All I can say is WOW!!! We've finally made it to the SP portion of our trip! The whole country of Belize has been wonderful. The people can't be beat. Everyone here is SO wonderful! This is our first full day here, so we thought we'd drop a line to say "Hi" and to thank everyone for all of their wonderful advice and suggestions. Portofino couldn't be any more lovely. We're going to head into town here in a minute and have a bite to eat at Estel's and we can't wait! Thanks again everyone!

PS - Barb, if you're lurking out there, the ATM cave was AMAZING! We had a small mix up but Patrick handled it beautifully. We called Thursday before we left the States to confirm because we knew we wouldn't have access to a phone, but we needed to call when we arrived at Black Rock. No worries though it was all taken care of and we had an experience that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thanks!

Please if you find Tulu the snorkeling, diving, reef guide say "hello" from his Seattle people. Tell him Blake and I went to the game last Sunday as Claudia had to work and Blake was talking the whole time about setting up a group with Tulu in May.

We rented a golf cart this morning and rode from Portofino all the way South past Victoria House. It wasn't bad at all and we really enjoyed it a lot. We had so much fun shopping and eating in town. Only, down side to this whole trip is that Tulu left yesterday for Placentia and won't be back before we leave. frown We were so disappointed! Oh well, I guess we will have to come back another time! laugh

Barb - I have some really funny stories to tell you about Patrick, my Hubby, the sarong and knife. Can you even imagine?! wink

fuzzy I am so jealous of you. I too sat in that chair in Portofino bar on that computer. Wish I were there now!!!

Note: if you get sunburned, don't ask the Portofino people if they have aloe vera. They don't know what it is; after an hours search over back of property we found a gaggle of it in the flower bed in front of units 1&2.

Glad you are having fun!!!

Guess who we met in town yesterday? Paisano (sp?)! Hubby tried to take a picture of him but he promptly turned around and began to scratch his butt for us. laugh Then he took his cap and put it over his face. Afterwards he did come over to talk and laugh with us for a few minutes. We were glad to meet the legend! It rained continuously last night and well into this morning. The wind and rain were so bad we came to the conclusion that it might be some type of tropical storm. It has pretty much slowed down but the snorkeling trip we have scheduled may have to be canceled. I actually hope it is because I have a feeling visibility will be terrible.

Malibu - Thanks to you, we were aware of the aloe thing and brought our own. Thanks!

Just a suggestion, you might ask Paisano if you could take his picture first. He has always beeen very acccommodating to me if I ask first.

Jenn- I am so glad to hear your there. I can't wait to read your trip report and see your pictures. How long will you be on A/C? Where on the mainland did you stay or did I miss that on another thread? What was the ATM Cave? Sorry for all the questions.
