Visited AC and the mainland just over a week ago. It was beautiful beyond belief!

Had such an amazing time that even being stranded overnight in Charlotte, NC airport on the way home with my 5 year old (and my other kid, aka my spouse)--and coming home to 15 inches of snow after a monster blizzard--could not even begin to harsh my mellow....

Wanted to share these pics...please be gentle with the comments--it was my first time (out of the country, in AC, snorkeling, taking pics underwater, driving a golf cart, etc.)! Certainly won't be the last, though.

Really, I just can't get Hol Chan out of my head...don't ever want to, either!

Wow, those are great pics! I rarely see pics of plants and flowers - a nice change.

Thanks so much for sharing!

BTW, that (I almost said, "little" but I can't go there as I disliked the movie!) Nicky is a sweetheart!! He's too cute!!

Thanks! TQ, my hub Terry shot most of the flora. He does have a great eye for green stuff and flowery things, doesn't he? (He spends lots of time in our tiny NJ garden, too...)

Nicky is a great travel companion! A very laid back little Dude, he absolutely loved Belize. At last count, he'd made about 10 girlfriends on AC (including little Jenna at JamBel Jerk--ask her Mama and I'm sure they haven't yet forgotten young Nicky) and 2 on Caye Caulker!

Oh, NYG! No, I never liked Belize...I skipped right over like and just fell madly in love at first sight! laugh

Started planning the next visit in the wee hours of our first night. I woke up and stepped out on the porch, looked up, ran back to the room, shook Terry awake and dragged him by the hand out to the porch. Pointed up to the stars, so close and so bright in that velvet sky they cast shadows on the sand. We agreed I could just pluck one out and hand it to him, but wanted to save it so we could stare at them all the same way the next time we came. smile
