At the top of the observation tower of the research station at Glover's Reef.
But not before stocking up on some (OK, lots) of excellent (and cheap) Belize rum!
Getting there was no fun; motorsailing straight into 15-20 knots and 4-6' seas. Broke a rigging fitting due to the constant pounding but managed to get it fixed in Guanaja, Honduras, thanks to helpful cruisers and locals. While there we had a couple of very enjoyable social evenings. Best was in a little beach bar in the torrential rain; the German owner and his son cooked us pizzas on the outside bbq - at one point the grease in the pan of bacon exploded due to the raindrops; while we sat at the bar in the semi-dark drinking beer, chatting and watching a rat tentatively make his way down the kitchen wall to try to grab some of the pizza fixings - he didn't get any 'til after we were finished. Ended the evening drinking homemade Jamaica Berry wine (Derek, not the rat...).
Sometimes it just doesn't work out like you thought....
After leaving San Andres we continued south and stopped at the remote Albuqurque Cays for 8 days. A couple of small islands behind a 4 km reef, 25 nm south of San Andres. There were no other cruising boats there - anchored about 1/4 mile to the north of the northern cay right on the edge of a sand bank in about 6' of water. There is a Colombian military detachment (about 20 guys in their early twenties wearing a random collection of gym shorts) there which we visited to check in. Had the tour of the island from the only guy who spoke even a few words of English - very friendly. The rest of the detachment were busy watching daytime soaps on satellite TV! We snorkeled (suits not required) every day and saw lots of interesting fish including a very active and curious 6' reef shark. Right off the back of the boat we watched thousands of tangs getting together in their mating aggregation. And there were a couple of sand tilefish that we watched doing their very sensuous mating moves. It was quite the voyeuristic show!
