There have been some spectacular thunderstorms in the past few weeks: here's some lightning from last night. It was far away enough that we couldn't hear it, but it was rather impressive to watch.

Checo Hill

The view from Checo Hill - just a few minutes from the guesthouse through the jungle - is well worth the effort! We popped up the other day, just for a change of scene...

You get a fantastic view over Seven Miles / El Progresso from the top. You can even see Baldy Beacon, the highest hill in the Mountain Pine Ridge. I never get tired of this view...

We've been doing some gardening and tidying up recently. The place is looking pretty good... Good and green from the rainy season, too.

Passion fruit

A year or so ago we were given a small passion fruit vine from friends in Stann Creek District. It's finally flowering properly (when we can keep the caterpillars off it!) and we're hoping we might get some fruit soon. Exciting!
