There and back

Today was a busy day. Sandra and I went to the school to drop off soccer balls that she brought from Canada.  While there we did a quick tour around the school and San Mateo. Sandra got to meet Miss Francis and Mr Vernon and we saw the teacher training via University of Belize in the computer lab –  a 6 week course.

Now that school is out the kids are happy to be able to go play at the new playground by the sea. So nice to see the end result of the project Dita Ed and many others worked so hard to make happen – I remember the day when it was just a seed idea starting to be planted.

Sandra really liked Boca Del Rio beach area – she wanted a few pics to use for a her desktop background. We walked the beach to DandE’s and stopped for frozen custard treat – Sandra said it was so good. After that we puttered along front street so she could pick up a few gifts for people.

We stopped at Lime on our way out of town to pay for our phone credit we had ordered earlier. It was a triple minute day and Lime are smart cookies they always make sure to have enough credit to last the day and help keep us all topped up when others have run out.

We were lucky and caught a ride with Sharon to Dianne’s house. Paul and I had promised her we would stop by and help as she was moving and her thumbs are not in good shape. Sandra was hungry so always resourceful Dianne  handed us a copy of Shelly’s take out menu and said we could all order something and get it delivered right to her door. I was very impressed – 6am onward -free delivery – good selection for breakfast lunch and dinner – prices $12 – $13.50 – and $15 very reasonable. Paul and I split a stuffed burger which is a large bun packed with beef patty bacon cheese coleslaw fries and tomato – got our fries and slaw on the side – Dianne had same and Sandra a cheese burger no onions. If you are interested in Shelly’s service and want a menu just call her at 206-2171 or 666-3166.

As you can imagine after such a full day we were all ready for the pool and a quiet night at home.

You can see more playground pics on the school blog.
