|Belize it or not...Bear & Em in Belize!||
Last night we were dinner guests of Bernie and Doris at Blue Water Grill to celebrate Doris' birthday. Also in attendance were Doug from Grand Caribe, a very funny and colorful guy from Montana, usually seen sporting a cowboy hat; and Rene and Caroline, other friends of Bernie and Doris. Rene and Caroline run Sundancer Properties in San Pedro and were married on the beach at Grand Caribe the very day we arrived in town (August 27th). We had a delightful dinner with plenty of good conversation, many laughs, and an abundance of Merlot. Since some of you will remember my lamenting not having any wine since our arrival, you will know that I enjoyed this!
Barry and I had walked into town for the dinner (approx. 2.5 miles, so we earned our dinner!), but took Coastal Express home since it was well after dark (9:30 to be exact, what party animals we are!) It was our first time on the water taxi, and we thoroughly enjoyed the fast ride to the Grand Caribe dock. Only wish it could have lasted longer.
In other news, our shipment of belongings from the US has arrived on the island! We are anxiously anticipating its delivery to our home tomorrow morning. We were hoping for this afternoon, but the container didn't get unpacked in time. We are so ready to have our bicycles as our feet are getting really tired from the walk into town each day!
