We were kind of slack on the picture-taking, but we had a fun visit with Chunky and Ruthie today.  Barry and I first hit the public library, Maria's fruit stand, and Super Buy South for a few groceries.  We then rode over to Coral Bay Villas to meet Chunky and Ruthie before lunch, and the four of us made our way on our bikes up north.  After a quick stop at Casa Pan Dulce for some rolls and garlic bread, we continued on to our condo, where we dropped off groceries and locked up our bikes.  Before we could get going over to Lazy Croc, it started pouring; a typical Belizean rainstorm that seems to come up out of nowhere.  Wasn't it sunny just a few minutes ago?  Yes, I thought so!

We chatted for a few minutes while waiting for the rain to taper off, during which time Paisley gave Ruthie's legs a thorough washing (she loves the salt).  Sure enough, within minutes, the rain had stopped, and we were able to walk over to the "the Croc", where we all indulged in far too much food.  It was fabulous as always.  Thankfully, there were no dessert specials to tempt me this time, but I was stuffed from hot wings and baked mac-n-cheese.  Barry still managed to choke down a slice of the Drunken Rum Cake.  Since the Croc will be closed next weekend for Christmas, we were glad to get a lunch in today.  And it's always fun to spend time with Chunky and Ruthie.  Thanks for joining us, guys, and for the garlic bread...ooh la la!

Yes Kenny, the view is great, and the breeze is normally excellent too. It's just a very comfortable place to eat. Casual and fun.

LOL Paula on your missing "b" key! ;-)

Hi Loretta, we're just down the beach a hop, skip, and a jump from Oceanaire, and we go by there all the time on our runs and bike rides. We retired here full-time in August. Hope to get to meet you next time you're down. You'll find us behind Chico Caribe with our Boston Terrier, Paisley!
