Margaret and Rob took a well-earned break over Easter to the small village of Placencia, Belize. Placencia was settled in the 17th century by settlers from Nova Scotia but eventually resettled by Spaniards. Mangroves, white sand beaches, and the Caribbean Sea surround the peninsula.

The small village is a mecca for people who love to kayak, snorkel, dive, and fish. There are 100,000 acres of forest that serve as a jaguar preserve, and nearly 300 species of birds.

Margaret found inspiration in the way the sea changed from turquoise to deep blue and in the bright colors of the architecture. They had a fantastic time and even joked that they were ready to sell their historic home on the harbor and move!

Welcome home, Margaret – we’re glad you had a restful vacation.
