It is 9 am and our bags are packed but were not ready to go. San Pedro is a multi-layered, complicated town on a beautiful island and were just beginning to pick up on its true nature and rhythms.
Fortunately we’ll be back for five days at the end of our journey.
We’ve already become friends with the woman who runs the place we’ll be staying at upon our return, because of Rose of course. The two were in a yoga class Saturday morning and hit it off well.
Gaylynn is a former Californian and like a lot of people here, it seems, she does a lot of jobs. She runs the resort, an athletic club don the street and a condo complex next to the athletic club, among other jobs.
And she has the energy to get it all done.
Gaylynn has offered to keep an eye out for the right property for us for our eventual migration to Belize. Though we’ve yet to explore the rest of the country, San Pedro just might be the place.
We really like it here.
Already Rose is talking with two women (her yoga instructors) who will be opening a wellness center in San Pedro later this year. It is the kind of work Rose does right now — therapeutic and restorative yoga and pilates — and they are interested in incorporating her skills into their group which will also include a chiropractor.
Sounds like a good thing for the aging expat community that is headed this way! Still, nothing firm and much to talk about but it is great to see possibilities opening before you.
We rented a golf cart again yesterday afternoon and went as far south as we could, past some really nice houses and condo complexes. It is pretty remote and the road is a kidney cruncher.
We suspect that a lot of people simply keep a boat for the ride into town — the fastest and smoothest way to get around.
Our taxi arrives in a few minutes and we head off for northern Belize and Corozal for a few days. But, really, we can’t wait to get back to Isla Bonita.
