Arriving to find my friend Mike as his usual place at the Squirrel's Nest bar!

We arrived at the hotel, got checked in and headed to my usual room.  Uh oh, they said my room is not in working order right now and they’ve moved me to a different suite!  What? Hmm, apparently they discovered water damage in the room as they were prepping it for me from all the recent rains.  They were moving us up to one of the balcony suites which was actually an upgrade.  We wandered down the path headed to the room and I check out our bar and of course, I find my friend Mike there, keeping the seats warm for us! LOL.  One thing I can count on every year is Mike at the bar and Michelle at the pool!  I instantly spun around to the pool and no Michelle!  Apparently she went over to Caye Caulker with one of the other guests in the hotel for an afternoon of shopping.  Mike and Michelle are my friends I meet down there every year -  my first year in Belize we were staying in the same hotel and now we plan our trip down together every year and always have an amazing time! 

 

Silvina and I go get situated in our room and back down to the bar for our rum punches and to enjoy a few hours of sun before we have to get ready for the Halloween costume party that night.

  A few minutes at the bar and we had the skinny on all the people staying in our hotel and what to expect for the next week.  The hotel was relatively empty except for us four, Liz’s (the owner) parents, two other couples, and two rooms of police from the mainland. 

 

There was a wedding set to take place next door at Banana Beach - one of the local Belizean dive instructors was marrying a girl from Las Vegas. Mike and Michelle had managed to swing an invite to the wedding along with Sherlyn, our resident bartender!  We decided to go next door as well but to grab lunch/dinner before having to start getting ready for the costume party later that night.  The restaurant next door is one of my favorite stops during my stay as they have the best ceviche ever!  I usually get it once or twice while I am there.

Beautiful view from our dock
 

 

We head over to the restaurant as they are setting up for the wedding and by the time we head back, we are walking through the middle of the guests and wedding party still mingling. Bundy and his wife looked adorable and seemed so happy - it almost made me forget how cynical I am about marriage for a brief second! HA HA
