Palapa Papas Surprise and My First Ad with Belize Tourism Board

As I write this I am sipping my big Easter chocolate treat iced coffee with Noah’s Boah’s Chocolate Syrup on top. If you have not tried it yet I highly recommend. At $12 a bottle, it blows the regular chocolate syrups out of the water. Very rich flavor and simply delicious and made locally with all natural organic ingredients: sugar, water, cold pressed organic cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt.

By 5:00 pm the building and deck at the Palapa Bar and Grill were both packed with people there to wish Scott Harnish a Big Happy Birthday and celebrate his 60 outstanding years on the planet.

At around 5:15 Scott, Jack and Mike pulled up by boat to the dock just south of the Palapa Bar so a bunch of folks went outside of the restaurant, each with a letter spelling “Happy Birthday Scott”. Apparently, something went awry with that plan (see video below).

I know there are so many people that would have loved to have been there for the party so I am bringing a small bit of the party to you with a few photo collages and a short video of speeches. Unfortunately, I missed catching Jacks, as I had to run an errand for him.

On the Facebook invitation, Jodie had mentioned there was going to be a special guest. A little birdy had already told me it was Scott’s son Billy who is on Spring Break from school in Florida.

My First Ad Collaboration

A while back the BTB wrote me with the news that The Belize Tourism Board has teamed up with The Reporter Newspaper to develop Toucan Talk – a full-page, full-color feature twice a month. These publications are geared at bringing awareness to Belizeans and encouraging them to be a #BelizeanTraveller. The ads will feature different sites, activities, and festivals throughout Belize, and have some great visuals.

I was very honored to write about Easter on Caye Caulker with a couple of pictures and BTB made a great feature from my submissions.
