Postcard of the Week: A Birthday Treat (#Frifotos)

DSC_7871 copy.jpg

 

This week’s Friday Fotos theme this week is “Treats”. Pretty broad and I was tempted to post photos of yummy Caribbean foods. And yet, when I think of treats this year, I think of my impromptu birthday trip to South Water Caye,  southern Belize.

I experienced two days of utter bliss. From South Water I went on an afternoon trip to nearby cayes, including Tobacco Caye, above. My only regret is not having stayed for my entire birthday weekend!
