Belizean Update Dec 2016-REPOSTED Retirement/Vacation conclusion

Why would I never retire in Belize?

Because there is no other place anywhere in this wide world that I would rather be than right where I am now in south-central Ontario from Spring through Autumn.

For me, it’s time to open our hobby barn and get it ready for an influx of laying hens, day-old chicks, ducks, turkeys and rabbits which will be assiduously cared for  until it is time to say goodbye.

It’s time to get the vegetable garden ready for planting; then there is the planting, the weeding and the watering; and then as the months slip quickly by there is the harvesting, the time to enjoy the fruits and vegetables of our labour.

There are flower gardens to revive, patio tables and chairs to stain, the barbecue to clean and polish.

And then there are the visits from family and friends, the occasional party, the many bonfires in the backyard fireplace.

It’s a warm and wistful time, a time to remember and cherish.

And that is why I see Belize as a wonderful place to vacation for two months every year. But not a place to retire.
