At 3 a.m. Thanksgiving morning, cklahr picked us up for the airport. Checking in was a PITA. Fortunately now that we’re all TSA PreCheck we got to avoid the hour long security line.
The flights went smoothly and we arrived in San Pedro a half hour ahead of schedule. Our room wasn’t ready, so we killed some time at Red Ginger for lunch. I had delicious corn tortillas with shrimp. So did Kristen. She pronounced the Ls in tortillas when she ordered. We all laughed at her. She was embarrassed. It was epic. We also received the complimentary rum punch again, but no souvenir Belikin glasses this time.
After lunch we got settled into our room. The patio is huge. It might be bigger than the room. Kristen and I headed out to the pool to relax for an hour, then we went to Caye Mart for groceries. I napped hard, and then we went to dinner at Elvi’s.
I was dismayed to discover they didn’t have scallops, which forced me to try something new. I ordered the coconut curry shrimp. The curry was good, but not as good as garlic butter. Sigh.
I got an international data plan for my phone. Unfortunately I don’t have any available data, so I’m a slave to the WiFi once again. Which wouldn’t be so bad, except the WiFi at the hotel is worthless. I’m typing in Notepad++ right now so I can post later. Having 2007 flashbacks. Maybe I’ll be able to post pictures later, maybe I won’t. We shall see.
But I’m thankful to be here! The weather was beautiful despite a strong breeze and some sprinkles. We had a great day, and I’m looking forward to our dives tomorrow!
