Friday Frock and Fizz is a weekly JBD tradition, however in honor of my recent journey through the beautiful country of Belize, I hereby devote this Friday to some fizz and fish!
I grew up fishing in rivers and oceans with my Dad, but hadn’t been in years…what a delight to relive the joy and calmness that comes with fishing open waters. My friends and I had a blast on the boats guided by the SEAduced crew.
From spearing lion fish and snapper for lunch to digging up conch and lobster near Belize’s barrier reef, it all felt very living-like-our-ancestors. Wahoo fish abound and when seared the right way, it doesn’t get any better…
Aji Tapa Bar & Restaurant quickly became a frequent dining experience on Ambergris Caye, not because it was in walking distance of our hotel, but due to the delicious dishes created by owner and Chef, Hugo Meyer. Hugo, pictured above, caught a 57-pound wahoo I was fortunate to feast on…
Wine is always a winner, but so are the beers of Belize. A Belikin or a Lighthouse are worth a trip for the sip.
Stay tuned for more about Belize, kids. From cutting coconuts with a machete and tree houses on deserted islands to swimming with sharks and being blessed in a Mayan cave, there is much more to follow in the few weeks left of this year. Cheers!
