An average sunset!
Although this week has been relatively quiet, we are so enjoying our little respite here in Roatan.  We are hoping for a decent weather window either next Wednesday or Thursday when we hope to head to La Providentia on our way to Panama...  We will see....

This we we taught a few folks how to scuba dive.  what a good time!  Congratulations to Randall, Tammy and Darwin!  You will be awesome divers!

Early this week, Shelley came down with whatever I had last weekend... Fortunately, it only lasted 24 hours... 

We are planning to move from Fantasy Island on Monday where we will spend a few nights at the Roatan Yacht Club where we will provision, get fuel and take on fresh water.

Here are some pictures from this week:

It has been a crazy week!
Last weekend we attended a pot luck dinner at a neighboring yacht club and there was great food, good new friends and some very talented entertainment!  This sailing thing is really FUN!


Early this week we explored the rest of "Fantasy Island"  what a beautiful place...




Shelley and I became "licensed" Lionfish Hunters here in Roatan: The coarse took a day and cost $50 which included a spear...  We are still waiting for Shelley to get her first fish....






On Wednesday, we went to a "Pot Luck" put on by many of the island restaurants.  For $15 per person we sampled dozens of dishes from local restaurants... what a good deal!





For the last 3 days I have been really sick... I think I ate something that didn't agree with me or got a case of the flu.... Either way it really sucked!  But I am feeling much better today...  Thank you Shelley for doing EVERYTHING for the last few days...

After almost 4 months with almost no rain, Honduras is showing us a small taste of rainy season...  Not to worry, it never seems to last all day and it's ALWAYS warm....  

We have settled in quite nicely.  We are getting a bunch of boat jobs completed with the benefit of a dock and electricity.  We were thrilled to modify and install the sunshade that Stan & Joanne so kindly gave us in Florida...  With a few small modifications, it is working perfectly on our boat.  Thank You!

We are still busy trying to order boat parts, but getting things delivered here might be a real problem, so we may have to wait till we get to Panama....

Below are a few pictures from our first week here...
