Sarteneja To Crooked Tree

After a reasonable sleep we were ready for action ... the yachting regatta.

Well we did go down and have a look but there was not a lot happening as far as spectator sport goes so we opted to continue to Crooked Tree.

Negotiating the potholes back to Orange Walk was my job so there was no time to sit back and relax on that part of the road. 

Crooked Tree is a sanctuary for bird watching, the Crooked Tree Lodge is a very nice place indeed in a beautiful location and a great setup with a bar and cabins etc.

Full credit to the owner Mick and Angie they have a great slice of paradise which they share it with the world. 

We camped the night there on a GRASSY area (note USA that is how it is meant to be) and didn’t even remove the GPS or SPOT etc as the place is very secure. 

We walked into town to have a look around, the people were very friendly and we ended up having an early tea there of chicken and fries, basic but nice.

This guy wasn't on the menu tho 

Returning to the lodge we settled in for some drinks with Mick and some locals which was cool, to be honest I would loved to have stayed there at least another night so this place come highly recommended for travelers who want to be slightly out of the main town is a quiet place. 

If you want to find it easily here are the GPS co-ords ... you will love it.

We did get lost as one sign is broken and we rode past the turnoff into a sandpit

Couple of pictures from a piece of paradise.

Don't take our word for it go see for yourself!!!
