|Breakfast at Marbucks Coffee House|
The adventure was worth it. I enjoyed a delicious breakfast bagel sandwich with coffee and decided that I now have another beach breakfast option.
|View from the Boca Del Rio Bridge|
I then took a walk (all the way) into town. I followed the main road to the Boca Del Rio Bridge. After the bridge, I took a left to the beach and followed the beach to the town square.
From Grand Caribe to the town square it is about 2 miles - two hot, sweaty miles. I walked around the square a bit and then hopped the water taxi back to Grand Caribe's dock.
|I might should have stopped at 1 LI...|
I did a few laps in the pool and then heard happy hour calling from the pool bar. And what a happy hour it was. A lobster quesadilla and two long island ice teas later and I was feeling no pain the rest of the day and into the night. Who knew happy hour Long Islands could be so strong?
|Stella's in the morning|
First thing this morning I headed to Stella's Smile Wine bar. Margo told me about Stella's and their bottomless Sangrias. It is a fairly new place about a quarter of a mile south of Grand Caribe. In addition to the bottomless Sangria in the evenings, they offer a bottomless Mimosa on weekend mornings. What better way to get over a Long Island hangover than imbibing in a few mimosas? Oh, and their crepes are pretty awesome, too. I enjoyed a lobster crepe because, when in Belizin in lobster season, I try to take advantage.
After breakfast, I took another walk into town. I did a little shopping before returning via water taxi.
|Stella's in the evening...|
A few laps in the pool and back to Stella's to try the famous pizza night with bottomless Sangria. I opted for the white pizza with shrimp topping. It was sooooo good. I have enough for lunch tomorrow - or maybe a late night snack tonight because I am getting hungry thinking about it sitting in the fridge.
After I asked for a box for my leftovers, the staff moved a chair to their dock so I could continue to enjoy my bottomless Sangrias and a good view of the lagoon. And, a few Sangrias later, when I was ready to leave, they poured one for the road. Bottomless really is bottomless at Stella's
On a sad note, I am missing the tree trimming party happening tonight at my son's place back in Ohio; I do love a tree trimming party when it is not my tree to trim. But on the flip side, I am in Belize.
