A Decision Made


It is nighttime. The waves against the shore are gentle and soothing as a humid Caribbean breeze blows through the screened windows. The muted sound of children playing in the street is both charming and strangely comforting.  A dog barks in the distance and a baby cries. Soon they will all be settled into bed and I will hear only the waves and the wind…lulling me to sleep. We have found our place. As soon as we saw it, it felt good. Turns out it’s not in any of what we thought were our three finalist locations. We have rented an apartment facing the sea in San Pedro. I will post details and pictures tomorrow. I have only a little juice left in my laptop and no charger with me. A warm goodnight from Ambergris Caye, Belize.

  1. I love the way you write Arlene, beautiful! …and Sabrina too, you two are spiffy writers :-). This entry is delightfully rich, whimsical, and does not require a photo to become a fan of you! Still fill us in, what’s like in San Pedro? The beach, the people and the place you live -I bet there’s much to look forward to.

  2. Alas, our much loved nomads have found a place to call home. There was quite the breeze blowing through our windows last night but no sea in view…only puddles from a much needed rain. Hm, I wonder when the next flight to Belize leaves!
