Sunday was a perfect day for my party, we decided to enjoy it to the fullest and head to Grand Caribe early even though my invite was for noon. Cindy and I took charge of the packing, of course we ended up with a floaty toy convoy. Nothing like driving through town with a bunch of blow ups strapped to your cart. After a quick stop in town for more hoops we were on our way north.
Once we crossed the bridge that Sunday drive in the country getting away from it all feeling hit me, such a scenic road and filled with good memories. Grand Caribe is only 2 miles north so it was not long before we were at the resort, thankfully the roads were in great condition. When we arrived, Beth and Char were already at the pool, smart girls had the same idea as we did – more pool side party time.
What a fantastic day perfect tropical September weather I am so glad I had my birthday at Grand Caribe Resort, I could not think of a better place. We ate, drank, hula hooped and floated in the pool for hours. It was totally my idea of a perfect party brought to life. Cowboy Doug was an excellent host and the staff at Cowboy Doug’s Bar and Grill did a great job at making sure we were well taken care of. Thank you to Grand Caribe for putting up with my floaty toy invasion and for my birthday present – a complimentary drink at the swim up pool bar for all my party guests. Loved the handmade sign from Cowboy too.
I am officially the last man standing aside from Cowboy, it is 8:33pm [the day after] and I have not made it home yet. Cowboy Doug is letting me use his lap top to get this post started. I have a lot of pictures to edit so you will have to wait till I get back to my own machine tomorrow for pics of the beach front condo, and our pool party fun. Thinking I need to pack better next time I pool party there ha ha.
Colder weather is coming fast and I know many of you are in Belize vacation planning mode. If you missed my write up on the 14 night special Grand Caribe Resort is offering check North Ambergris Caye News post for details. Don’t forget to join Grand Caribe facebook fan page to keep updated on future specials and daily news. And for entertainment Cowboy Doug will have you rofl on Cowboy Dougs Grill facebook page.
3:36pm Tuesday, I finally made it home. Cowboy offered me a ride, he had a few errands to run and I told him I could help him out for finding some of the things he needed. Along the way we ended up with an invite to Pedro’s for some of Waiter’s famous stew and the Arsenal game – always a good time. Then Cowboy was nice enough to drive me home and came for a tour of our place.
I just finished unpacking and noticed I was feeling much like many of you do when you get home from a trip to Ambergris Caye and find yourself having to get back to the real world. I am already missing Grand Caribe and the peaceful vacation feeling. We do not get away enough, I am sure many of you can relate.
I was pleased after a quick check on on tacogirl.com facebook page, I saw that at least one person fell for my giant lobster found in the pool at Grand Caribe Belize trick. I definitely have my work cut out for me, 315 pictures and 8 videos to edit not even ready to see what gmail is looking like h ha. I am still missing the proper codex for movie maker on this lap top so I will have to get that sorted out before I can get Emily’s hula show on tacogirl.com youtube.
