Sunny and Very Busy San Pedro Saturday

Yesterday was a fun filled active day. On Friday when I stopped by Catamaran Beach bar, Ruth had told me I needed to come back and try the iced coffee with alcohol in it, so I decided that would make a nice Saturday morning treat before going to the Island Art and Craft art show.

When I got there Leisa was enjoying a glass of wine and had already ordered. As soon as I saw her plate, I told Luis I wanted the same. I had the alcohol version of my favorite iced coffee, since Island Perk included Bailey’s and Kahlua – it was yummy. While we were eating we got to watch a kite surfer practicing. He was really good and we were both amazed at his stamina as he zipped back and forth past us.

The art show for women in need at Xanadu Resort was well worth stopping by, they had so much amazing art work and crafts. I fell in love with Mr Yum Yum and bought some raffle tickets to try and win him for Tinker. The drawings are today and the sale is on until 5 pm, so you still have time to stop and shop for a great cause. They even have delicious beverages to enjoy while you are shopping. After the art show we did the Bird Sanctuary walk, Leisa does not care for heights but managed alright. I had forgotten how much fun it is to go through the big Banyan tree at the end. I’ll do it again soon and take pictures, this time I just wanted to focus on all the beautiful art on the pictures below.

More lovely art work and the refreshments for shoppers; iced tea and rum punch.

After the art show, we were walking down the beach to go to meet Cowboy Doug & his crew at Pedro’s and decided to take a pit stop to see Margie at the Seahorse Lounge at Corona Del Mar Hotel. A bit of San Pedro synchronicity, Cowboy Doug, Yancy and Gretchen had changed locations and were sitting at the bar when we arrived 🙂 We enjoyed a drink and some Margie time. More San Pedro synchronicity, tacoboy, who I had texted earlier to update him on what I was doing, turned up at the exact perfect time to give me a lift home – I was not expecting him to finish work so early.

We both had time for a one hour cat nap, and then it was off to Cindy’s for Fred Flinstone style ribs from the Sausage Factory – they were fall off the bone good. Knowing today was a big day we all decided to call it an early night.

Today is the last Sunday at BC’s. It’s going to be fun stopping by to see who is there and share some good memories. Also going on: Yancey de Veer will be playing at Fido’s from 1 pm & onward. We plan to go to both, and I can’t wait to hear Yancey sing, he’s got a great voice.

I had time to show Margie your comment and the pics I had posted of her Mark and she totally remembers you. She said if she remembered right you were with a Dentists group. Any plans for a net trip back here to say hi in person?

That iced coffee sounds great. Love the island art and crafts.

I am sure she will not remember my name but I got to drum with the Garifuna drummers when they were at coconuts.

Mark I am here at Coconuts right now and I told Margie abut your comments, she remembered your name as soon as I mentioned you had played with the Garifuna drummers.

I’ve been to San Pedro twice, first time with the Mission for Belize dental trip in Oct 2008 staying at the Carribean Villas and second time after a different mission trip in P.G. Both times I had to make back to Coconuts to see Margie. She is the best! If you see soon tell I said Hi even though she probably won’t know who I am without a picture. Also people I consider friends in San Pedro: Bernaby Bedello the jeweler, Javier, Luis, Mr Leopold at Carribean Villas and many others.

I will let her know Mark. I will pass the word to Margie, will see her this week as we are doing first aid training there.
