What're You Doing New Year?

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?

Hi Olivia! Well, I sat playing solitaire and watching TV. No fireworks to watch around here, and I forgot to switch the channel to watch the ball drop in NYC. So glad you are planning a trip to the Carribean though. Wish I could go on a cruise this year . .

Happy New Year!

Donna, I can't believe I was such a slug that I didn't reply to your comment. Now I find myself contemplating intentions for 2015, and in looking back to see ahead, here you are. I've yet to make it to Belize, let's plan a vacation for 2015! I'm on board. How about you?
