Belize!!!
Well we are currently on the amazing Island or Cay Caulker. But it was quite a journey getting here, we got on a 6 hour air conditioned bus ride to Chetumal on the boarder of Mexico and Belize but managed to get on another NOT air conditioned, retired school bus, blasting gospel music ,and took it for 4 hours into Belize City ( should have been 6 but the bus driver was drafting and passing the cars in front of us!!). Belize city is the place that our parents hoped we wouldn't end up when we took off on this adventure. lol ! It was terrifying, (Ted says; "it wasn't that bad") there were bars separating the cashiers at the grocery stores! So we then retreated to our hostel where there was a possibility of getting tetanus from busted bed springs lol But we woke up REAL early and hoped on a super fast water taxi to Cay Caulker which is everything we hoped for. 
The island is about 2 miles long and has a barrier reef surrounding it. We take off on our snorkeling tour in the morning. So as for the rest of the week, there has been lots of hammocks, reading, drinking the local 1 barrel rum and swimming at the "split" which is a broken wall at the end of the island that for some reason everyone lays out on :) The people here are on island time (plus or minus a day) and the food is cheap! 


We happened to hit lobster season which started Sunday but apparently this has no effect on bringing down the price of lobster booo! And as the title says I took my fancy new underwater digital camera snorkeling, and it is currently drying out in our cabana with little hope for a future :) Wheres a best buy when you need one?
We miss you all and love the comments keep them coming,
