My niece, Becki, came to visit us and we had a blast! I met her at the International Airport just outside Belize City on the 5th of January. I flew up on a little puddle jumper plane.

|Hopkins occupies a narrow strip of dry land facing the sea and backed by low lying land that is flooded in the wet season, as it is now.|
And Becki flew down from California on Alaska Airlines. Becki's flight wasn't due in until after 5:00PM, so we decided to spend the night in Belize City and get an early start the next day.

Becki choose a Belize beer - Lighthouse Lager from the Belikin Brewing Company - to get into proper Belize spirit for the start to our adventures the next day.
That looks like a lot of fun is about to happen! Great weather for a winter trip. Lucky Becki. Enjoy your time.ReplyDelete
The weather was very cooperative. Lucky aunt, too. ;-)Delete
Always good to have a visit from family members, especially when you life so far from each other.ReplyDelete
That should of course read "when you live" not "when you life." If my fingers, my brain and the keyboard ever get in synch it will be reason to declare a national holiday!Delete
It was a real treat to have her visit. And a great excuse to actually get out and do things!Delete
Beautiful views and a great start to vacation.ReplyDelete
The vacation was pretty great from start to finish. I had been afraid to anticipate anything since it could have been covid-canceled at the lat minute, but Becki's diligence paid off.Delete
Oh, that water! What a joy it must be for Becki to have an aunt who lives in such a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
I think it was a joy for her to come and experience this very different way of living. It was certainly a joy for us to have her visit.Delete
