A Lovely New Bar & Grill and – Hurricane Lisa

A Lovely New Bar & Grill and – Hurricane Lisa

Last week, we heard about a new Beach Bar and Grill (my three favourite words) that had opened in the village of Seine Bight. Seine Bight is a small village about a 15 minute drive from Placencia, but it feels like a world away from this popular tourist destination. Many local Belizeans who work in Placencia, live in Seine Bight.

Hot, Hot, Hot, Trying New Restaurants and a Budding Friendship

This week been unbearably hot and still – like a sauna. No breeze and humidity levels of almost 100%. The only thing to do is immerse ourselves in some type of water. Tipsy Tuna, being right on the beach, provides a lovely breeze and, if you buy drinks and/or food, you can have the use of their loungers and picnic tables and swim in the sea in between margaritas. Perfect! We took Abby with us who was delighted after spending too many days at home. We waded in up to our chests and stayed there for an hour or so.

Visiting Placencia, Belize

Belize is such a great place to vacation, especially if you live in the US and Canada. It’s like visiting the Caribbean before it got overpopulated and touristy.

A Trip to Dangriga – the Heart and Soul of Belize

A Trip to Dangriga – the Heart and Soul of Belize

If you’re on a tourist visa in Belize and want to stay longer than 30 days, you have to make a trip to an Immigration office to get an extension. The 29th of every month is when I make that trip, usually on the Hokey Pokey (you can read about that here), to Independence. Coincidentally, it’s also the day that my friend and neighbour has to get her extension. And so we decided, along with our other friend and neighbour, to take a road trip to Dangriga to do some shopping, making a quick (ish) stop in Independence to get our visas extended. Dangriga has shops that we don’t have in Placencia – bigger supermarkets with a wider range of products, pet supply stores, furniture stores and so on.
