Everything converged, and we ended up having to go to Dangriga (40 minutes north of Hopkins) AND Placencia (1 hour south of Hopkins) for a bunch of errands. Dangriga errands included getting our monthly passport stamps, mailing stuff at the post office, getting haircuts, going to the auto parts store, and stopping at a grocery store that sometimes has gluten-free items.
|After finishing our errands in Dangriga we stopped for lunch at Selena Restaurant for Chinese food.|
|We each had soup and watermelon juice to stay hydrated on this hot day.|
Placencia errands included going to a grocery store that often has gluten-free items, a pharmacy, and two banks. After that we walked around town and Cara did a little second-hand store shopping. We also ran into friends and chatted for a while.
|Leaving Placencia you see this sign, which makes Cara laugh inside every time.|
Merry Isthmus - get it? (Okay, it might help to know that Placencia, Seine Bight and Maya
Beach are on a long, skinny peninsula, so on the other side of the road from this picture is more
water - the "lagoon", which is really still sea.)
|As we passed through the village of Sittee River we encountered sheep and goats roaming free all around and over the road.|
|We also enjoyed this view over the wet grass savannah.|
|We stopped in at the cute and colorful Lucky Lobster for dinner and drinks.|
|Eric's "Hot Chix" chicken sandwich|
|Cara's "Schmickle" (grilled cheese with 3 cheeses, pickles and tomato).|
