We made it to our first island! After two easy flights from SF we landed in Belize and instantly made friends with a guy named Lou and who could play Jerry Garcia in a movie. We hopped on a boat and took the hour long trip in total darkness out to Caye Caulker. The whole island is sparkling with christmas lights and their own tree made out of lobster cages.
The first few days is testing our ability to stay positive because it has done nothing but rain since we have been here. Thankfully, Michael was made of positive happiness and I am just feeling lucky that we have so much time ahead of us. This girl would be singing a verrrry different tune if this was the only 5 day trip in a year. There would be words had with Mother Nature. But I'm gonna let her do her thing and get this rain out of her system now. Seriously though, are you done yet? I need to get some color on this see thru skin.
For now we are keeping ourselves entertained with cards, books and this blog.
