Belize has become our entertaining playground. Our last week of guests was a blast. C&J fit right into the Alembic lifestyle. They arrived the day before George and Cay left, so we had 6 on the boat for a night in Placentia. This gave George and Cay a chance to show the newbies how we roll. Even though they have had oodles of outdoor adventures alone and together, C&J had never spent a week on a sailboat. You wouldn’t know it though, because they needed no time to get used to sleeping on a rolly berth, cooking in a tiny galley, and sharing small quarters with us.
Fishing was the main focus this week; we spent our days spear fishing while snorkeling, line fishing while sailing, and fly fishing from the dinghy. A record was set for the most amount of fish caught and consumed in one week.
While the guests probably found the adventure and the fishing engrossing, I was riveted by our conversations. They are both so intelligent, caring, and creative. I look forward to spending many more weeks together on Alembic or elsewhere, raising my awareness of the world and the possibilities ahead.
