Just Like A Movie Set

Placencia, Belize

Our final destination of the trip, Turtle Inn, like La Lancha, is owned by Francis Ford Coppola and consists of a number of Balinese style luxury huts sitting on the beach, which is raked daily. Among the huts are a few swimming pools, restaurants, and a beach bar. It is, in essence, a movie set. And not unexpectedly, it is populated by a good assortment of beautiful young couples and "industry" people.

Fletcher came attached to a 2 year old sister, Sophia, a nanny named Ariel, and parents Renee and Billy, tv producers from Los Feliz. And there were great people, so while the kids played, and then ate dinner, and then had a "dessert party," the adults sat and talked and drank and generally had a wonderful evening together before stumbling back to our respective huts on the beach.
