Sailing with Belize Sailing Charters....mentoring with Rotary!

We had a GREAT day yesterday! It was Madalyn and Tom's last day and the weather was perfect. Dave and I started the day at the Community Center, where Rotary and the local teachers had a great day, with the Seine Bight and Placencia scholarship students getting to know each other for the new school year. Dave and I met our two students and are very excited to assist with the mentoring program. Here are a few pictures of the morning event:



We then met up with Madalyn, Tom, Kate, Chris, Sonia, Hayley, and Gari and got on a beautiful 42 foot catamaran...it was an amazing boat and it was a highly recommended experience! We went with Michelle and Ed, and they took great care of us. It was such a memorable time; if a day of sailing, swimming, and snorkeling, is what you would be looking for in an excursion, Belize Sailing Charters is recommended. We got quite a workout at the snorkel stop as the current was pretty rough. Gari got a few mouthfuls of water and I kept stepping on things that were sharp... (note to wear flippers and not be a hero next time :) )

Here are a bunch of pictures of the day:

 Great pic of Chris and Sonia....he is making a normal face for once!
So poor Sticks had to go to the dogsitters for the day....with all the excitement with moving and new guests he hasn't slept much. He was a tired pup this morning!
Today is Sunday and we relaxed most of the day....we were pretty worn out and needed a day off :) Saeed delivered the bamboo and it will be a looong work week this week....but at the end we will have a finished casita! Sadly we dropped Tom and Madalyn off and they are missed! Kate has till Tuesday and is going to try to go to Laughingbird Caye for one more snorkel :)
