Shout out to everyone that entered my Belize Please photo contest for 2009. It was a big success. I would also like to thank my judges Maya, Ruth and Beth, as well as the local businesses who donated prizes… Pedro’s Pizza, Tropic Air, Lime Bar & Grill, San Pedro Fitness Club, CG Aesthetic, Hungry Monkey Sub Shop, San Pedro Sun, Sweet Basil, Tropic Air, Artistic Skin Designs, QuickSilver Messenger, Hummingbird Cafe, Pirate’s Pizza, and Ambergris Today.
Just as I thought – the judges had a tough choice on their hands, and it took a while to sort through all 50 contestants. We had nachos with salsa and Collette’s fabulous homemade hummus for brain food. There were 3 laptops set up so each judge could view at their own pace and pick out their favorites. After that they compared lists and hashed it out to see which ones they all agreed on.
After judging was done, we all had a hunger going and chowed down on crock pot ribs and veggies, along with Beth’s yummy pasta salad and Ruth’s divine chocolate fudge brownies for dessert. We then retreated to the veranda to hang out.
Power went out for a few minutes just now – luckily Barnacle Bills blog was open so I had something to read while waiting. Internet has been mucky since yesterday afternoon, and it looks like that has carried over to today. As soon as we catch a good signal I will post this even if it’s in a slightly unfinished state.
A short note to all winning contestants, congratulations! I will be emailing you all hopefully sometime today if our net comes back to let you know what prize you have won.
Reminder that the Lonely Planet Travel Blog awards voting ends Friday, March 20th at 12 PM Pacific time, so please cast your vote for tacogirl for ‘Best Image Blog’ if you like what you see.
