It's taken me two weeks to get back into the rhythm of life here again (and acclimated to the cold weather here in WI - brrr) but back from a glorious week on AC. Spent the time every day sailing on the catamaran El Gato and snorkeling. Truly a pleasure! Stayed at Lily's and loved the porch in the morning. Up early every day usually waiting for sunrise and just watching the days begin - must be the salt water huh?. Quick breakfasts most mornings at Ruby's Deli. I am now HOOKED on johnny cakes. Dinners for the group at many different places - tried alot of local (kudos for all your inputs on this board, we used the guides extensively!!. Favorites were Jambel's Jerk Pit, the LC chicken Q, Los Cocos, Celi's and Waragumas (catch-of-the day fish burrito was to die for, ate here 3 times!) and most every night was coconut ice cream for dessert (and of course cold Belikin to top it all off). Also tried the street vendors one night, so much to choose from. Sailed and snorkeled all over - N. end at Mexico and Mata (?I think) Rocks to Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley and Coral Gardens to the S. Spent a day and sailed to Caye Caulker. Spent a half day fishing (or more acurately feeding the little ones!) though we did catch a few for beachside lunch. Spent another day with our trusty golf cart exploring the island - the pull ferry is a MUST and the N. end of the island is beautiful. Many birds and lots of wonderful smelling flowers. Even tried night snorkeling around the piers (that was an experience, saw 2 green morays). Phew, I'm wore out just writing it all down again. It was an AWESOME vacation!!
I am already dreaming of the next trip down..
