Hello all,
I enjoyed a Jimmy Buffett concert in Philadelphia this past weekend. During the break, Jimmy showed a video about his experiences with Johnny Carson. I believe (disclaimer: Margaritaville tequila drinks were involved) Jimmy mentioned seeing Johnny after Johnny's retirement (1992) when both Jimmy and Johnny had their boats at a caye in Belize. Just curious, anyone know where in Belize that might have been?

I saw Buffet some time back and he related the same story.... I do not where it was, but Buffet has been to AC at least a few times.....

LaurieMar and I saw Jimmy in San Jose back in April. He relayed the same story too, but don't know details. When he talked about Ambergris Caye - Laurie and I gave out a big shout (WOOO HOOO!) - we were headed there just 2 1/2 weeks later. Folks looked at us funny and we laughed. Oh, um, there were libations involved that evening too laugh

If my failing memory serves me, Mr. Buffet's visits to AC generally coincide with the presence of another singer/song writer who happens to have a home south of San Pedro Town. They are friends who have known each other for many years.

Thanks for the info. Who is the other singer/songwriter?...not that it is any of my business, but I am intrigued by the whole story. I can imagine Jimmy in AC, but Johnny?...I picture him more in Palm Springs or such like.

Yeah, it's JJW. We ran into him 12 years ago on our first trip to SP. Had conch chowder lunch with him in Fidos.

Still run into him perhaps once or twice a year in SP, but never during "Camp Walker". Too damn crowded.

Go to his website and read the background and you'll understand the Buffet connection

I read that, I like that place as well... although the drinks are a bit more expensive, it's nice.
