A Day in Hectic Belize City and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Yesterday, Christmas eve, I had an errand to run in Belize City.  For some reason it did not occur to me that the city would be PACKED with last minute shoppers.  Hardly a taxi to be found, four cruise ships in port, apple & pear stands EVERYWHERE (they are a Belize tradition for the holidays), Christmas music blasting from most store fronts and just people out and about, traveling, everywhere.

The park next to Brodie’s, empty.  The main street in front?  Packed.

ALL the fishing boats were here at port.

A hectic crazy day…I had planned to be back on the 130pm boat but with traffic…and the rush.  I made it on a PACKED 3pm.  They sent two boats.

And when we arrived in San Pedro…a huge crowd was waiting to board.

A few pictures from San Pedro last night and then it’s off to help Finn with his “soup kitchen” here in town.  With the help of many, a few hundred people will received toys, gift baskets, turkey, ham, stuffing and more…

The best idea for the holidays.

A cold front has blown in…and the wind is from the north, the current temperature 72.  Feeling properly Christmas-y.

I hope you all have a very very very happy day.  And long weekend.

Around the corner at Cholo’s to catch the Coastal Xpress…

And a full house at Lily’s even at 815pm.  ‘Tis the season.
