When someone asks you to help schlep stuff and it involves a boat ride, that makes it a no brainier. As was the case with Lara last week, she needed extra hands to help move things around to be photographed for Lemon Crush Design Studio, her new wedding design, event rental and tropical chachka store.
We all met up in town at Vilma Linda plaza to rifle through her studio and pull out things that would be good to photograph and started schlepping everything to the Seaduced boat that was parked at the dock in town by Ruby’s Hotel. With 6 girls we had the boat loaded and were heading off towards our destination fairly quickly. We headed north, cut through the lagoon side and traveled up the back of the island for about 15 minutes or so to one of our favorite spots.
Most people will tell you Belize is not known for it’s beautiful beaches. While they may not be pristine soft white sand that some people prefer, we have some really great Gilligan’s Island spots accessible only by boat. It was one of these that Lara had chosen for her photo shoot. Understandably so as the clear shallow water stretches on forever and the area is peaceful, heavenly and adventurous all at the same time.
Several years back when we were in the same area, I found a Maya axe head in perfect condition. I handed it over to Jan Brown and it made the Marco Gonzalez calendar. None of us found any treasures that day but we all had a fantastic time, I always enjoy seeing peoples reactions the first time they get to go there and experience that part of the island.
As temperatures drop for many of you, these next couple of pics are great for Belize vacation dreaming about swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea and enjoying a secluded beach adventure.
