San Pedro - you're BEAUTIFUL! The color tour is back in progress ..... try a little jaunt down Front Street - have you seen the new Traffic Jam's brilliant colors and those great three-dimensional fish? Toucan shops are always delightful with their murals - the bird with dreadlocks is such a fun picture. The murals on the Sand Castle gift shop are tribute to the treasures of Belize as well. Take a good look at Rubie's Cafe ..... inside is a playful and surprising color scheme - and what a great teapot sits over the front door. There is a special Mayan guard welcoming you into yet another shop on front street...... drop in and see what he's protecting. If you haven't been inside SeaGal lately - go take a look at the mosaic floor - it's amazing. The look at Jungle Feva is definitely atmospheric inside and out. If you look down the block in front of the Primary School you will see a fresh new look for the library, the signature peach color of Iguana Jack's and the wild pink of Sunrise/Tropical Lands. The Primary School is looking smart with fresh green trim - it must be nicer for the kids to go to school when things are pretty.
And speaking of pretty colors at school - the Island Academy looks like the best of Crayola! Moms must love taking their children to LIFE school ....... the pastel stripes say "FUN".......which is what learning can and should be for our youth. Have you noticed Del Mar cabins? What great Caribbean flavor those colors add to a drive through town! Travel on down the road ...... don't miss the wonderful lavender tones on Changes In Latitudes! I've talked before about the purple Victorian house, but it's so special it always deserves mention. The home of the San Pedro Sun - the former Seychelles guest house - a true blue if there ever was one. If you take a peek at Coconuts Hotel from the beach side you will notice a "hint of mint" in the new light green trim - little bits of color brighten this familiar place. You'll never miss Rock's with that marvelous purple outline and the coral pastels of El Patio are both inviting and romantic. Don't stop - take a minute to enjoy the lovely and colorful art that adorns the wall of La Margarita restaurant - makes you want to wander in for a little taste of something spicy.
San Pedro - you are artistic and lovely. Keep it up and perhaps one day our colorful town will rival the wonders under the sea for beauty. Next time I write I guess I'll have to "get serious" - money, interest rates, title insurance or something ..... but seriously, never forget that beauty and color do wonderful things for our town, so pay attention and jump on the COLOR UP bandwagon!
Thanks for reading ...... Diane Campbell
