We have had our 1:10,000 super lucky day right here at Caye Caulker! Please browse through the other photos in this series and little stories👇
Pic 1: Showing a villager scoping the sands some 200m off the coast, working on some fill construction project🚣♂️. The villagers who were hanging nearby told us this man was only 40 years old. (The life hardship and sun🌞 exposure made him looked older than he was.) He has been working the project for many months. We waved👋 at him to say hello and he returned us with a glance. Gambatte kudasai!!!👐 .
Pic 2 and 3: Some young villagers returned from conch harvesting🎣. There was a bag full of conchs. The boys were more than friendly to continue a conversation and showed us how they released the conch meat skillfully.
Pic 4: Out of sudden, one of the boys burst out laughing🤣🤣🤣! They then started to chat in their language in a very exciting pace. The boy was holding a orangy tear- drop, pearl-like thingy. 🤓 "What's that?" "Conch pearl! Conch pearl!" Exclaimed the boy😁. The other older boy came nearer, put it on his palm and showed it to us. He told us that it's some 1:10,000 (fact checked, accurate) chance to come across a conch pearl. It fetches a good market price. Guess it was not only their 1:10,000 lucky day but ours too😉. .
Pic 5: The baby conchs that are not ready for harvesting will return to the sea.
