A different trip for Sandra and me.  We had the pleasure of traveling with Bonnie and Rich who are "working folk" but had the benefit of a 2 week "spring-break" at a time convenient for us. We shared the cost of a car rental - a must have - for getting around. Belize is a travel friendly country with lots to see and do.  And so we did.
