Day 4 – Belize

Sunrise on Day 4

When I went out to the balcony to take my sunrise photos on Day 4, I saw land and a short time later the ship dropped anchor a few miles off the coast of Belize.  The only way to Belize and the islands were via tenders that would be running every 30 minutes while at port.

Our tender to our excursion was leaving a little later in the morning, so we were able to take our time getting ready, which was a nice change from the previous day.

The tender took us to Starfish Island off the coast of Belize for a few hours of sun, ocean, food and drink.

The girls had a great time playing in the water and building things with sand.

They also spent quite a bit of time collecting shells and pieces of coral.  However the big find of the day was a conch shell Lili found.

Everything was returned to the water before we left.

It was called Starfish Island for a reason.

Naomi was not interested in getting in the water with the starfish or touching them.  She did pose for this photo though.

As the after went on, the cloud started moving in and before long it began raining. We got back to our tender just before the downpour, but before it began raining, I managed to get some good pictures from our time at Starfish Island.

Overall, it was a nice day on the island, but I was pretty disappointed with our stop in Belize.  I had really wanted to see Belize and didn’t know that our excursion wouldn’t take us into Belize City.  By the time we returned, there wasn’t enough time left to catch a tender into Belize and spend any time there.

We returned to the ship, got cleaned up and by that time the rain clouds were gone and we enjoyed a game of miniature golf.


Last year, Naomi held her golf club upside down. This year, she got a hole in one on her first shot 🙂 Wish I could say the rest of her game went well, but all had a good time playing and then it was time to pose for some more pictures.

Lili was good for one picture, but Naomi was all about finding different back drops for her photo ops.

Soon the ship pulled anchor and we were sailing once again.  We enjoyed another wonderful dinner in the dining room and turned in early for our early excursion departing the next morning.
