It’s summertime and even if that means hurricane season in Belize and the Caribbean, it still doesn’t disappoint. These are just a few scenes on Belize’s Northern Cayes (Caye Caulker, San Pedro and Half Moon Caye) that remind me of summer.

Stay tuned for more in my upcoming, full-color, 390-page edition of MOON BELIZE, due out in November 2013 (in both print and ebook formats), available now for pre-order.
