Typical beach vacation week :)

Madalyn, Tom, and Kate have been here since Sunday. On Monday Tom and Madalyn went cave tubing and ziplining--they loved their experience other than the long and bumpy drive to get there. :) They went with Explore Belize, with Dennis, and they recommended this tour for those coming down who want this excursion. He has good reviews on trip advisor:

We went to Wendy's Creole for dinner and had lobster, ceviche, and fish--very good!

Yesterday the clouds finally cleared and it was a beautiful and hot day. Tom, Madalyn, and Kate played on the beach all day....Kate actually helped with pruning :) Tom decided to get the coconuts off the top of a tree about 20' high....Madalyn and Tom tried to rent kayaks but they were sold out....low season?? We ended up staying in and having dinner on the beach, I made a very simple chicken and rice with local seasoning.

I spent most of the last couple days working on more art for the grounds. The norm down here is handpainted signs to welcome you to a property, which is so old fashioned and charming!

Tom is out for his first scuba experience today, Madalyn and Kate are making friends on the beach, and Friday we go for a day sail! It has been a relaxing week so far but it is flying by!!
