I have always laughed at people who ask me that question and then don’t get it when I explain it to them we found a place that we love and why tempt fate with going to another country. Oh well your loss is our gain!
We are going to do this trip report different as we pretty much hit all the old haunts that we have done in the past (if it isn't broken don't fix it is our mantra) so this time we are going to let the pictures speak for the trip. We did make a trip to the mainland and I am going to work on an official trip report when I have some time. On a side note, we had a blast finally meeting those who I have shared keyboard conversations with over the past year and here is to many many more trips down to the island that everyone loves. One funny story though that I want to share with the class;
KC Cart Diver and I were talking at the split @ Cauker on Saturday and were talking about the group that made the trip that day and he remarks how good of friends everyone is and that is pretty special in today’s society. I remark that technically other than TQ and Taco because of the February trip, I just formally met everyone either today or last night from the cruise as we all have a common bond being the island, the reef and or its people. He looks at me and remarks “Dude I got to get on that board, this is wild!”

So with that I thank all of those who made Shawna, Maria and my trip so great this time and we look forward to seeing you if not in February but another time. I keep saying that each trip gets better and better and also harder and harder for us to not want to go back home, one of these days you Ex-Pats and Belizeans are going to be stuck with us!
And now the pictures http://www.pbase.com/carbunkletrumpet/belize_november_08

But why eat my vegetables I already know that I am short!

Oh Scuba...I'm growing into the handle every year, but thanks!

Actually, the nickname Chunky belongs to my partner in crime, true name Arthur. His mom thought he was a chunky little baby, and the name has stuck for almost 60 yrs!
