What’s hot this week
From the Editor / May 2015
I always enjoy learning about history, especially when you can literally take a step back in time! While exploring Old Belize you truly get the feel for what life was like decades ago and gain a new appreciation for our modern day life. It’s amazing how far we have come, and once you learn about the steps it took to get us here you will most likely have a new (or renewed) affection for our little country and her very colorful past.
And, as we walk (or I should say sail) down memory lane, one entity that has stood the test of time is our island’s one and only Rum Punch II. Her proud captain George Eiley calls it “sailing old school”…but we just call it fun with a capital F! Sailing our crystal clear waters powered solely by the wind takes us back to the days of old, when pirates and rum ruled the waters! This year George celebrates 30 years at the helm of our favorite sailboat, and there is no question the Rum Punch II is a big part of our island history.
In this May issue of My Beautiful Belize we also write about a little history in the making, (well…that might be a stretch)…but according to many who attended the Wine de Vine wine dinner at Casa Picasso the night was one for the history books! You can read about the wonderful evening of delicious wines and delectable food and decide for yourself!
I welcome you to indulge in our past and savor in the present while you explore My Beautiful Belize, chances are your visit will go down in your own personal ‘history book’ as one of the best times…ever!!!
