I can’t believe it’s already been three months since Bryan and I were married. And no, I still haven’t gotten my name changed 🙂 figures. We were at church a few Sundays ago and I was introduced to a few new people and said Hi I’m Brittany Kerr and realized that I can’t even say it with a straight face. I stutter and glace over at Bryan who then rolls his eyes and smiles. It’s so new to me and makes me happy. I’m sure I’ll eventually grow up from my 12 year old self and be able to introduce myself without being giddy…maybe when I make it official at the worst place ever, the DPS and social security offices. eek.
So my Mom especially, along with some others have been asking where our honeymoon pictures are…so at 3 am last night when I couldn’t sleep I thought it was a great time to prepare a blog. We visited San Pedro Town, Belize on the island of Ambergris Caye for 7 wonderful and relaxing days. I highly recommend Matachica Resort and Spa for any honeymooners or anniversaries or just a romantic getaway. Imagine flying over the water to the small island in a very small place. Then getting on a boat to drive up the coast of the island and after docking, entering your resort from the water. It was like in the movies, but only better b/c I knew it was real. When I travel I’m not the best about taking pictures. For so many years I was always behind the camera, not fully experiencing what was right in front of me. But after arriving home I’m saddened by the fact that I didn’t make any tangible memories through photographs. So while I didn’t get the adorable but super busy town of San Pedro Town, I did however try to get some of us and our resort. Bryan and I on our honeymoon – happy and in love. Bryan didn’t so much love the little session but he loves me so if suffered through!
This was our little casita. Plum.
I had to run back and forth about 20 times to set the self timer to get a few good ones.
We were pretty successful in catching dinner – especially with Chris our guide baiting our hooks, casting my rod and taking the fish off each and every time. Finally I said “so Chris, you think I might be able to cast the rod myself”…he didn’t say a word just handed it over with a smirk. On that cast, I reeled in this beauty of a fish. Can’t remember the name of it but Chris said we don’t eat that fish. Too pretty.
Belizean sunsets created the most soft palate of colors. Beautiful purples and pinks reflected from the clouds to the water making for breathtaking sunsets every night. Ambergris Caye has the second longest barrier reef in the world, creating a barrier, obviously, from waves hitting the shore. I’ve never experienced such a soft crashing of waves from a distance and stillness at night.
Bryan was super pumped posing for this picture…
but this one came out of it so totally worth it, right honey?
and of course there was a wedding a few steps from our hut one afternoon – so what did I do. Promptly photographed it. Well just the beginning…
Below are some point and shoot pics from the trip…
