Well John and Linda glad you had a great time and made it back safely. I have 30 days to go. Up north was nothing for me either. Sweet basils was good though. Papis was excellent, wasnt it? That is the first place that I am going after I get settled. Who does Louis work for?

Loved the trip report, JohnBoy! Glad the rest of your week went so well and that you made it home safely. My husband Bill would also like to know where you found Luis, the fisherman. That is something we'd like to try next time. Tell Linda we said hello! Hope all is well with you both in Texas.

Very nice report Johnboy. So glad you and Linda had a great trip. We sure enjoyed meeting you and wish we could have stayed a little longer after you got to town. I'm wondering if there is any lobster left in AC after you, Linda and Richard had your fills. Was Linda able to find any more Dr. Pepper? I'm debating on whether or not to post a message telling people where they can find DP. 2 things could happen. #1...everyone could buy it all up and there would be none for me next time, or....
#2...these places would realize how popular it is and be sure to keep it in stock.
We're all axiously awaiting your pictures from that new digital camera.

Welcome Home!
Cheryl (SeaJay) and Bill

Glad you had a great trip with Linda to AC. I, too had a great time there and enjoyed meeting all of you at Fido's. I went to the Jambel's Jerk a couple of nights and they gave us homemade keylime pie!! Went to eat at Elvi's Kitchen, Caliente's, Mango's (was that the name?), had awesome lobster kabob at the lobster fest at Caye Caulker, Fido's, Ramons (where we stayed)and even indulged in the belizian fudge ice cream. We went diving everyday and even ventured down o the blue hole which was awesome and well worth the boat ride. Our buddies were the California blondes so you know we made it a fun trip. I'll share photos John and Linda if you give me your email address. Just got them back. Tell Richard hello and to write soon...Ginger

Oh yea, went to the other side of the island of AC and ate at Sweet Basil's and it was wonderful. The golf cart ride was a hoot with having to use the little hand pulled ferry to get across the break in the island.

It is OK, to let some posts fall naturally, isn't it? And not keep bringing them up to the top?

Threads have a life of their own, some go on and on and some fulfill us in a briefer period of time.
