Did you notice that something salty and soft was missing from my Belize posts over the past year? French fries? Anchovies?
But not just any old lake or stream...the caribbean. We love Placencia. It has culture and heart. Soul. Still, you're just a sailboat away from snorkeling at sea. There's Tutti Frutti gelato and late night cinnamon rolls. (see below) There's One Barrel and Cuello rum. We've created so many cocktails over the years, like a tintum: skunky red wine and rum became an infamous, sangria-like martini. There's the T. L. C. I don't know what the "L" stands for, (love perhaps?) but the "T" is for tequila and the "C" is for cactus paddle - as in Sanpellegrino orange and cactus paddle drink. Now, after a night at Barefoot Bar on Placencia beach, we have rum and coconut water. Yum! We didn't create this delight, but it has started a new craze. In Costa Rica, we brought a pitcher from our digs, dumping 3-4, farmer's market coconuts for later use. So refreshing. Even without rum. This week, follow our traveling spirits...
After Barefoot Bar, we followed a complete stranger to the cinnamon roll dude - just because the perfect stranger stopped us with a query: "Hey, do you like cinnamon rolls?"
I love this photo. It looks like a painitng, but it's simply a reflection.
A surfboard shrine!
