Our trip started at the supermarket. We had to purchase some food for Breakfast and Lunch and let's not forget the beer! I am amazed at all the US food there. My favorite item....Oreo's!
Our driver took us to a taco stand on the way to the house so we could get tacos. They were so freaking yummy!
Jason and Penny enjoying the food in the van.
At the house and 1st things 1st - let's drink!

For some reason we kept finding doll parts on the beach. We decided to decorate our tent with all our finds.
this was our hike to the Lagoon - trust me - It was an adventure.
You see that brush. We hiked thru that and it was MUSH and smelly! GROSS but pretty when we finally made it.
I am freaking out because I know that crocidles are in the water!
Alicia the cook - she is fantastic.

I loved every soup we had. I have no idea what they were but I know they were good!
Water was so blue that day. We saw several sting rays and lots of fish. I'm still waiting to see a turtle. I know they are out there because they have been coming up at night and laying eggs.
If you look close you can see the tracks where the turtle went thru the sand to lay her eggs.
This is the BIG hole the female turtle digs to lay her eggs. Then she covers it back up and goes back to sea.
One egg that didn't make it to the nest. Poor little egg!
My hot husband!
I am so freaking happy!
One car on our lonley road to no where.

My little piggy made it thru the storm.
Zach found a new toy....a bottle.
I FOUND HER! BATINA!!!

Look at the egg next to my bucket! What the heck!
Batina back to her home.
I also found new toys thanks to Karl.

Zach doesn't let anything go to waste - he saved the coke.
Isn't he cute!
If you look close you can see the Pelican - they eat NON STOP!
