LOTs of Sun, Snorkelling, Sparkling Ocean and A Few Goose Bumps on the Rum Punch 2
The skipping record continues…today is a fantastically gorgeous day. Here’s a picture of the sunrise my friend Ellen took this morning just to prove it.
It’s going to be a beauty just like yesterday. And I know ALL about yesterday. I spent lots and lots of outdoor time over the water on one of my favorite trips – sailing northward to Mexico Rocks snorkeling site with Captain George Eiley and the Rum Punch 2.
We met our good captain and his trusty first mate in town at 10am on a gorgeous GORGEOUS Sunday morning.
The Rum Punch, an old Belizean fishing boat turned touring craft, was ready to sail.
The Rum Punch pirate flag was flapping in the wind…
We set sail to the north.
And the beautiful view cruising along. We were really moving yesterday…
We pulled up to Mexico Rock…a huge swimming pool like area dotted with coral heads. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY.
Tara went in…
There were a few more boats…
And the captain made his delicious ceviche. This time with horse conch.
Back south with a stop at everyone’s favorite bar…Palapa Bar.
Hurry! To the shade. But smile first!
The bar was packed.
People and dogs enjoying the beautiful view…
Beer buckets were being lowered to the tubers.
In Belize we call this da cold seed.
