Last night we rode our bikes into town and met our friend David for taco night and half-price margarita night at Caliente.  We got a great table on the deck and enjoyed the breezes, company, fantastic food, and potent margaritas.

On our ride into town, we passed a few golf carts.  Some friendly folks on one of them yelled out "We read your blog!"  They also said that they really liked our food photos, so we've made sure to include plenty in this posting.

There is a wonderful view from Caliente's deck, and the clouds over the sea had a pink glow from the sunset over the lagoon side of the island.  There was a great breeze as well.  Ahhhhhhh....

Just when we were wondering if David missed the Coastal Express water taxi to town, he showed up.  Turns out they did almost miss stopping at the dock near his house north of the bridge and had to double back around to pick him up, as he furiously waved his arms!

I got my favorite dish here -- fish tacos.  These are only available at lunchtime normally, but also on Friday nights.  Barry and David both got chicken dishes.  Everything looked really nice and tasted great too!

David decided to splurge with some dessert -- he tried the flan, which looked really good.  I am definitely getting it next time.  Barry and I split a bowl of coconut ice cream that was delicious.  So good we forgot to take a photo -- or was that the margaritas talking?

Flan -- yum!
We sipped margaritas and chatted it up until about 9:15, much to my surprise as this is quite late for us, but David has a lot of funny stories to tell.  He then had to skedaddle to catch the 9:30 water taxi, so Barry and I hit the road on our bikes.

Once we got north of the bridge, we fired up our headlamps.  The headlamp I brought to Belize had died on me, so I recently got a new one and was trying it out for the first time.  The new one (Black Diamond Sprinter) is really cool as it has a red blinky light in back, and the front LED is seriously bright.  No one will miss seeing us when I'm using it!

It was a nice quiet ride back to our condo on a dark, starry night.  We are happy that the "high season" here on Ambergris Caye is now behind us.  It makes going into town so much more pleasant!

Sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night.

Hi Emily,

Finally got around to checking your blog. Love the layout and the fotos (because there's lotsa food?). Anyway, as you might know, we spent a week over there on the north end at Debbie's Beach a short time ago and really had an enjoyable time.

I like Ambergris Caye a lot more now after that and a couple other trips. Still, it's nice to come back home to sleepy Corozal.

I'll follow your adventures.

Cheers,
Dave

Yep, read about your trip and saw photos on your blog, Dave, and realized how close you were. That beach house is just a hop, skip, and a jump down the beach from our condo. Come say hello next time you make the trip over to AC! It was really busy here up through Easter, but now it's a lot sleepier, which we like as well!
