

This pic must have been after Hurricane Janet in 1955 and before Hurricane Hattie in 1961. A Canadian friend of my dad's wanted a pic of my family doing something so my sister came out with her pan of freshly Johnny cakes and my brother, Genaro Crusher and I poled the dory on land. I must have made 300 or 400 trips with my dad to his fishing site with this dory. Notice the flat bottom. This was to give it more stability since my dad had to pull up his lobster pats unto this little dory. It was a dugout, meaning dug from one huge log or tree trunk. Our beach, right at the foot of Tackle Box Bar was about 150 feet wide in 1960 before the hurricane . Today it has suffered quite some erosion. If my dad had kept that property he would have paid 500.00 $$ for it. Today my inheritance would have been about 5 500.000.00 U. S. My sister' roots are Lincoln, Ellis John, Dennis and Alex Eiley etc. My brothers roots are Smile, Jason, Genso and Julious Nunez. Our dad raised us on fishing. My personal life experiences take me back to 1950 or 70 years ago but my readings and research take me all the way to 1848 when the Mestizos of Yucatan, Mexico settled on Ambergris Caye. Angel Nunez
