Day 9: Another Relaxing Day on Caye Caulker

Today was another peaceful day. They are beginning to blend together now and I lose track of what day and hour it is.
I watched a good movie this morning on tv then we went to check in for the Hol Chan reef tour and found it has been postponed until tomorrow due to the cloudy weather. On that news, Jon and I decided to just bum around the Caye another day.
We walked to Glenda's again this morning for our second attempt at ordering the cinammon rolls. They were tasty and what a steal- 4 rolls to share plus a quart of OJ for $3us.
After breakfast we *were* going to walk to the far end of the island out by the airstrip but I fell spectacularly in a sand puddle leftover from last night's rainstorm and got sand, water and mud all over me.
Lunch was at Rasta Pasta and although the food was terrible (first bad meal we've had on the entire trip) all hope was not lost.
After lunch we went back to the room- Jon read outside in the beach chair while I went back down to the end of the pier and napped for a few hours. Before sunset we took a long walk and covered a lot fo the island. We finally made it all the way down to the airstrip. We found the Coco Plum Gardens Gallery and dropped in.
Dinner was at Rose's grill. More lobster! We had a whole grilled lobster each, with salad and fries for $12us. I highly recommend the place.
We walked around a bit after that and came across another stray dog that I, of course, fell in love with. This one followed us back to our room. The longer I stay on the island the more attached to the dogs I become. I wish we could take them all home. The stray that followed us back to our room is sleeping outside our window right now. She must have been recently pregnant as she is still nursing. I wish there was at least an effort to round up the strays and spay/neuter them.
