Island LIving

The days appear to be passing by but there is still time to get out and enjoy summer! I don’t necessarily treasure the long days and sunshine like I did in my youth, the thought of being in direct sunlight gives me the “willies”, but it is important to take time for yourself.

Our recent trip to Belize presented an opportunity for each of us to reset, unwind and just enjoy the spectacular opportunities offered, such as snorkeling, hiking the jungle or relaxing on the beach. Walking through the town of San Pedro or in Belize City you observe a diverse society that’s composed of many cultures and languages ….reflecting the countries rich history.

While at “Secret Beach” on Ambergris Caye we found a quiet spot with very few people, excellent food, and crystal blue waters with no sargassum [sea grass].

It was great seeing people travel again after being cooped up due to the pandemic. We all deserve to get away and with safety precautions in place it can be accomplished. Don’t let packing and traveling feel foreign, I surprised myself by keeping up with the patterns of the airport!!!



When you work in a building that pumps arctic air throughout the week, one begins to dream of beaches with sunny shores. There’s something about spending time outdoors regardless of the heat and humidity, Fast forward to Friday morning, where a few of us packed our bags and took advantage of the perfect getaway. Flying to Belize City, then taking a cargo plane to the island of San Pedro was a trip in itself….. no pun intended. Once airborne you see islands surrounded by gorgeous azure blue water, and relaxation sets in. You want to slow down and do very little outside of walking to the beach to watch the sun set.

Travel safely,
