|Blackadore Caye - Leeward Side|
This lucky dude got to take a trip out to Blackadore with some friends this past week - an fairly exclusive deal since no one is really allowed on the island. Charlie and Said captained our vessel (the mighty Koda). Karen (check out her photography via her photography site or Facebook) got us on the island since she is the photographer with the power. Matt, Sara, Robyn, and I were lucky enough to come along for the ride. Perhaps next time I'll bring a real blogger along with me so you all can get a truly professional take on the island and not just hear random musings of an 'untalented hack that apparently breaks all the rules of blogging' and really just tends to anger a certain travel writer with every key stroke (by the way I've purchases those new whiz free Cheerios...but don't know where to deliver them?!). So be advised - what follows is largely un-proofed, un-researched, and completely unsupervised!

I know everyone's first question - and yes, of course I peed on Leo's new island! Unfortunately I've since been informed that doesn't actually make it mine. Square one again on the ownership front.
Blackadore Caye is currently a basically untouched bit of paradise. Picturesque shore lines, dry cracked useless soil in the middle, with a rather impressive expanse of savanna style "grass lands" in the middle - so tall only one of our party could see over to the ocean (an entire 50 yards away).

|Said, Charlie, Guillermo - people that|
make the world go round.
PS - I apologize to Mr. DiCaprio for calling him "Leo", I hate it when people call me "Ken". So when you come down and we go diving together I'll let you call me Ken for an hour. I'll also bake you a pie.
