May 6, 2015 - Living Off the Grid

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. After a trip and a half around America’s Great Loop, we spent two winters in the Bahamas. Then we cruised from Key West to the Tortugas, west to Cuba, across to Isla Mujeres, down the Yucatan peninsula, and through Belize to the Rio Dulce, in Guatemala. There, we spent two hurricane seasons. A trip to the Honduras Bay Islands began the next...

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...

Mar 26, 2014 - Roatan Island

Travel day today. Bus left at 7:30am and arrived La Ceiba around 4pm. Then it was onto the fast ferry to Roatan Island. The ferry ride took about 90 min and was very rough - a few people not looking too good. The place we are staying out is very nice - even has a fridge, that's luxury on this trip. We are right on the water, our balcony has a hammock and it's about 20m to the water.

Jan 14, 2014 - Roatan, Honduras

After sailing 925 nautical miles from Houston, Texas, to the Honduran Island of Roatan, we docked early on Tuesday morning. The entire group of friends had decided to take a small boat to a private beach for the day. That beach was a paradise, except for the “no-see’ems”. Those nasty little critters chewed on us most of the day. I have to say that the view of the ocean with palm trees waving in the breeze, and the sound of the water lapping on the beach totally mesmerized us, and it was a fabulous day. We were treated to a tasty lunch...

Dec 5, 2013 - Roatan, Honduras - Day 5 of Cruise!

Our 3rd pit stop on this cruise was Roatan, Honduras. It is one of the poorest countries in the American continent, with over 60% of the population living in what the United Nations officially classify as poverty. Most Hondurans work very hard to earn, on average, USD183.00 a month. Those in the agriculture and industrial sectors earn the lowest wages; those employed by the services sector earn slightly better salaries. When we docked, I peered over the railing and immediately felt more relaxed than I already had been. We enjoyed a...

Living the Dream

May 10, 2013 - Now I'm hiding in Honduras….

I'm a desperate man Send lawyers, guns and money The shit has hit the fan…. Four weeks, 3 countries, a couple of sweet little towns, some Mayan Ruins, some really cool wildlife sightings, an island or two, lots of scuba diving, a jungle retreat, and more uncomfortable transportation then I care to think about - vans, boats, ferry's, buses, taxi's, tuk tuks, - man do I miss good old LC! So, I walked across the border into Belize and hitched a ride with my new friend Carlos. He was one of the dudes I met while wasting away time at the Border...

Mar 18, 2013 - Boat trip to the Pigeon Cays

What better way to celebrate my birthday could there possibly be than a boat cruise with friends? We gladly accepted the invitation to join Larry and Karen and a group of our friends aboard their dive boat Islander for a cruise to the Pigeon Cays. Armed with snorkeling supplies and bathing suits, we met at BJs Backyard, just across the channel from where we live. It was an 8 am departure, pretty darn early for the Captain and me. We are up at the crack of dawn each day, but trying to actually be somewhere that early, well that's...
