Day Four : Belize !
24 February 2021 | Cucumber Marina Old Town Belize City !
Gail Gordon | Sunny !
What an amazing day ! Immigrations decided to let us in and go ashore. There is a change in government right now making it difficult to check in, apparently they are not letting other boats in at this time, so we are feeling very blessed. It is a transition period until the new system is implemented which will be soon .
The ladies spent the day shopping and walking the shore line where we met a gentleman name Hope. His heart is to help other people everywhere! The police came to check on us during this time as we are the only tourists in town. It was a feeling of being super safe. But remember to where your mask in Belize because it is $500 fine other wise !
The men stayed at the marina . Stephen worked on line while Captain Ted worked on refueling the boat and making sure we are in ship shape for the passage.
We all had lunch at our marina. Javier runs a nice snack shack serving curried chicken , a lobster soup and tostadas. I highly suggest his cooking. He is a kind generous man. We had coconuts from Guatemala but no machete. Javier come over to the boat and open them for us. We are grateful to have a new friend.
By the end of the day it was getting hot. We all jumped in the dingy to go out for a swim. The water was almost warm and very refreshing. A rainbow was coming down from the sky making a trail of color into the far distant horizon. Another beautiful day.
Every one has been super friendly and helpful in Belize. Cucumber marina has also been great. We are looking forwards to returning this summer and are in hopes that the regulations will be smooth sailing. Patience is our friend once again. All things work out for the good . Sometimes it is just a matter of time.
What ever you are doing may your day be great . It is a choice we make in every moment . So if you are feeling down, look up, because the sun is still rising. Call out ! Hope is here, for the presence of God is still on the planet and he will answer you.
