Party at Hol Chan

Belize Expat Health Insurance Advice

Yesterday was a perfect day for a pot luck party on the Seaduced Catamaran. We had lots to celebrate – end of Lobsterfest – Mitch’s birthday and One Caribbean Weather crew coming down to film us. Started out with breakfast for everyone at Changes in Latitudes then we all went and got out potluck stuff and headed to the boat. Luckily while at breakfast tq called from Lazy Croc and we got her to pick up 2 lbs of pulled pork to bring on the boat.

I got an email from Mike today and thought it was fitting to add in this Hol Chan post as it is about getting everyone to come out to the ACCSD [Ambergris Caye Citizens for Sustainable Development] meeting tomorrow night 5pm at Sunbreeze against offshore drilling. Presentations will be given by – Program for Belize – Healthy Reefs and Oceana.

Hello San Pedro Friends,

As I mentioned to many of you, I attended a really impressive event at the Radisson in Belize a couple of weeks ago about the various consequences related to offshore oil drilling. Usually I fall asleep at these things, but this one I was seriously on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was not only really educational, it was entertainment. I mean, at the end of the presentations, the crowd went nuts.

Especially if you are a business owner or work in tourism, which is pretty much everyone I know here, then you should definitely come and show your support. Everyone I talked to about the presentation regrets that they didn’t come with me to Belize City, so don’t miss this one!

Tuesday (tomorrow) 5pm at Sunbreeze. Presenters are from Program for Belize, Healthy Reefs, and Oceana.

Let me know if you have any questions. For more info please read the article on Ambergris Daily.



Snorkeling Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley was great. I chose just to float and handed my underwater camera over to Forrest and tq who did a great job of snapping some fish pics. Rob had RLD’s camera and I am sure he got some good pics as well [feel free to email some for the blog when you are home and settled Rob] It was Rob’s first time snorkeling and he was duck diving like a pro.

Actually, it was my birthday on June 19th and I was on the island from the Friday evening celebrating my birthday. By Monday morning I looked like the living dead…haha!

At one moment, you were literally like a foot away snapping a pic of that weather guy and his entourage as they were getting ready to leave the Island.

Anyway, I had an awesome weekend but my body is paying the price now:(


tacogirl June 22, 2010 - 9:21 pm

Happy Birthday Remo – glad you had a great time. Can relate to feeling like living dead right now.

Congrats I have been reading your blog since I stumbled upon it as it keeps my San Pedro fix when I can’t make it down but this blog entry is a first. In one blog entry you hit all of my favorites;
Not only do I miss hanging in C&L’s courtyard I miss Shuffle’s hot buttered rum sauce (on anything I bet it makes a leather shoe taste good) Next are town shots of the golf carts and normal street activity but to also take a boat ride to Hol Chan with TQ, the Rob and Michelle and you guys too?
That really hurts you know………I may have to have Cozy Corner to make me feel better you know…

Good to see that you were able to close out Lobsterfest and it sounds like it was great, good job Tacos! Now find me a job as a events planner and part time BBQ chicken chef.

tacogirl June 22, 2010 - 9:19 pm

CT you would have has a blast with us this past week. Cozy corner a great way to feel better. Would hire you in a second to be my personal bbq chef and help on events planning.
