I regret to inform you that on Saturday we went from here:
On the beach at San Pedro,
Ambergris Caye, Belize

Ambergris Caye, Belize or Hartford, Connecticut after a snowstorm? Hmmm. Well, we’re back and trying to prepare for another six weeks or so of cold weather—or at least what feels like cold after ten heavenly days in Central America. In keeping with the pleasant effects of sun, sand, rum punch and the company of Ben and Joanna Popik and brother Mark and wife Pam, I am going to continue relaxing and post only photos this week. (At least there are no selfies or photos of Mar-a-Lago.)
Speed bump, Belize-style. It’s a rope, not a snake.
Beautiful Mayan Temple–one of many on the mainland.
Ben fending off one of the Ambergris Caye’s vicious dogs.
Trivia Night at Ben and Jo’s Truck Stop. Our team lost.
I stole the title of this blog, “Unbelizable!” from Daton Ramos, our very knowledgeable guide on the Belize mainland.
Have a warm week.
