Roatan is one of the most popular Caribbean cruise ship destinations and when Mom and Dad Wood discovered that they could cruise to Roatan, visit for a couple of weeks, and then cruise home, they jumped at the chance to escape the rat race of airports and the confines of airplanes and cruised on down to our little island.

They came loaded with goodies, including a new generator for Diamond Lil, so that we can do more cruising, a new battery charger, Advantage for Minut, a file of 650 books for our Kindles, and a whole carton of Canadian rye whiskey.

They were greeted warmly by our large group of island friends, as we showed them some of our favourite spots around the island and many visitors dropped by to while away the hours on the front porch of La Punta.

Miss Jessie and Eulina sent over home-made bread. Marvin stopped by with fresh lobster, Mark dropped off three ripe pineapples, and Benut's Mom sent over home made coconut candy. "This is grocery shopping,island style," I told them, as we dug into our fresh, home-made and home-caught goodies.

Minut entertained us for hours on end and Jip and Chiquita got extra leftovers as well as extra hugs.

Roatan is working on improving the cruise ship facility, which at this time makes docking in high winds impossible. Poor Mom and Dad, after such a well laid plan, had to fly home after all, after a week of windy weather kept most of the cruise ships from docking that week.
