{belize} san pedro sights

October 7, 2017

After visiting the smaller and less developed Caye Caulker, we made our way over to Ambergris Caye via ferry. Ambergris Caye’s capital is San Pedro, which Madonna sang about. We arrived late in the evening and then spent the next couple of days exploring this fancy town. Compared to Caye Caulker, I was completely surprised by all the the vehicles on the island. This is completely necessary in San Pedro though because Ambergris Caye is so much bigger than Caye Caulker.

Some of the sights we saw were the ultra fancy resorts along the coast, the local artisan market, which was pretty empty since it was low season, and the rays just swimming around all over the place!

{sf} alameda beach parties

September 4, 2017

This weekend has been so incredibly warm throughout the entire Bay Area. San Francisco, which is known for being notoriously chilly reached temperatures of over 100 degrees! Homes (except for new luxury condos) in San Francisco really aren’t that equipped for such high temperatures so it was pretty torturous both inside and out! In good news, the beach was a lovely place to relax and enjoy the warm weather. Of course, most of the Bay Area had the same idea.

It so happened that yesterday was a friend’s birthday weekend so I actually crossed the Bay Bridge and went to Alameda for some beach time, some volleyball in the sand, and some happy birthday time with friends.

Cabrillo National Monument is beautiful part of San Diego that sits on the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula. This national monument commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542. For this reason, you can see a rather grand statue Cabrillo. There’s also a relatively new trail that leads you down along the coast and an old lighthouse. The best part is a chance to visit the tidepools on the other side of Point Loma. The worst part is that during San Diego summer, the tidepools are underwater during the national monument’s open hours. What a disaster! Oh well, I guess I’ll have to come here again next time!
