On Sunday, August 9th, we split the group in 2 and Mariah, Greg, Mike, and I caught a boat in neighboring Sittee River Village to Glover’s Atoll, 40 miles off the coast (PHOTO 1: dolphin escort and PHOTO 2: 9 acre NE Caye, our home for the week). We walked sandy trails shaded by palms and lined with shells (PHOTO 3) and lived in little thatched cabins over the water (PHOTO 4). We were without electricity and running water for the week and cooked simple, delicious meals on a little gas stove (PHOTO 5: rice, melon, fresh snapper). PHOTO 6 shows a sunrise from our deck with Mariah and Greg’s cabin on the left. PHOTOS 7 to 15 highlight some of our favorite activities on Glover’s. It was a remarkable week and we hope to return someday. HAPPY TRAILS!
