Still moving forward

Everyone has been asking us how’s it going in Belize and when are you going back. Well, our next trip is booked and we will be heading down in about 10 weeks. This trip will be all about getting things done that you can’t do unless you are there. For example, setting up a bank account, meeting with the electric company to find out which arm or leg I will have to give up, find out about internet service, talk to the home builders again and so on. What we really hope to accomplish is; get a bank account open so we can pay Ruben when he does work for us, get the foundation done for the first casita, clear a spot for the 3rd casita and get a water line run from the property line up to where the house will be. Oh, and drink Belikin Beer because you can’t get that done unless you are there either.

Like anywhere if you are not continually there, it is a slow process. On the other hand, every trip since we purchased the property we have made significant progress on our little piece of jungle that we will soon call home. When is soon, we don’t have a set date, but we do know that we want it to be more sooner than later.

It won’t all be work, of course I’m sure there will still be lots of time for some fun and adventures and as that happens we will share it all right here.

That’s about all we know for now. Below is a picture of our friend and caretaker Ruben getting us a couple fresh coconuts from the tree using a piece of bamboo. the second picture is the same coconut trees and the giant bamboo plant where his stick came from.

  1. Love all the pics! Wondering as always how far is this pic from your house? Looking forward to more pics!

    1. This is on Ruben’ s farm about 2 miles down the road from us. He’s got lots of small 3′ coconut trees that grow wild when the nut falls off the tree. He said we can have as many as we want when we are ready.

  2. Thanks for the update! We’ll see you before you leave, we should be home (??) about October 15th
