Belize. Adventure. The jungle. A pyramid. Smugglers.
That's how I spent the last bit of 2013 watching Caribe. Then, a millisecond before the fireworks erupted three blocks from my house, the good guys blew up the barge full of contraband. Happy New Year!
I hit pause, kissed the cat (because you gotta kiss somebody, right?), then ran out back to watch the fireworks.
And captured these through the trees with my iPhone:
The blur makes them rather impressionistic, don't you think?
Circling back to Caribe, it's auspicious that I transitted the gate from 2013 to 2014 while soaking in the sights and sounds of Belize. Why?
Because, my friends, the blue water calleth. The Bahamas. The Caribbean. Belize. Like a siren song, the blue water calls.
And I mean to answer.
I always do.
How did you ring in 2014?
