We met our friends, Mac and Julie in Houston on the 24th and caught our Continental flight at 11:50 or so. Everything went well on the flight except when the beverage cart came around, the stewardess didnt know how to make a rum punch....Im glad I didnt ask for a panty ripper. I would hate to have been escorted to security when we landed. Get to Belize City and go through customs, which was extremely easy and quick. I go to check in for my 2:40 Tropic Air flight(it's now 2:05), and she tells me we are on the 2:15 flight...I'm excited, but Beth is a little disappointed because we wouldnt have time to go see Jet..Oh well, we'll get to see him on the way out...The flight was nice and easy, after the girls self-medicated. We land and go to get our luggage, only to find out one of Mac's bags will be on the next plane. No problem , we walk over to BC's(1 block) and have our first rounds of Belikins and Panty Rippers. I see this couple across the bar from us, and after a few minutes of contemplation, I yell out, "Capricorn?" as I couldnt remember their names...It was indeed Regan and Merritt, and we talked for a few minutes. They seem to be truly in tune with the island life, not just the business side of it, and are definitely an asset to AC...After promising to come see them later, we go get our luggage and take a cab to Seven Seas. Jermaine(very nice) got us checked in and all settled. The case of Belikin we ordered had been in the fridge for a day already, and was very cold. a good way to start, anyway..the rooms are OK, we had the bedroom and Mac and Julie had the fold-out sofa in the den..full kitchen with everything, blender included....we hit the beach and the pool, and I think the 4 of us finished that case in about 3 hours(remember they are 9 ounce beers, and Mac and I are pretty big guys..)went up on the roof for sunset, that has to be one of the best places on the island to watch it...walked down the beach around 8 or so. We heard music coming from Fido's and were starving by this point, so we went and sat in the open-air section. the wind was blowing and all was good.Pisiano(sic) made his nightly appearance. Barefoot Skinny and guests were having their usual good time on stage, and then the food came. Very good. I think we all shared each others, but I remember Lobster Ceviche, an awesome Scallops appetizer, and a combo plate with fish, shrimp, scallops, and Lobster...after a few more rounds of drinks the traveling caught up to us and we headed back on foot...remembering the rule of right foot in water-North, we made it back safely...I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow...

Does Louis still work the office at Seven Seas? He was there in 2000 and made our stay there a blast.
