Toes in the sand
My breakfast of choice quickly became toast with peanut butter and fruit jelly, and a fresh fruit plate - no papaya. For some reason, I just can't get into papaya!
After breakfast, we went out to the beach. We spent the day back and forth between the beach and the beautiful pool at Portofino. As with many of the beaches in Ambergris Caye, the beaches aren't really ones you can just wade into and swim. This is beacuse there is an abundance of turtle grass right off the beach. We were told they do not clear it out for swimming because it's an important part of the ecosystem. It's a nesting area for fish and other marine life.
Our first full day at Portofino was a day without shoes, a day with our toes in the sand and day with not a care in the world. That's vacation as it's meant to be.
