Hi, Going to bed after a 2nd day of work.

Jun 22, 2014 - New trip

After a long day of travel, we finally made it to paya bay. Long layover in Houston, but slept a bit on way to Roatan. Got to our resort and started to set up the clinics, dinner at 6, very good salad and lasagna. They treat us very well here. Then a group meeting, to a dental team meeting, the finish setting up. Dark here earlier than home, so finished setting up in dark. A few bumps along the way, but everyone is doing well. Heading to bed at 9:30. Will try and post pictures tomorrow. Will be here for the week, blessings.

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...

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...

Feb 26, 2013 - Valentines Date #2

My honey is twice as sweet as most guys, so he took me out to celebrate Valentine's day twice. We had planned to head west on Saturday, a few days after Cal's party. However, that Friday, we were invited to a wedding - the very next day! Only in Roatan. So, our down island outing was postponed until the following week. Finally, on Wednesday, the weather cooperated and we set out. First stop - Coxen's Hole, to meet up with a "friend," who had renewed John's slightly overdue passport for him at a fraction of the cost of the pirates at the...

Feb 24, 2013 - One year Anniversary/Valentine's Day party at Cal's

If attendance at Cal's one year anniversary party is any inidcation, there are many islanders that are relieved that one of our favorite east end eateries is anything but temporary. Cal's Facebook page has dropped the temporary from the restaurant's name, a huge relief for those of us who plan our "down-island" shopping trips around Cal's opening hours. He's only open Tuesday through Friday, which for me makes a Monday shopping trip out of the question. We love to stop on the way home to see what delectable dishes Cal has scribbled on his...

Jan 23, 2013 - Roatán, Honduras ... our third Port of Call

Today we docked in Mahogany Bay of the Isle of Roatán, Honduras. We took a fast-paced, white-knuckled trip around the island, witnessing both the poor and the rich areas of this place. We returned to the ship today like we did yesterday with a deep appreciation for the lifestyle we have in the U.S. The poverty of the Central America countries we've witnessed is profound. If you ever hear me complain about my lifestyle, remind me of this trip into Central America. Folks, we are RICH compared to folks we've seen the past few days. We stopped...

Nov 28, 2012 - Mahagony Bay, Roatan, Honduras

After another overnight cruise we ported in Roatan, Honduras. The weather turned rainy. We had bought a tour to take us snorkeling. So much of our time would be laying on the beach. With the rain we did not think that was going to be fun and a waste of money. So we went back to the ship and got a refund on our snorkeling/beach adventure. While I am on the subject of cost, this trip didn't cost us as much as others because we were able to turn in two vouchers for $100 credit on the ship (total of $200). And our travel agent gave us $50...

Jul 21, 2012 - sea, sun and sickness

Yet another 7 hour trip - we were supposed to do these trips on local buses but because we were a group of 16 we could afford to get our own mini I buses and save around 2 hours each day - good extra sleep! This time our bus took us to a ferry - one of the big catamarans holding around 200 people - it wasn't full and just as well. We should have suspected something was different when our tickets came complete with sea sick pills. Most of us didn't bother, me because I'd not long spent 7 nights on a very rocky boat and was fine...you can...
