Belize Day 1

Mooey, Weenie and I got up around 3:30 am to head to the airport. Our flight was at 6:30. The airport was pretty deserted and we went up to the counter to check in. They told us our flight had been canceled and we were now on the 8:30 flight to Atlanta instead of Houston. Mooey had gotten her ticket using miles so she just got bumped to a later flight to Houston. We were all bummed. The good news though was we were now on the flight with the rest of our party. We all boarded the Atlanta flight only to get seated and be told the airplane was broken. We stood in line waiting to be rebooked. Little did we know there are only a few flights to Belize daily. The nice Delta man was able to get Weenie and I on a flight to Miami but the rest of the party had to go home and come the next day. BOO!

We barely made the flight to Miami and once in Miami, we barely made the flight to Belize. We were dead tired when we landed and we had no luggage but we were at the beach!

We took a taxi through town.

He took us to the water taxi that would transport us to Caye Caulker.

We were last to get on and had to sit in the front. The ride was bumpy and jarred my insides.

Once we got off the boat and took in the scenery, it was stunning.

The Seaside Cabanas were at the end of the pier.

We checked in quickly and went to our room. It was nice.

We checked out the bar, Uno Mas.

We were starving so we went next door to the Sand Box. The inside of the restaurant has sand on the floor.

The first order of business was to have a beer!

Dena ordered the chirmole which is a black chicken soup. It was unbelievable.

I ordered the jerked snapper sandwich. It was so spicy I could barely finish it but it was divine.

Afterwards, we moseyed back to the bar to wait on Mooey. Here is a picture of my banana colada! Yum!

Drink specials! 2 for 1!

We went to bed around 8:00. We were all dead. Tomorrow was my birthday!
