  • Made it to the little island of Utila. Just got here and already saw a typhoon off in the distance. If you look closely in the first picture can see a faint line coming down from the clouds. Diving starts tomorrow!

  • Our driver said Tegucigalpa is a lady at night and a whore by day. He said the city lights are pretty at night and when the day comes the gritty, grimyness that is Tegucigalpa is revealed.
    He also told us of neighborhoods that he wouldn't even walk through.

  • Igen i dag var vi oppe kl. 7. Vi ville gerne så tidligt i land som muligt for øge mulighederne for at komme ud og dykke. Problemet er at det ville resten af skibets gæster så også, så der var stuvende fuldt til morgenmaden.
    Havnen i Roatan havde nogle små souvenir-butikker og lignende, men ellers var der ikke så meget at komme efter. Området var lukket af for de lokale. Da vi kom uden for havneområdet, var der ingen nåde. Det var meget febrilsk, faktisk ubehageligt, fordi der nærmest for hvert skridt vi tog var en ny person der ville sælge os et eller andet – udflugter, lejebiler eller leje scootere – det var totalt kaos og meget stressende.
    Vi fik kæmpet os ud af havneområdet og lidt ned ad gaden hvor vi fandt en flink taxi-chauffør, som vi fik en aftale med at køre os til bydelen West End på øen og køre os tilbage igen senere.
    I West End fandt vi hurtigt dykkerbutikken Coconut Tree Divers og Divemasterne Monty og Gerome. De have en bådtur med to dyk der afgik inden for en halv time, så den meldte vi os til og ganske hurtigt var vi ekviperet med alt udstyr og var på vej med båd mod første dyk sammen med 8 andre dykkerturister, Monty, Gerome samt en tredje Divemaster. Begge dyk var på omkring en lille time. På det første dyk, ved et smukt koralrev der hedder Tabyanas kom vi ned på ca. 21 meter. Det andet dyk var med en max dybde på ca. 18 meter ved et koralrev der hedder Half Moon Bay Wall. Det var to rigtig gode dyk med en rigtig god sigtbarhed og masser af koralfisk samt et par havskildpadder.
    Efter vi kom i land igen, kom vores flinke taxi-chauffør og kørte os tilbage til havnen, mens han fortalte os lidt om livet på øen.
    Tilbage ved havnen gik vi lidt omkring og kiggede på souvenir-butikkerne inden vi gik ombord på skibet igen og fik os en sen frokost i Windjammer buffet-restauranten.
    Senere gik vi op på pool-dækket og nød solen og et par ture i poolen og det dejligt varme spabad.
    Om aftenen var vi i det store Platinium Theatre igen og se show med en ventriloquist (bugtaler). Showet var ikke fantastisk, men alt i alt okay. Han lavede nogle super gode ting, men var også noget usikker og lavede nogle knap så spændende ting i sit show. Det må også være lidt svært at lave et show der kan behage en tilskuerskare fra seks-otte års alderen til nogen-og-halvfems.
    Alt i alt en fantastisk dag, men den aggressive modtagelse af lokalbefolkningen på havnen trækker noget ned.
    Dagen får 4 stjerner ud af 5.

  • Today Maia had invited Vilma and her family for lunch. They live up in La Colonia and do not have an oven so I said I could make mac n cheese as Vilma considers it a treat. I made my favorite recipe and it tasted awesome, well there was none left. Vilma has two girls and a boy, they were all shy at first, yet once they got to know us they soon opened up. They were so happy to play at the beach as they don't go that often. We had a great visit and the kids just loved my iPhone camera, they thought it was pretty neat. We even used my selfie stick.
    That night we just chilled. I made some nachos and cheese for a snack and I headed to bed early. I got really sick that night tho, I think I ate too much cheese, lets just say its a lessoned learned.

  • Another beautiful day at Infinity Bay. Last day for Dr. Houston, Leigh and baby Garner, they are such a great family. I will absolutely miss them! Lunch at "Beachers", snorkeling, soaking up the sun and enjoying a wonderful Sunday in paradise. Packed the pickup on the way back, what a day!

  • Michelle, Erin and I were supposed to go diving this morning, yet Michelle has been having trouble with her gallbladder, big trouble! So Erin and I headed to Octopus Divers for an early morning dive. My sinuses have been a pain lately so I wasn't sure I would be able to dive, yet I equalized normally! Woot Woot!. We saw 2 sea turtles, spotted eagle ray, trumpet fish, box fish and a barracuda. Michelle turned up for the second dive that Erin and I decided not to go on, maybe a bad idea for Michelle. She knows her body, yet you do NOT want to have to go to the public hospital for ANYTHING.Read more

  • Today, Erin and I decided to go to West End for karioke at the Blue Marlon. That was a blast. I sang "its my life" by Bon Jovi and "I wanna dance with somebody" by Whitney Houston, and "Up Town Funk" with Erin. It was a great night.
    First picture is Lobo (wolf). Miss Peggys dog. What a cutie!! Second picture is the sign to the clinic. It was taken down last week by a motorcyclist. Unfortunatly he died from his injuries.Read more
