Coffee break

Sunday, August 17, 2008

This morning I decided to make a labyrinth in our yard.

Paul and I have walked replicas of the Chartres one a few times - a couple were made on a big canvas and laid out on the floor and that I really enjoyed one was out in the country hidden on a hill top amongst what ever was growing there. I have always wanted my own and instead of waiting to make a replica, of the Chartres one I got inspired by Stacy and decided to stop waiting and just do it - she is making one at Arnie's place. After a quick walk around the yard and making a small pile of things to use, I headed down to the beach to collect conch shells, coconuts, stones and driftwood.

My plastic bolsa bag got filled up very fast so much so that I was quite happy when a man on his bike stopped to help me bring it back home.

Wow that was a lot of work - I got a good chunk done about 3 rows, might add one more and still have some filling in to do when I find more conch shells and interesting things on the beach. Will post pics of it in a few days.

Time to head to Catamaran - going to meet Dutch today. Capt Jeff will be there as well, he just got back to town.

Sara - I did not bring my camera today so Walter asked me if I would write you a hello and let you know he is missing you. He is getting all excited about your next visit. We all had a fun time and the bbq was delicious.

I learned of your blog through Sapphire Beach Development. Thought I would check it out. I too took a liking to labyrinths. My son and I constructed one in our yard here in Arizona out of river rock. I love it. Good luck with yours. I am intersted in learning more about Belize and enjoying the area.
