Fill er' up...

Yesterday was the first time we filled up the car.  We were headed out to check out a bookstore in Spanish Lookout.  This gas station is one of the few along the highway down to Mennonite country.

The gas station has a convenience store along with a hotel and is open 24hrs.  I noticed sign that mentions a diner opening up there soon as well.

It was amazing to see this place so busy...

And it seems like a place for some to hang out as well.  We saw locals that came in on their bikes just for groceries only.

  2. How exciting but probably not so exciting at the same time depending on how much gas is! It is really high here right now

  3. WOW, my gas hog car would break me in Belize. It does in the US. Your pictures are so clear and the color so good. What kind of camera do you us? I was going to get a better camera a year ago. I did a lot of research and then I never followed through. I have a Mac computer. What would you recommend as a camera? I didn't intend to ask you this but every time I see your wonderful photos, I want a better camera. Thanks Alida

  7. Is everything so colorful in Belize, Alida, or do you just have a bias toward vibrant color in your photos? Either way I love seeing Belize through your eyes!
