For those living in winter climates, sometimes just looking at beachy homes can improve your mood. Admittedly....the weather down here this week has been a bit overcast and drizzly, and we experienced on Thanksgiving, the coldest day the locals had seen for a long time :).
So to improve all our outlooks, I am doing a post with some cute beach home images, and some of the fun to be had here in paradise :)
Of course, I am excluding Caribbean Beach Cabanas, as that would be unfair. :)
One of the things that drew me to Placencia was feeling so overwhelmed by the perfect beach homes here. Right when you see some of them, you immediately picture yourself on the veranda, sipping coffee....here are just a couple of my favorites....
Casa Del Sol.....pictures don't do it justice! It looks like a Roman bath and a Spanish mansion had a baby.
Easy Living rentals...looks like a perfect beach dollhouse....
Colibri house...a rustic, fun, beach house template!
Great houses at Sunset Point, where you see this on one side of the canal.....
And this on the other!!
More images later. I don't want to overwhelm anyone.
Additionally this week, we had some fun at Mojo, with two awesome people, Megan and Matt, who are visiting here from California. They got married here at the Belize Ocean Club and have come for a lengthier stay to see if this might be a place they want to relocate. I was lamenting about missing having wine and cheese, so they invited us over to the house they are renting on the lagoon. We had a spectacular view of the sunset from their 3rd floor porch, and I got to gorge on wine and a cheese plate! (note if you move down here, if you are into wine and cheese you will treasure it like never before here :) )

Kudos to Top Value who actually had Manchego Cheese that almost made my head explode.
Postcard awesome view of the lagoon and canal.
Later in the night at Mojo--Sonia and Katie (Ben's sister)
We met another fun young couple who just moved here to look into real estate opportunities, Robin and Dean, from Ottawa :)
And finally, I wanted to throw out a kudos to the Placencia Humane Society! They have a monthly clinic and Sticks has been taking full advantage of this. He goes and gets his nails clipped so I don't have to put up with him acting like I am cutting his paws off, and I took him in this past clinic for a teeth cleaning and tooth extraction. The veterinarian and staff did a GREAT job....his teeth look brand new and the baby tooth that was bothering him for years is finally gone. You have to get your dog sedated to get his teeth cleaned which is not fun, and I couldn't help getting a picture of him post procedure :)
Showing off his pearly whites....totally under still...who doesn't love a sedated chihuahua?
Later in the day getting pampered. Still crabby and spacey.
Tonight we are going to the Belize Ocean Club White Party, to celebrate their one year grand opening, and the owner, Ben's, birthday. Should be a great time, and then our Cleveland friend Anna shows up tomorrow! :) Also, the clouds lifted today so good feelings are back :)
