OMG! I can't believe another 6 months has come and gone...the older we get, the faster time flies. Thanksgiving with family (Rick's mom, brother and his family) was so much fun. We spent a couple of days in Placencia snorkeling and beaching, then a few days back at home, a river tour to Lamanai ruins and a trip to the zoo before their return trip home. The "fresh" turkey dinner was interesting...the bird must have been advanced in age...more like turkey jerky. We got by though and enjoyed the company.
Our second Christmas in Belize was spent with neighbors and friends. A big BBQ party...we gave gifts to all of the Belizean children in attendance. They fell in love with the collection of stuffed animals we parted with! With the start of the new year we started discussing possible changes in our future.
We were looking forward to the cruise that we had been planning for over a year, and starting discussing potential future travel. Rick has run out of projects and is feeling like he "wants more life in his life". Our cruise trip in March/April sealed the deal. We visited Bermuda, Portugal, Morocco and Spain and had an incredible time. We returned home with a potential opportunity to take care of a 10 acre farm near the Mediterranean coast in Spain. It's only one potential plan, but we decided to list our home for sale...we can travel at our leisure and not feel tied down to one location. We have spent the past couple of weeks working with a web designer to create a site for our listing (www.belizewaterfrontestate4sale.info) and visiting with realtors. Everything is now in place and we'll just wait and see what happens! The market here is quite slow, but if/when the right person sees what we're offering, I'm sure we'll have interest. If any of you are interested or know of someone who might be interested, please pass the link onto them...there is a referral bonus available once the deal is sealed! Time for another parrot hour on the beach! Will keep in touch!
