Dec 10, 2017 - Western Caribbean Cruise

We caught the 12:35 ferry on November 24 to Horseshoe Bay and headed for the airport. Larry dropped Maureen and the bags at the YVR Fairmont Hotel (our favourite) and went and parked in the Park n Fly. Maureen checked in and they brought the bags up to the room. The service is great at this hotel – foam pillows and close to the elevator as requested. We went to Hanami Japanese Restaurant for dinner. It wasn’t as good as it used to be. When we came back from dinner the hotel staff remembered our names! We went to bed early because we had an...

Nov 5, 2017 - Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Our flight to the island of Roatan in Honduras was really good on the smallest plane we have been on. 12 seater, no separate cockpit, we could see the all the instruments. The views of the Mesoamerican Reef were beautiful. We had a good week scuba diving at Bananarama Dive Resort on West Bay. We had some really good dives and saw loads of sea life; green turtles, hawksbill turtles, green and spotted moray eels, lots of fish, and even had a eagle ray to wave us goodbye on our last dive. The most interesting dive site was Mary’s Place where...

Aug 14, 2017 - Roatan Island, Honduras

So another early start, up at 5.45 am to leave at 6.20 am. We have only 6 kms to get back to the airport but it will be Monday and peak hour and Tomas does not want to leave anything to chance. There is a slight delay as the traffic has built up because a high truck went under a bridge that too low and his load was tipped all over the road. A TV crew were interviewing the driver. We negotiate that and took a wrong turn once, but make it by 7 am. Our flight is to leave at 8 am. We eat hurriedly, and share a panini of ham and cheese and have...

May 9, 2017 - Honduras - Roatan - Wildlife

I was again up early and at the devotions. The ship had not docked when I came up to the room and we went to the buffet for breakfast. We went back to the room and packed our things as the boat docked and we read for a little while as our tour was not till later. We eventually went off the ship and walked along the pier and up the hill to a square where the guides were to meet us. I had remembered the time without checking the tickets and we were early by half an hour, over and above the extra time we had allowed ourselves. We stood in as...

After ten years of living on our 38-foot Bayliner, Diamond Lil, we were ready to settle down. My husband, Captain John, and I sold our house in Canada and moved on to the boat in September of 2005.

May 30, 2014 - Volcano's, Earthquakes and Roatan island - Honduras

First of all congratulations to all Queens Park Rangers supporters on their team winning the play-off final and their return to the English Premier League. Our last posting was just before Saturday 24th May and we were about to head out for a group meal in Panajachel. Ten of us ventured forth to a tortilla bar that stuffed their flat bread with a variety of fillings. The cheese and spinach filling was very nice and this was accompanied by a variety of salads and of course beer, spirits or cocktails. We finished our meal and it was evident...
