Goff’s Caye

Sorry it’s been a few days. The internet was really bad during my last few days in Belize and it was hard to upload anything. Now I am back at home and getting ready to get back on the road. This is a photo of Goff’s Caye, a tiny but beautiful island I spent the day on last week. I just got a Go-Pro and am testing it out.

Another Island Sunset

Just another fabulous afternoon here on Caye Caulker in Belize. Hard to believe my vacation is almost overIMG_6692.

Sip N’ Dip

This is my favorite bar on the lovely island of Caye Caulker here in Belize. The beautiful Sip N’ Dip is situated out over the water and is a great place to have a drink in the late afternoon or early evening!

This is Frenchie’s Dive Shop out over the water here on Caye Caulker in Belize.

I like this old boat in front of an old Belizean house at Morgan’s Inn here on Caye Caulker.

The S.S. Minnow

I like this little boat moored out in front of where I’m staying here in Caye Caulker, Belize. There were so many different blues this evening.

Island Dock

Before the tourists found it, Caye Caulker was a sleepy little island full of fisherman. While it has changed a lot since those days, there are still a lot of docks and little fishing boats around.

Welcome to Belize

I am officially on vacation for the next few weeks! I know that this is my “American” photo blog, but I hope you won’t mind me sharing a few photos from my vacation. This one is on the northwest side of the island of Caye Caulker, my home for the next few weeks.

The Blue Front Cafe

The Blue Front Café in Bentonia, Mississippi is one of the very last of the real Juke Joints in Mississippi. On a rainy afternoon, I had the pleasure to meet and spend some time with Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, the owner. He says he opens pretty much every day because at least a few people stop in and want to see the place. He was very hospitable and a real gentleman. Like most people I seem to meet on the Blues Trail, he is in his 70s. I’m really glad I have gotten to see these places while they’re still around. Price of a Heineken at the Blue Front? $2.00!

Delta Restaurant

Unfortunately this place was closing up when I visited, but it sure looks like the kind of place that makes some serious food.

Rural Mississippi

I can only assume that these are old sharecropping cabins in the rural heart of the Mississippi Delta. This was somewhere along the old Moorehead-Belzoni Road.

More Delta Blues

Some of the towns across the Mississippi Delta are truly striking in their emptiness. They can really give a feeling of being forgotten or left behind. Whole Main Streets are just shells of businesses that used to be. Like this one here.
