Diving is closed this weekend so Keith rented a bit more of a posh boat than we usually have. The seats are cushioned and there is music. We took the time to cruise slowly down the river and if you closed your eyes for a minute you could almost think you were in the amazon or something.

Most of the wildlife we could see where birds. I love the pelicans and had a good time taking photos of them.

The end of the river for us is marked with a halt sign by order of the marines but there is plenty of graffiti on the wall indicating people don't always follow that rule.

We passed a guy fishing with a bow and arrow. That was quite different but he was actually catching huge fish - he showed us a popano.

After our tour of the river we went by a place called hospital caye where Abby, Debbie and Steve took the opportunity to jump off the pier.
