Nearly everyone's on the way home, except for a few of us stragglers Posted Image

I'm sending this from the Beach Bar... Salva Vida beer in hand. :lmao:

I thought I liked it *HOT!*, but this week has sapped even me. Heat, humidity, water temps around 84F, I was WAY overdressed for the first dive 'till I removed half of my suit. Wait, that sounds bad.... the SHORTIE, I meant. :lmao: Hmmm. Still sounds bad. Moving on, the reefs are in good shape, lotsa corals, sponges, and fish from big grouper on down. I didn't hit the shark dive, so I didn't see anything bigger. Average vis was around 60-70 feet. Clouds of fish on some of the dives so thick that you couldn't see the person next to you. :fish: The macro was really nice, with a handful of seahorses for each of the 5 or 6 boats depending on luck. Internet was kinda spotty with only one working :) PC and >120 vacationers vying for time 'till I brought a couple more online in the last two days. Busy days for most folks thus the missing reports. You ought to see everyone else check in Real Soon Now.

Pirating the 'pirate boat' was priceless. They didn't notice the missing 4' flag 'till they hit dock... and the 'Pirates and Wenches' party last night was a big hit.

I blew out an upper sinus with a reverse block on Tuesday, so I've been dry since then trying to get healed for Belize. DOH!

Back home. Tired, but had a fun time. It was wonderful meeting everyone. Very busy week given all the diving and the various festivities, competitions, tours and partying.

Started posting a few pictures here, having some problems, but will continue to update once I get help from admin. Lots more pics to come of the marine life, the infamous boarding of the "Little Dan" and festivities. Stan, do I really have to upload pics one at a time?.......

Yep, sorry. :usflag: There's no handy way for anyone but the admins to bulk-upload. Dunno why the software is built like that, but the bulk upload function is only in the Admin control panel.

OK, added more pics to the trip gallery, including the pirate pillaging photos. Was not able to add the pirate party photos or transfer the ones already in my link below. Hopefully Stan or other admins will be able to help fix my problem.
Enjoy

The resort did a fantastic time arranging all sorts of entertainment and events daily! It was indeed a singles blast!

This shot was of the fire dancers on the beach...it was amazing, incredible and I think a bit dangerous...well for the fire dancers at least!

Thanks again Phyliss for such great shots! (You can see more in the official Roatan Trip Gallery here!
