Good morning! Steve got up early to go fishing. The package we were on included fishing for me also, but I don’t like to get up early If it would be guaranteed that I would catch many fish, and have a non bumpy boat ride, there is a small chance that I might join Steve.
I pushed the button to call the tram to pick me up for the ride down to the dining area.
It arrived quickly.
This is the wheel that the cable for the tram winds around.
Let’s get in and check out breakfast.
Hot coffee, always a delight in the morning. Plus my very own glass of sugar. I ordered the French toast with fruit. They didn’t have any orange juice or butter today. The lady next to me at breakfast asked for butter for her toast, I was surprised when they said they were out. After breakfast I went to explore a little bit. This is the pool for the guests not staying in the canopy suites. The pool looked very nice. It was well shaded, for those who don’t like the sun. Our pool was lovely, but the chaise lounges are all in the sun, and looked too big to move. I went back through the downstairs lounge and bar. I will have to take a picture another day of the bar. I feel I am going to need to pad the rest of my days as there is not much going on here. I pushed the button again to head up to our suite.
I ended up spending most of the morning here blogging about Wednesday and our travel on Thursday. It was cool in the shade. Our two neighbors enjoyed the sun and the pool. They have been here since Sunday and will leave Monday. While at the pool the Howler Monkeys were howling.
Then it was back down to the dining area for lunch. I had a delicious salad with grilled chicken and pineapple. The ladies next to me were having pina coladas. I told them I was tempted. They told me “We are sitting right next to you! You are not drinking alone!”
It took them a long time to get their drinks, I was happy I stuck with an iced tea.
Dessert was banana and vanilla ice cream.
I hung out at the room all afternoon, switching from our deck, to the pool deck, thoroughly enjoying myself and feeling more and more relaxed.
Steve came back from fishing just after 4. He had a very disappointing nil. That means no fish. However none of the other anglers who went out fishing with the guides from Copal Tree got fish either. Steve did see some permit, and threw out a few casts at them, but none of them took the fly. Let’s wish him better luck next time.
We decided to go down to dinner a little early and get a drink at the bar downstairs. We sat on the lower veranda, but no one came to offer us a drink so we went up to the restaurant. I was a bit overwhelmed, I saw some cookies on an end table and desperately wanted them, but knew I would spoil my dinner. I don’t like sitting at bars, so didn’t want to sit there. The waitresses were much more proactive and offered us a drink menu with all the specialty drinks offered her.
Steve had a Jaguar Pizz in honor of my car.
He drank it very quickly!
I had a Belizean Howler Monkey. I sipped mine.
Here is Steve enjoying the view.
Here is Steve enjoying the view of me. I warned you, that not much was happening and I would need to pad the post!
Our amuse bouche for tonight was a mini taco.
We each had the lightly batter dipped shrimp on cucumbers. It was exceptionally good. It was described as a shrimp and cucumber salad.
We each had the fish. I asked to have mine with rice.
Steve had his served on polenta.
For dessert Steve had ice cream. He didn’t particularly care for it as it was very grainy.
I had the Budino. I only ate half of it.
How do you take your coffee?
When you look at your spouse, do you look at them like you are scared to death of them?
Do you consider cookies a proper cocktail canapé?
