So Exciting

Boy and his puzzle

Thanks to all you great readers who voted for tacogirl in the 2009 Lonely Planet Blog Awards. My blog has made it into the best image blog category. The voting period for this round of the contest is from Feb 25th to March 20, 2009, so if you like what you see on tacogirl blog, please go cast your vote.

More to come…

My excitement is rising. I’m getting prepared for my surprise launch tomorrow and I’m in third place. I may have been a slow starter but I’m closing the gap with a little help from my friends – it’s go time.

Otter, you sure got my day hijacked royally from afar. I’m adding some of the best pictures. Of course I had to go back to the beginning – 618 posts in all. I have not yet decided how meticulous I will be, but I’m enjoying the reminder of why we moved here and reliving the feelings I had when I shot the pictures.

I’m posting smaller pics so please bare with the process as I will load a bunch and sort out the text. it will definitely be a work in progress.

While you wait, you can see some great pics here , and for those of you who like fishing adventures,click here. If you want a trip to the Belize Zoo while I put more pictures to go up just click here.For those of you in a the mood for fun, you will like the Dia De San Pedro opening night pics.For some reason I often ended up at Dia De San Pedro on my own, and looking back the pictures reminded me of time well enjoyed by myself.

I just hit the hurricane pictures- what a surreal time that was. I have to say though,with Jim Jam and all our friends around we definitely felt safe and protected.

Minor tech troubles – I have to compensate for portrait vs landscape. I think I earned a short break before sorting it out.

Luckily Cindy popped me on the coconut phone while at work, and we were able to order lunch at Lime, which Paul has headed off on my bike to go it pick up.

Here is a fun Halloween post. Kids loved the party. What a thrill to dress up, play games and win prizes. Up to Christmas now. After I select a few pictures there I’ll have earned another break. Hoping lunch will be here by then.

I’m up to 195 votes and i now have enough pictures to post. For now I made it through a good chunk of earlier blog posts to get the ones below, and still have a packed folder full that still need deciding on.
