Baron Blish Beach Bash

I went walking on the beach Monday morning. Baron Bliss Day here in Belize. It's a public and bank holiday, so nothing is open really, and we had no guests checking in.....

I ran into Brady who was walking to work, and he told me that he and Shanley and Erin were going for a barbeque (that's 'barby" in Australian) that afternoon when he got off work....did we want to go?

Now, I'm just saying that it took me about 2 seconds to say, "YES", and I headed back home to tell Renita. In the (paraphrased) words of Kevin Bloody Wilson, "that's a f*&%in marvelous idea!!!"

We made some goodies for the trip, and headed over to the Nepenthe around noon. Brady wasn't home yet so we sat on the boat for a bit with Erin, Shanley and Princess Bindi.




Erin doesn't look like she's suffering from a hangover, does she?


That Bindi makes the cutest faces!!!


Renita got som,e great shots of her


This is Princess Bindi's hammock bed...where she naps


Who me?


Calling her grandma in Australia....


"Yeah, that's my bed"



"What are you saying?"

Brady finally came back before we could break into the food. We took off, picked Sharon up from north of the bridge, headed through the cut and back to the canals...on our way to another adventure.

Mr. Nervous Bladder had to make a "piss stop" back in the mangroves

Normally, you put little babies in the car to get them to sleep, this one, you take out on a boat and go really really fast....it works!

Taking the family out on a holiday


We found the little slice of beach....and Brady was in charge of bringing the barbeque...which, I might add, he forgot...one thing, and he forgot. So he and Mrs. Robinson Crusoe here, scoured the bush for the makings of a barbeque pit.

I see fire!!!

There was a little sea gull roost out in the water

Erin seems to have recovered nicely from her hangover


Going, going, gone

A playpen on the beach

Dad, I think I like it!


Brady, Shanley and Bindi


Could this be the youngest member of Bar 595?

Renita found a hoola hoop in the bush, and Shanley tried it out. Let's just say some things are better when they are manufactured

Our little picnic site

On the way home, through the canals again...these two were enjoying their day

The perfect welcome mat

Back home to another one of those crappy susets!!!

We had an awesome day....ate some chicken dip, some tasty ribs, and shrimp, and Sharon's wonderful salad. Not bad for forgetting the barby, eh mate?
