Turtle Time

Ambergris Caye, Belize Cayes, Belize
Today was another snorkeling morning, this time at Mexican Rocks which is north of where we last snorkeled. It's a series of shallow coral reefs and actually had more colorful, and must more, fish than out at the Hol-Chan Reserve.

We saw sting ray right off the bat, along with a moray eel, an eagle ray and some really big lobster . The highlight was seeing a sea turtle. They are so darn adorable! Plus there was the fun array of fish that was everywhere. We happened to be the only people on this trip with our boat, so we got a nice private tour of the area.

Afterward it was, you guessed it, more pool time and then into town for some shopping and wandering the beach. We made a stop at the Belize Chocolate Company that the kids had been pining for since seeing it upon our arrival. On the way back to the resort we made another stop at the Truck Stop for ice cream, because chocolate just wasn't enough. And hey, it's vacation... calories don't count!
