Let sme go ahead and start somewhere....
MIAMI:

The arrival and gathering of everyone at the hotel went as planned...hiccup...backspace....ahh...Lisa and I had a few problems with the arranging of the pickup of the Saturday folks. Margie sent an E-mail of her pickup time and made a typo...she typed 1:55 and meant 11:55. Opps...missed her.:laughalot: ...then..while Rick and Rusty were waiting at the FLL airport to pick up more of our group...they walked in the front door of the hotel...oops again. We felt really bad about these two mistakes so went back to drinking beer poolside..:laughalot:
Saturday night...Dixie and Mike decided to take me and Trevor out for a bit of sightseeing in Miami :eek: . I called Lisa as we were lost and needed directions back but literally screamed when I looked out the Van window! We were in the seediest part of town and I about died of fright. I had never seen anything like this and can only be thankful that Mike was able to hurdle than vehicle down side streets full of gang bangers at a high speed while I layed on the floor board and cried for my life!
They did get me back to the hotel safely minus the PTSD!. We all packed up and got on ship with no problems. Rusty played shuttle driver and all went well with day 1 of our trip...

Belize.....

Ahh...Lisa...would you like to chime in on this one? :laughalot:
A group of us went to Goffs Caye. Lisa, McKinley, Dixie, Mike, Rick, Karyn, Trevor, and Lisa #2...
The boat they took us in was tiny and the trip out was about 10 miles. As we pulled out we could see Margie, Gary, Carrie, Piero up on the road waiting by their excursion van. They were pointing and laughing at our sinking tiny boat way too full of people and taking pictures of us. Had they had a cam of our trip out to this little blip on the nautical map...they would have belly rolled! We were all soaking wet before we even got out of the boat! One more would have sank this boat...but..we were entertained!
I snorkeled the reef with Dixie and Mike and returned to the island where Lisa was still giving us the DEATH GLARE and Mckinley and Lisa #2 were getting their hair done in some sort of Island braids. On the return boat trip back where we were taking in water...the driver dude pointed out the some people pay plenty for just the boat adventure! :laughalot: All in all it was wonderful.
I nearly got eaten by a baracude and bit by a stingie blob in the water but still liked the adventure....
