Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

Ruby's Property.
Our friend Ruby bought 7+ acres of land in The Cayo. The first full day in Belize we decided to try to locate her property. We were armed with our road map, two small maps, and two photographs from Ruby, and we still had a hard time finding the right place~!

We were up and down a short stratch of highway 8 or 9 times, and just couldn't seem to pin it down. I was ready to give up, but Kraig refused to admit failure. We asked several local folks and each one gave us different directions...At last we matched a small road to the view in the photrographs, and we were pleased to have a successful day.

We got our first mosquito bites while investigating the area. There are foundations and walls for several cabanas, and a larger building that Ruby hopes to finish into a small cafe' and living quarters. She wants to provide longer-term rentals for artists who wish to experience Belize. She has her work cut out for her, that's for sure...but we are sure she will be able to realize her dreams eventually.

This location along the Belize River, and near the Western Highway, is exactly what we might choose if we are ever prepared to invest in Belize!
