Everybody gather ’round! MJ, get the lights… oooo, sorry ’bout that, l’il fella. Cyn, give MJ a boost, could ya? Car In, how’s about another round of drinks for everyone before we get started? Hotspur, make sure you have your hearing aids turned up. You don’t want you to miss anything. Leon, keep that baby quiet, wouldya?
Okay, here we go…..
We stayed at two different resorts during the time we were there. The first place (Portofino on San Pedro Island) was, in my opinion, much better considering it was our anniversary. More remote, no kids, designed to be a nice, romantic getaway type place.
This was our cabana. They laid out the flowers on the bed like this and left us a bottle of wine and a plate of fruit thanks to our travel agent telling them it was our anniversary.
The view from our cabana.
The bar. Literally right next to our cabana.
Belikin beer. Not horrible.
I mentioned that we kind of gave ourselves an extra day of vacation, by forgetting what day of the week it was. This is where I spent that entire day.
This place was a ton of fun. They did something on Thursday night called a “Chicken Drop.” Basically, you bet on a number that is on that little fenced in area to the left and whatever number the chicken poops on wins. Kind of stupid, but it got loud and the drinks were great.
I have pics of the people I went diving with, including the cute little 18 year old, but I don’t want to post them publicly. But they joined us at the Chicken Drop too.
Marie Sharps. Great stuff. Also bought a big bottle of the hot stuff.
Caipirinha at Fidos. Mmmmmm……
Real estate listings. Prices were not all that outrageous. Very reasonable, in fact.
Our travel to the second resort. Roberts Grove in Placencia. Meh. Designed more for families than for couples. There were 3 pools there and two were filled with screaming kids the entire time.
Beautiful place though.
The view from the restaurant
There is a bar out there at the end of the pier. Happy hour, 4-6pm every day.
Belikin Lighthouse Lager. Much better than the regular Belikin beer. All beers are 8 ounces though. I thought I was burning through them incredibly fast until I figured that out.
View from our room.
Habanero Restaurant at Roberts Grove surrounded by Travelers Palms. Actually, they are not really palm trees, but more closely related to Birds of Paradise. Really cool though.
June Bug. She greeted us at The Flying Pig, a great bar that is owned by an ex-pat from Missouri (I think). We walked in, she ran up to us and started licking my feet. Really cute and friendly. Wiserbride was missing our dog pretty badly by this point, so Junie B got lots and lots of attention and affection.
IT’S NOT A FUCKING RECORD STORE!! IT’S A MUSIC STORE!!!!!
View from the end of the pier at Roberts Grove. Spent the last full day here. Could have easily spent the rest of my life there.
Okay, anyone want to see them again?
