Zoo to Fish

or Bus to Zodiac

Anyway – yesterday afternoon we made a stop at the Belize Zoo – which is somewhere between a wild life preserve. There is wire, there are cages, there really isn’t cement unless it for visitors and all the inhabitants are local species…


We arrive at the ship late afternoon and had sometime after the usual frolic of the muster drill before dinner.

Today’s plan included a stop at Pompion Caye in the morning and Laughing Bird Caye in the afternoon. What no one had counted on was serious winds this morning resulting in an abort on the plan that had involved 2 km in zodiacs each way to get to the Caye. Lectures ensued.

We did make Laughing Bird Caye in the afternoon.

Leaving from the ship, it was a quick and easy run. Snorkeling was lovely –

as the water was crystal clear and I stayed in depths only down to about 5 meters. There were standing paddleboards available (no, not me) but we did a short run in a 2-person kayak. The waves were starting to come up as we headed back to the ship –

The Quest

Diner tonight is planned with the Cal Alumni group of which we have added all the additional Cal people booked directly….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
