It's our last day in Belize...
so we are leaving our work gloves behind
and driving off from the Cardies Hotel one last time
We are going to the beach community of Placentia for a well deserved rest.
Our mode of transportation is the Hokie Pokie water taxi
by the way, earlier this week our students DID the Hokie Pokie (to bewildered Belizean school children)
Waiting at the Hokie Pokie dock
"I don't drink soda often, but when I do, it's Fanta"
When in Belize...
that reminds me, all week I've heard lots of Belize sayings among our group.. such as: do you Belize in magic, Belize it or not, I can't Belize I ate the whole thing, jeez Belize, and Belize Navidad
The Hokie Pokie loaded up and ready to go
Tara isn't too keen on boats... here she's putting on her happy face
Check out Drew wearing his hat... actually check out Drew's red neck
Pulling into the dock at Placentia.. it was about a 10 minute ride
Here's the front office of our hotel, the Seaside
Which way to the beach?
This represents our harding working team all week
but NOT today, today is for loafing, and relaxing
The view at 9am
and looking so very cool
and .. well I'm not sure
This is so mod squad
The view from our hotel
While everyone was loafing, I thought I'd give you a little tour around town
Here's John the Bakerman's establishment. Yes, a bakery
The street entering town.. there are nice restaurants lining the street. You can't really tell from this picture... but trust me, they are there
The main 'street' in Placentia, is actually a sidewalk with......
Dive Shops, souvenir shops, lot's of shops oh my
Here's Melanie (4) at a shop, with her mother weaving handbags
At the end of sidewalk you run into the Shak which has delicious smoothies, my recommendation: the Maya Papaya
Life is Good in Placentia
BSU CM representing
I couldn't decide on which hat... so I'm posting both
The tropical beauty is everywhere, it makes even this novice photographer look good
While I was photographing flowers.... I wonder what our students were up to?
Eating lunch, I hear the shrimp burrito was amazing
Swimming (with cowboy hat)
Meeting new friends
If you teach a CM student to fish!!!!
The students I didn't capture on film... were napping!
Our last dinner in Belize at a place called Wendy's
Dessert at Tutti Frutti's, an Italian Gelato shop
Our trip is winding down... I'll capture our return home tomorrow
From Bloggers paradise... See you tomorrow
