Skywatch Friday...Belize sunset



To enjoy more beautiful skies from around the world click on my SKYWATCH link. You can click on some pictures for a larger image.


I took this sunset picture from the back of our ship as we were leaving Belize. We were on a western Caribbean cruise and we stopped at Belize for a day. Belize was wonderful we arranged an excursion which was cave tubing. Our tour guides picked us up at the cruise terminal and we got a little tour of Belize on our way to the river for tubing. This is when I saw my Belize lifers the Gray necked wood rail and I saw the beautiful Vermillion Flycatcher. We hiked thru jungle a bit carrying our tubes, I heard all kinds of birds on the hike but we were on a mission to do our cave tubing. After tubing we had lunch at the resort and enjoyed the resorts butterfly farm.

Gray necked wood rail.. our tour driver stopped so I could take a picture of this lifer.





Cave tubing







A big thanks to everyone who puts Skywatch Friday together for all of us to enjoy.
Also thank you for looking at my sunset picture and my blog.
