We shook hands with our taxi driver called Rasta, who helped put our luggage on the trolley. We then settled in the waiting room and looked out at the loading area.

Placencia came into view. We saw a dredger, presumably clearing for the new marina

Time to line up. After landing, we were the only passengers to disembark, the rest were going on to Belize City. We settled in the tiny lounge of this small airport to await the arrival of Chris and Alasdair from Belize City – our plane had picked them up and returned.

We moved out to stand by the gate as the plane came in. Mistress Of The House appeared as soon as the door was open, shot down the five steps, actually broke into a canter and soon swept us in a huge embrace. Reuben was there to meet us, luggage loaded, a short ride and Marissa met us in the loggia of the Casa del Sol. Upstairs we passed the outside dining table and into the lounge-diner.

Whilst the boys went to test drive the pool, Reuben took us girls to the big supermarket, the fruit shop and on to the soda pop shop that sold everything. We meandered around a pile of mops, toilets and bulk buy mayonnaise with a handsome lad who helped us with a cheery grin. Back at the villa, the boys helped us put the shopping away, then it was all to the pool to catch up over a cocktail or two.
