|When the Captain asked me what I wanted for my birthday I told him, “honey I don’t need a thing, this trip to Guanaja that we are planning is the best gift I could think of.”
Miss Angie had planned a boat trip to Guanaja, the next island east from here, about 50 miles away, and a very cool place. She had such a good response that the boat taking the tour was full and she wanted to know if we would like to ferry a few left over travellers up to the island. There were 30 people from the island going, many of whom are our friends already and well, you don’t need to twist my arm.
So we cast off from La Punta and picked up our guest at BJs in torrential rain, the first in weeks, but timed nicely for our departure. Our arrival in Guanaja four hours later was also in torrential rain, so heavy that we couldn’t see the reef markers and had to wait it out.
The skies cleared and we enjoyed ferrying a boat load of reveler from Bonacca over to the Manati in El Bight, where 26 of us were meeting for dinner.
Well John and I have a huge soft spot for the Manati and Annette and Kluas and Hansito and all our Guanaja friends so here are a few shots of our wonderful weekend away at the exotic and most unique island of Guanaja.
For more on this amazing place you can reverse back to about March 2009 when the Captain and a I first fell in love with the island of Guanaja.
