Our snorkeling adventures were coming to an end. It was time to go back to the tropical island. Sea sickness was becoming a factor. Some of our group got sick. It was definitely time to get back into the reality of being on land again.

The trip there got my stomach feeling a little off. The bumps and the jumping of the boat started to bother me. I knew I shouldn’t have eaten that burger before this trip. Even with all my sea sickness, it’s hard not to take in notice the beauty around us. The Caribbean sea is breathtaking. Crystal blue at times, then it becomes mixed with green. The pictures I took, does not give any justice to the sea. It’s something one must see in person.

We finally started to get close to the island. Our tour guide showed us around by doing a lap around Caye Caulker. Literally, it took us about ten minutes to go around the whole island. We got to see where are all the crazy parties were being held at. This island is a spring breaker’s paradise. Some many young people are going crazy and possibly getting alcohol poisoning. It reminded me of Miami Beach during Labor day weekend.
We eventually met up with some pelicans. These guys were something else. They were friendly but wanted us to throw food at them. The tour guides gave us fish and the Pelicans would follow us like cats chasing mice. After sometime, they became a little aggressive. We had to stop feeding them. Something about pelicans and fish reminded me of the movie Finding Nemo.
My stomach started to feel better and we were about to dock the boat. The tour guides all gave us some belizean beer. I’m not someone who likes beer. Alcohol has been something I don’t like to drink anymore. However, I was living in the moment. Tried it and to my surprised, this was some awesome beer! Not too bitter nor sweet. It was just right. It made feel like I was a Pirate for second. Then I came back into the real world. I was drinking beer and not rum. Nor was I looking for treasure. I was just enjoying the moment.
Once docked, we noticed a pelican followed us all the way to the dock. Felt bad for the thing and gave it some fish that our tour guide still had. This attracted several others and I pretty much opended Pandora’s box. They started fighting for more fish. The whol dock started get filled with hangery big birds. At that very moment, I made my escape from our group. Like a ninja covering up it’s tracks, I made sure I wasn’t going to get blamed for the mob of pelicans. Escaping this mess, it was off to explore the Island with the little time I had left.

Nice pics! I actually got to “pet” a pelican when I was in Port Aransas one time!
Trust me, I was eyeballing him the whole time! 🤣 Another time, in Louisiana, myself and a friend saved a pelican from fishing line. Poor guy was so scared and appreciative to be set free!
Lol well at least some of they are appreciative. It’s awesome you helped it. I could imagine how scared it must had been.
I live in the Caribbean! It’s so beautiful 🙂
This is grey stuff! Makes me want to travel more. Thanks for sharing and for following my blog also.
Wow, pelicans are so aggressive. I am sure I never feed them. I understand beer sometimes taste better when drinking it in different places. Why don’t you give it to the pelicans as well so that they feel happier? They might not care fish anymore after that. Thank you for sharing your adventure. This is interesting.
Sorry for your seasickness!! I felt that recently a bit in Malaysia, but fortunately it was only for a short trip. I love the photo of pelicans!
Nice beer, i never drink. Good travel!
What an adventure, and I can see why its a spring breaker’s paradise.
