FriFotos: The Golden Northern Cayes

When I hear “gold” I think of all the wonderful sunsets I’ve enjoyed on the Northern Cayes this month, particularly on Caye Caulker. It’s been a blessing to be able to take a break from my writing and just walk outside at 5:00pm to witness all this natural beauty, right at my doorstep. Many thanks to my Ambergris and Caye Caulker hosts, for their support and assistance this month as I worked on my first guidebook chapter, particularly my Caye Caulker friends who gave me a safe, calm place to write and meet my first challenge. I did it! And I surely will miss everyone as I move on to other parts of the country soon.

Hope your Friday is golden!

    You photos just always really move me… I know this is probably a corny suggestion, but have you ever considered having calendars made featuring your photos? I know I would buy them!

    Thanks so much Lovenia! I actually thought about it last year but never got around to it. You’re right, I should do one for the upcoming year! Thanks for your comments & support!
