We were up really early – the sun was barely over the horizon when we were loaded into shallow boats to tour the lagoon. Leonard drove our boat which would periodically bog down in the shallow muck. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife in the lagoon, but especially about the birds. The people in our group are also very knowledgeable and plied him with really good questions. I should have boned up on the birdlife of Belize before coming here. I’m afraid a lot of it went over my head.
Most of the Canadians in the group had an early flight so we wolfed down our breakfasts and headed for the airport where we ended up sitting as our flights were delayed by at least an hour. Luckily our connecting flight in Houston was also delayed so we managed to make it home without incident.
