I have plenty to write journal-wise, but right now I have some work tech to figure out. I just had to stop though to share my amazing environment with the world.
I am lying on a hammock at Yuma’s House, a house-hostel that is on the beach. A bright, clear blue sky and fluffy white clouds are shaded perfectly by coconut-laden, full palm trees. Right behind then is the greenish turquoise ocean, an open cabana with 2 hammocks, and a few simple wooden boat docks well spaced, stretching into the water.
This is what I dreamed of. A quiet place to enjoy the clear, clean ocean air as I write or work.
The price for my 4-bed dorm is $25 Belize per night, $12.50 US. A full fish dinner with 2 drinks and chocolate cake for dessert runs $20 Belize per night, $10 US – and that is BBQ at the beach. I didn’t do this yet but sat with some travelers last night as they ordered.
Others I know are on guided snorkeling expeditions now seeing sting rays, turtles, and so much more up close, for 3 hours, $37 US. This is a place to be, to relax, to enjoy. I wish my tech issues were not marring this perfection, but I am still loving this air and view as I puzzle though my problems.
By the way, there are clothing lines to hang your clothing or towel to dry – and they dry nicely in the sun despite the dampish ocean air.
