Fishing morning

The sun is coming up – I am slowly (very slow) getting ready to go fishing with Capt Jeff this morning.

We ended up at Celie’s Deli because Estels was closed. Jeff ordered us up bacon and egg sandwiches and coffee for breakfast and we ate it on the patio of the Holiday Hotel.

Fishing was quite exciting today – my first time ever catching trigger fish – they put up a fight.
It was also the first time Capt Jeff and I heard the dolphins breathing before we saw them. That was pretty incredible experience.

After fishing the first thing I did after putting the fish away in small packs was eat a nice fresh piece of Barracuda cooked in coconut oil. YUM.

Afternoon snack Mark and I shared veggie stir fry with soy protein and brag liquid soy

Miss Joy is about to cook up some Snook and Permit for dinner that she just scored of Albero (sp?) her fish guy today.

After dinner Miss Joy Mark and I sat on the downstairs veranda and chatted about Maya and Belizean culture. Mark told us what it was like living in the jungle and about all kinds of waterfalls and interesting things to see on the mainland.
