After almost two weeks in Belize, including four nights on Caye Caulker, my friend Sharon and I had reservations to leave. We actually had reservations and tickets to return to the mainland via the water taxi that brought us there from Belize City. But so we could spend a few more hours on the island rather than sitting around in the airport because of schedules, we decided to fly there with Tropic Air in one of its 14-passenger Cessna Caravans. The trip took just 10 or 15 minutes.
Just a few feet from the landing strip was an Osprey nest, and an Osprey was sitting there. Taking advantage of the few minutes between check-in and flight time, I walked the few feet until I was directly under the nest.
