Snorkel Around Remarkable Rendezvous Caye

 

Playing around the internet, I found my favorite song about amazing Belize on YouTube. I invite you to click on the Jerry Jeff Walker track, follow along with the lyrics and take a four-minute adventure to this terrific tropical paradise J

COWBOY BOOTS AND BATHING SUITS • Jerry Jeff Walker

 

(VERSE) We've been here a week or so
Now, it's finally time to go
Can't believe how quickly time has flown.

 

Packin’ up the bathin’ suits

Getting out the cowboy boots

That’s a sign we must be going home.


Time just stopped for a little while
We were part of a tiny island
Made a lot of friends we'll keep for life.

A piece of heaven on Caribbean Seas


When we get back home to Texas
And they ask us what we missed most

I’ll shrug my shoulders, and I’ll smile.

 

(CHORUS) Early mornings on the long boat dock

Drinkin' coffee as the sun comes up
Lazy days napping in the big deck chair.

 

Late night dancing in a Front Street bar

Walking home underneath the stars

Man, it's like some dream we live down here.

 

(VERSE) Last night we ate conch and lobster

Mark said it was his favorite dinner

Maybe even the best one of his life.

 

Dining underneath the stars

Chilean wine, Cuban cigars
I smiled at him and said, "You could be right."

 

And he got real quiet, and he said,

"You know, I worked hard all my life

I made a lot of dough; I've been everywhere

I don't think it gets any better than down here.

 

I mean the warmth and love of the people here

No crime, no hate or fear

I don't think I'm ready for the world waiting for me back there.

Caye is palm-shaded tropical isle

 

I need me just...

(CHORUS) One more morning on the long boat dock

Drinking coffee as the sun comes up

Drinking Belikin beer in the big deck chair.

 

Late night dancin' in a Front Street bar

Makin' love under the stars

Man, it's like some dream we live down here.

 

Walking home underneath the stars

Hearing voices from that empty bar

Man, it's like some dream we live down there."

 

(VERSE) We've been here a week or so
Now, it's finally time to go
Can't believe how quickly time has flown.

 

Packin’ up the bathin’ suits

Getting out the cowboy boots

That’s a sign we must be going home.

It's a scandal that they have distroyed this pearl of an island to facilitat the stupid cruise tourists.
When i was there there was nothing accept a few palm trees, beach and the coral. When you were there, with the floating bar, well acceptable. But look what they did now!
