Snapshot Sunday: My Week Jungle to Reef in Belize

Sometimes you just feel lucky.  And this past week or so has been one of those times.  I went from spelunking the ATM cave in the Cayo District of Belize (yes…I said spelunking) and watching gorgeous toucans as I enjoyed breakfast to sitting on a sandbar on the leeward side of Ambergris Caye and eating gorgeousKeep reading »

Mymula Ceviche and A Film Star: Lunch at Hurricane’s Ceviche Bar

I have walked past it 1000x but just recently, I’ve been asking around town about THE BEST CEVICHE.  And Hurricane’s CEVICHE Bar keeps popping up. Oddly, though, they have been around for about 5 years now, I’ve never eaten there.  But yesterday, with the sun out and the breeze blowing, it seemed like a perfectKeep reading »

Finally! A Weekend in Belize: Sharks GALORE in the Blue Hole & Much More

Morning guys,  Last month, before his trip to Ambergris Caye, a diver (and I later found out – FANTASTIC photographer) contacted me with just a few questions about living on Ambergris Caye.  After his trip, we chatted briefly again and I checked out his website,  saw some of his pictures and practically begged him to writeKeep reading »

Moments in San Pedro, Belize Over This Past Week

The weather this week has been pretty gorgeous on Ambergris Caye.  The municipal elections are over (phew!), the sargasso algae/seaweed is at an all-time high level and, as usual, there is plenty going on to keep me busy in San Pedro.  Here are some pictures from around the island.  If you run into me anywhereKeep reading »

Gorgeous Weather, Good Eats and Cute Spots in San Pedro

This week’s weather in San Pedro has been absolute perfection.  Cool in the morning and evening and warm sun all day.  A bit breezy the last day or two but now I’m just getting nit-picky. Yesterday by a private home by Mata Grande Grocery Store (about 5 miles north.) Me and Elsie the wonder dog onKeep reading »

A Hodgepodge on ANOTHER Gorgeous Day

Yesterday was a perfect Friday end to a gorgeous week.  I mean GORGEOUS and…I’ve been harping on it each and every day.  Really rubbing it in your faces. 🙂 But as Winter Storm Iola rolls into the Northeast, a cold front, probably the very same, has moved over San Pedro and today’s skies are grey…it’sKeep reading »

Boogie’s Belly and a Beauty Expo in San Pedro, Belize

Yesterday I had a few things to do.  And after whining about the weather in yesterday’s post,  the grey morning turned into a pretty spectacular afternoon. Love when that happens. And while in town, I stopped by Boogie’s Belly (I am waiting for the t-shirts!) for lunch.  Their facebook page and their morning post luredKeep reading »

Brunch Is For Jerks? Pffft. Sunday Morning At Estel’s Dine By The Sea

The New York Times recently published an infuriating though I think tongue-in-cheek opinion piece titled “Brunch is For Jerks.”  An article arguing that this favorite weekend meal is for those who are looking to avoid adulthood and responsibility – for those that want to fritter away their entire Sunday with boozy “breakfast cocktails” and fancy food. HOWKeep reading »
