Shout out to everyone that entered Belize Please photo contest 2009 and made it a big success. I would also like to thank my judges Maya Ruthie and Beth as well as the local businesses who donated prizes… Pedro’s Pizza – Tropic Air – Lime Bar & Grill – San Pedro Fitness Club – CG Esthetic – Hungry Monkey – San Pedro Sun – Sweet Basil – Tropic Air – Artistic Skin Designs – Quick silver messenger – Humming Bird Cafe – Pirates 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 a nachos salsa and Collette’s fabulous homemade hummus for brain food. There were 3 lap tops set up so each judge could view at their own pace and pick out their favorites. Then 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 – Beth’s yummy pasta salad and Ruthie’s divine chocolate fudge brownies then retreated to the veranda to hang out.
Power went out for a few min – luckily Barnacle Bills blog was open so I had something to read while waiting. Internet has been mucky since yesterday afternoon and looks like that has carried over to today. Soon as we catch a good spell I will post this even if it is 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 and stays on to let you know what prize you have won.
