Happy Thanksgiving From Ambergris Caye, Belize

Happy Thanksgiving – a holiday not really celebrated by Belizeans but adopted a bit locally due to the influx of American residents and visitors.


Plus – Food and football.  Friends, family, gratitude.  The one holiday where The Peanuts cartoons don’t annoy me.

It’s just good stuff.  And I could go on and on about what I’m grateful for…I mean SERIOUSLY.   But I’ll just attach this New York Times article that a friend shared yesterday about the subject – Choose to be Grateful.   I like it very much.

Oh…and one store has embraced the idea of Black Friday -for the second year.  Super funny.  Here are Finn K and his dad pretending to be Americans last year.


I hope you all have a fabulous day.  It is currently…pouring rain in San Pedro.  POURING ALL NIGHT.   It’s no official holiday here.  And the set-up for Christmas will continue if it just stops raining!

Central Park.  Over the next few days, she will be covered with lights.


Belize Bank is all asparkle – with Christmas carols playing since Monday.


HAPPPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!  Here’s one more.  Not annoying!

    Wish I was there rain or not.I think the black Friday cartoon is funny. NO way will I wait in line overnight for a store to open.
