Belize

It's Saturday and although I am not home, I will share a few pictures that I took while in Belize. Please visit Chandy of http://whatnowtablescapes.blogspot.com/ also because I know she will have something to share with us too.
Below you will see my granddaughter AJ and her mom (my daughter) Rochelle.

Do you see the huge iguanas on the trees?
We went to a babboon farm. This little one was so cute, just taking bananas from all the adults. But when AJ handed him a banana, he took AJ's hand and ate the banana while holding her hand. That was so sweet and I got it on video. He must recognize the
young and warms up to them.
Can anybody guess what that big pile of something on the tree is? It is a termite hive, but not quite the same bad termites that we sometimes have invading our homes.
Thanks again for coming by. I apologize if I am unable to respond or comment soon. I will try to catch up as soon as I get home.

The monkey is cute, but the iguanas are icky! My neighbor used to have a pet iguana they let roam around the house and it gave me the creeps, YUCK! I've always heard Belize is beautiful, I'd love to see more!

What a great trip. I've heard that Belize is just beautiful. Love the baboon pictures, I think they are so interesting and could just watch them for hours. Love the story of the baby and AJ! The iguanas are interesting too, but don't think I'd want to pet one of them lol. Thanks for the trip! Kathy

Christine sorry about not posting on SS yesterday. I ran out of time from all the stuff I needed to do plus the phone never stopped ringing! Count me in for next Saturday. Sorry again...

Christine, that termite hive is huge! I didn't know there was another kind of termite. How cute that the chimp held AJ's hand while he ate the ban. I bet she was thrilled. laurie

Hi Christine! Oh, you go on so many wonderful expeditions! I've never been to Belize! Don't think I'd like those big ole iguanas or the termites! :)
I know you must have had a great time!
Be a sweetie and thanks for popping in to see me,

Fun! It's been a few years since we were in Belize - what a lovely country. (Though we liked the coast the best!)
