Only 42 to more days until Belize!

Only 42 to more days until Belize! - 02/14/03 09:59 PM

Hi there,

We are counting downt the days until our vacation/honeymoon begins in Belize. That's right folks, we are getting married there! We have chosen The Victoria House as the restaurant to celebrate our wedding dinner. The chef has offered to prepare something special if we want. My question is for those of you who have dined at The Vitoria House before - Is there a dish that they prepare that is better than anything else? Or is there an "island dish" that you would recommend?

Thanks
New England Girl

Hey denverdan & good spelling Hope!
Thanks for responding. Anyone else who's reading this is welcome to give us suggestions regarding entree options at The Victoria House.

So here's the scoop on our little wedding: on 4/2 around 4:30 or 4:45 we will be on the beach in front of Caribbean Villas getting married. I will be in a sleeveless long ivory gown and my fiance (Greg) will be in black pants and ivory shirt and of course we will be barefoot! We will be having more photos taken in the tropical garden there too while the sun is setting. We are very excited.

Then it's time to pop the bottles of champagne and celebrate!!! We will be having dinner to celebrate at The Victoria House.

So anyone who see's us, feel free to say hello!

Can't wait to experience the joys of Belize!!

Kelley

Hey Tarpon!

Sure, I think having our best man/ witness wearing a grass skirt is a great idea as long as you were it the authentic way (with nothing else!!!) I'll keep my fingers crossed for a strong breeze!!

hehehe!

Hey Kelley,

You have a travel agency right in your hometown that is owned by someone who got married in Belize a few yeasa ago. Maybe you can buy her a drink in the Old Port and pick her brain. Pam Hurley - Hurley Travel - www.travelexperts.com

Hey klcman!

What great news! You really know your stuff! I know who Pam is and will definitely give her a buzz this week. Thanks for making the connect for me!

Sounds as though you know the lay of the land here in Portland, Maine by the way you mentioned the Old Port. Yes?

Enjoy!
Kelley

Best Wishes, NEGirl, Kelley, what a great way to start your new life together. If we see you about, a round on us. I wouldn't mind seeing Tarpon in his grass skirt either, I like to laugh! wink

Re: Only 42 to more days until Belize! - 02/22/03 04:43 PM

Glad to help Kelley.

Yup, I know Portland pretty well. I'm up the coast about 90 minutes from you...does "Andre the Seal" or the "Belted Galloways" mean anything to you wink

Will be on AC 3/6 to 3/16 for trip #11( had to cut short a few days this time cuz we are off to Italy for a week the night of 3/16 - BOS/IAH/BZE/IAH/PARIS/NAPLES/MILAN/BOS 3/6 to 3/24 phewwwww my heads swimming)

So, will miss you on Isla Bonita this time. Have a greattttttttttttttt wedding & honeymoon :p :p laugh

When Boarders give a tad more information in their profiles, we can connect the dots quicker, and be more helpful. Easy to answer question, when we know what part of the country you are calling home in the USA.

Re: Only 42 to more days until Belize! - 02/22/03 05:09 PM

She did Chloe - her profile says Portland, Maine.

Other people prefer to remain a little more private and keep it to generalities, doesn't make either wrong, just their preference. Lots of wackos out there ya know wink

Now, if you are referring to me (and don't take this wrong, please, as you are one of the most friendly & helpful people on this board)
I didn't ask a question but if I did, and it was relevant to disclose my exact location, I would have no problem in doing so. Suffice it to say that wherever I am, its cold & snowy laugh laugh

Hello again,

I've got to say that this message board and all of you are THE BEST! I keep telling my fiance how cool you guys/gals are! Without all of your suggestions, advise, humor and knowlege we couldn't have learned so much in advance about
our trip to AC.

We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible so keep your eyes open for us all. Of the six of us you have chatted with me "New England Girl", our best man/witness "Seeking Tarpon" and another sidekick in fun "Lizzard" so you've got half the crew on line all ready.

Have a great day, enjoy a beliken or 2 on us!!! Can't wait to arrive on 3/29 (my birthday!) and begin the best vacation/honeymoon imaginable! Keep your eyes peeled to the beach in front of Caribbean Villas on 4/2 around 4:40 as that's when the marriage of a lifetime starts!

Peace!
Kelley - New England Girl

Love your choice of Caribbean Villas - for both location and people. It's a wonderful experience with the gardens, bird sanctuary and all beachfront suites/rooms. Your photos will be great. Happy wedding and dinner and marriage!

Oh yes, you will LOVE CV. we ALWAYS stay there for at least 5-7 days each time down. wil and susan are great, and the folks on the staff feel like family. the grounds are amazing, they have kept the original littoral forest, thus providing a haven for birds and other wildlife. Great villas, even a hot tub for snorkeling practice the first night.

free bikes, which is a super plus. great snorkeling under the pier, lil hol chan its called...

saw halleys comet from the people perch, a great several story high lookout from up above the littoral forest. what a sky there at night.

great swimming off the pier, or just laying there at the end of the pier at night, watching the stars, swinging in the hammock.

my kids have grown up there on San Pedro. Many fond memories at CV. You will have some too.

peace

Hey Marty,

Yes, we have seen the panoramic view of the garden. Kay Scott sent it to us. She will be our photographer!

Thanks to everyone for the comments about Caribbean Villas. We are getting married there but are not staying there as they were booked. We are staying at Mata Rocks in their new ocean front suits with a great honeymoon package they have.

No doubt you'll see us all strolling the beach alot between CV and Mata as we get the "lay of the land".

Update - we arrive in AC in 34 days!
WOOO-HOOOO!

Hope everyone's weekend was great!
New England Girl
