I am sitting here at my computer with the room swaying with jet lag as I haven't been to sleep for the last 30 hours (3 planes home - and I can never sleep on a plane!) but just had to get on the message board and say what a fantastic holiday we've just had! It was the best holiday ever! -
Snorkelling with Nurse Sharks and Sting Rays, Fishing and Barbecueing our catch on the beach with Capt. Bicho and his son, Watching loggerhead turtles and Manatees, Chicken Drop at Piers Lounge (Steve at Coconet - I won't forgive you for telling me you drop the chicken from the 3rd floor!), Breakfast's at Estel's, Taking our catch around to Papi's and him cooking our snapper in garlic and wine, Falling into the sea with my passports in my hand and only thinking of them so all anybody saw was an arm in the air saving them as I went under, fully clothed (what a laugh!), Wild Seahorse watching, crocodiles, iguanas, Pina Coladas at Captain Morgan's, Kayaking at Ramon's Village, Climbing Ancient Mayan Ruins in the blazing sun and not being able to walk properly for 3 days afterwards as I'd used muscles I didn't know I'd got(!), Feeling like James Bond as we sped round the mangroves in the boat, Walking down the middle of middle street after a cloud burst trying not to slip on the white sandy mud, The line of happy children queing to see Santa as he gave them an apple and a little book, Crab in garlic butter at Caramba's, lazing on our balcony waving at the passing golf carts with our belikins in our hands, Coconut Chicken curry at Jambel's Jerk Pit, Grilled lobster feasts, splashing through rain puddles in golf carts, happy Belizean children laughing and playing with their bikes they had been given for Christmas, fantastic rainbows, my husband being zapped by an electric ray (mustn't laugh!), beautiful sunsets on the end of patajo's jetty or on the hand pulled ferry, a belikin at Butch's bar then home to our little beach house then to end it all, as it had started that awesome flight from San Pedro to Belize City - and a million and one more things that at the moment, as my head is spinning, I can't recall but I will live it all again as my head hits the pillow at any moment.
We will be back and thank you to everybody who gave us such good advice from the message board and for everybody on AC for making us so welcome!
