You're welcome Diane!
I just want to add that consumer items in general, including food, on caye caulker are expensive and often difficult to get. Everything has been flown or barged in. I think people who move here from elsewhere either learn to make do with less, or get used to not having stuff they are used to getting or they get frustrated and leave. Shopping is like a scavenger hunt and over the course of years (yes years, not weeks) you find connections for things you want / need. There is no way to search the web for this stuff though Facebook is bringing it somewhat in to the open. One person brings in greens, another fruit. Someone makes coconut oil. Not people who own stores, just people making stuff or buying bulk and sharing. They aren't (always) making a profit, just sharing expenses with friends, though sometimes it's a person's living. Mostly, it's hard to prepare for life here using the internet. You have to spend time and create relationships. It can be frustrating but it's why many of us love Caye Caulker.
