We (Eric, Cara, Sabrina, Jack, Lauren and Janet) first went cave tubing in St. Herman's Cave at Blue Hole National Park. Our guides, Edgar and Melito, were nice, informative, helpful and funny. If any pics turn out from this we'll add them later.
|After cave tubing we headed over to the Blue Hole itself.|
|This is obviously not the famous Blue Hole that is in the ocean.|
|This Blue Hole is a natural spring that forms a river.|
|The water is cool, refreshing, and crystal clear.|
|This panorama (a little distorted) shows how the river bends around, and it then disappears into a cave.|
|A beautiful red dragonfly that landed nearby|
|Jack and Lauren at the Blue Hole.|
|This is where the river disappears into a cave.|
|A cacao tree - this is where chocolate comes from.|
|A Cohune Palm Tree, the leaves of which are popular for thatch roofs.|
|On the way home we stopped at The Country Barn for some really good ice cream.|
|It has lovely grounds there.|
|This shows the grounds after the many busloads of kids left.|
|There are three of these birds that live near the house, and they are getting bolder. This one is |
right outside our front door.
