Hardly hard work, I love looking at all of these pictures.
I pick up at the end of August.
I took a trip to Placencia for the first time ever to see the caye, Harvest Caye, that was sold to Norwegian Cruise Lines and will be developed as a cruise ship port. UGH.
The area is so beautiful. Dolphins raced us as we made our way over to the Caye, just a short ride from Placencia.
I also developed a bit of a food and beach crush on Placencia. What a beautiful place to visit (or live). Here’s the colorful deck at Barefoot Bar.
And one more town north I found the best food in Belize…at Maya Beach Bistro and Hotel. A key lime pie…just one of the desserts I tasted. IF they have the Banana Coconut Cream Pie when you are there EAT IT. If they don’t, return as much as you can, beg them constantly about it and then EAT IT. It. is. Amazing.
I returned to San Pedro and the most terrifying thing I’ve seen on the island – a massive fire at Ramon’s Village. (See here for the rebuilding.) Watching it that night, I was certain that this fire would spread quickly.
Later that week, my friend LouAnn and I got a cooking lesson from one of San Pedro’s best, Miss Jennie from Elvi’s Kitchen.
And you MUST try the Coconut Pie AND the Frozen Key Lime Pie at Elvi’s. You will thank me.
I had a long fun day in Belize City for the Nationwide Trade Show – The Belize Market Expo (it was LOTS more fun than it sounds)…
Nicolai won a sun visor for his imaginary car at Plinko.
And then went to the HUGE September 10th carnival celebration.
…flying over the Blue Hole…
I spent a few too many days in Cancun on my return, sick but able to visit the gorgeous new Maya Museum twice.
This is getting ridiculous…I am in about…oh Mid October. I still have the Belikin Calendar Launch, the amazing Raggamuffin sail down to Placencia, Halloween in San Pedro…
Reminiscing is serious business.
