 The Wild Wild West

"In June, we seized a rare weather window, left the protection of the barrier reef, and aimed Ithaka for Glovers Reef, an atoll 27 miles from mainland Belize, famous for pristine coral beds. Rendezvousing with us at Glovers were Harold and Diane on Sea Camp, friends from Cuba who'd been sidelined in Isla rebuilding their rudder. We spent almost three weeks at Glovers, snorkeling through the labyrinth of colorful, shallow coral canyons, alive with riots of tropical fish, mantas, eagle rays and dolphin. Douglas said the scuba diving on the outside wall of the atoll was the best of his life, and every afternoon he and Harold took their spears, and hunted fish, conch and lobster for dinner."
