Odds & Ends, Bits 'N Pieces, Nooks & Crannies...

I guess I should get off the topic of critters and on to something else. Work really IS progressing on the Placencia Peninsula road. The trucks are rolling by every day with the fill for the section between Seine Bight and the airport. A good base is being laid, smoothed, rolled and prepped for paving. See the pics here... all between Seine Bight and the airport!

And a new multi purpose community center is being built on the site of the old basketball court at the end of the football field. The old community center was torn down to "straighten" the road in the middle of Seine Bight Village... no more "S" curve for trucks and cars to clash & crash their way through!

Also, the master suite in our house is finally getting finished up! Pics here. Just the walk in closet to finish up.

The Maine Stay Cabanas are continuously busy through the rest of this high season... and that's very nice... plus we are getting more future inquiries and bookings than ever before. Guess folks like staying in a place that doesn't look and act like a "resort."

PBS hardware seems to be on it's last legs... not adding any stock and the word on the street is you can have the whole ball of wax for a mere 1.5 million... US$, I presume. Albert Lowen's stock room is becoming quite the hardware store and MnM and Wallen's hardware are rising to the challenge. PBS has been the only Peninsula source for Belize hardwood, so it will be more of a challenge to get now. New building for the Chinese grocery (7-11) in Seine Bight is mostly built and the rumor is it will also stock hardware, electronics and appliances! The Village's version of WalMart?

Hot news... hope you weren't waiting for your breakfast! "This morning a container loaded with 22 tons of papaya left Little Belize in Orange Walk enroute to the Port of Belize. But it never made it- at least not on time because on the northern highway the container carrying the papayas overturned – causing traffic to be backed up..."

Great to have found this blog. Sailed from San Pedro to Rio Dulce last summer and in the process checked out the bar on the Peninsula. Time before that when we were in Placencia, not sure it was there. Good work!
