Hi Big Al,

Sorry, no story to submit. I just registered today, this is my 1st post (insert sound of cork popping). Sure liked that hat tale ! (do I get a vote? wink )

Anyhoo just posting to let you know, I'll be a first timer as well. I'm gonna be there w/ my family in July ... Sat 7/19 to Sun 7/27 ... perhaps we'll bump into each other? May have to do some logistics & meet for a beer. Maybe I'll get motivated & start a thread about it: July travelers ...

Just wanted to dip my feet in, so to speak, & say HI! to all. Really appreciate all the good info I've gotten here lurking about and searching for info off these boards over the last few days. A real good bunch of people here. In the meantime, see ya on the sands cool

Ok do not duck and run from another story from Chloe. Will try to tell something new, since this board is speckled with our many days on Ambergris.

Planned a no nothing day of rest and relaxation from previous 10 full days of tours and activity.

Each one of the 5 in the group got up at different times, staggered out to find food.

Our Artist, came back from food run, with paints, she had bought at the hardware stores, and a bucket of black she borrowed from a local sign painter on Front street.

Finally the Artist carried out all the drift/collected wood/sticks, and tree branches she had collected over the past 10 days, driving us nuts stacking this in the boat and in our rooms. We poked fun at her, saying watch out she will gouge out your good eye, and oh look another perfect stick.

Now all of SunBreeze was involved in this art class in the courtyard, housekeeping finding rags, others wanting to know what is this, and a cutepie little precocious girl in training to run the resort, had to PAINT. Well the painting was off and running. We that love the Artist tried to show interest, taking directions on which stick to base coat in an important color.

Ok, the kvetching started, Artist said we drank all her tea, and ate all her limes, but had not done much in getting those sticks painted. Like we cared! The words were flying, so we four not degreed Artists, took off w/o permission.

Three grandkids and gramma rented a golf cart,
rode south looking for the Croc and Wish Willy.
Still fussing over the Artist's attitude, and one word lead to another, by the time we got to the Caye dumpsite. We decided to get off the cart and beat the crap out of each other, talked about it so much, burning up the anger, we got happy and laughed at what the local paper headlines would read. Old Texas Gramma Beatup in Dump by dumbass Kids.

We took turns driving the cart, while others critiqued our driving, and fussed because our cart did not have the big lug type tires.
Wore that trip thin, stopped for a great lunch at Caliente's. Found the nerve to return to the Artist, which was still hard at work, finishing the last of the sticks.

Surprise, we all were thrilled with the results, and the name tags she had for each stick, to be given to many of our favorite local people, that had made our visit on Ambergris the best vacation. Of course we slackers wanted our names on the tags too, imagine that!

Some of those painted sticks are still on display in San Pedro, Thanks to Cyndy.

rush of water past my boat slip slip into soft island time sunlight ray swims past my mask reading paperbacks as I bask in depths of blue at eighty feet flickering fish catch the light just right as I swim swim through tunnels dark as nightlife dining crickets song and gecko chirps mingle with (panty)ripping sounds of punta and laughter here abounds we happy lovers pass the church afternoon adventure is a Satan search in golf carts that bounce and lurch as iguanas rumble into brush the basilisk more in a rush to find a shady palm to sleep: bliss is called a hammock here a lazy dog stops to scrach his ear in the road on downtown street where people walk in bare feet dawn comes early our boat arrives dashing fast we see our lives in history of ancient times Mayan ghosts sing from the trees howler monkeys fulfill the needs of godlike trees that hide this place and meet the seas with handshaking rivers snaking snaking through mangrove reeds. This is the place where my heart will live my soul finds this place with simple ease
home is here in my Belize.
