Cheri forgot to mention Axeman-- What a guy.. He is one to hang out with, we had a lot of fun with him, only spent the 1st two days of his visit with him, then he went to a 2 day trip to the blue hole and had a great time... He was there back with us on the last day and sent us off at the airport.. What a guy.... Also we met little Max at the Easter BBq at the Palapa, he was a hoot and his family was very nice, too. He spent the day with our little friend there Del Rio, and the caught a Iguana while there...We'll post another trip report soon... Thanks, Rick

Rick/Cheri...the BBQ was great...including the wings. Although not a "tour" like the rest of our days in AC..oure day in San Pedro and the 5 or so hours at the Palapa was a great experience for us (and Max), more like a real life cultural tour. I can now understand all the posts which go on an on about the people of AC...its more than the water and the beach and the fishing, etc. I don't think we met one unhappy person, for real. A magic place. Either Belize/AC draws happy people...or Belize/AC makes people happy...or some combination of both. Planning our next trip, of course. Need to make Edd Haskins proud with our fishing results next time. Max brought the "tail" home.
