|Mom and I (Cara) decided to go to Placencia for the day. On the peninsula on the way there is a housing edition full of huge,|
partially finished homes. We've been told that many of these homes are sinking in the sand.

|Of course, going to any other town also means running errands you can't do in Hopkins, like mail something at the Post Office.|
|Any trip to Placencia also includes a stop for gelato at Tuttifrutti. (So, don't go on Wednesdays because they're closed.)|
|We poked along and checked out many sights and shops along the Placencia Sidewalk|
|We stopped for lunch at Tipsy Tuna, a cute place right on the beach.|
|There are funny signs all over and around the restaurant/bar.|
|We split veggie nachos, which indeed had all kinds of interesting veggies you don't normally find on nachos, including|
cauliflower and cabbage.

|On our way back home we stopped to check out Belize Ocean Club, because everyone told us we should.|
|It is really gorgeous there, and you can go and use the pool and have drinks at the swim-up bar.|

which is a helpful guide for travelers.
|James is the owner of Geckos Restaurant and that is where we ate that night.|
