Hey gang...we are OFFICIALLY BACK!

The trip was great and we'll work on getting a trip report up by tomorrow! Today is my mother's birthday so I'll be busy celebrating all day...taking her to church and then to lunch and then a wine tasting this afternoon followed by dinner and little sleep over in case we indulge too much in wine and fun! Can't tell you her age but it is a significant milestone so I'm thrilled she is with me to celebrate!

Thanks to all on the trip for a great time....in fact I think it was one of the best trips we've had yet! Wait til you hear about the new friends we made from AZ, CO, and FL! Not to mention excellent diving and boy do we have some stories to tell you all! And Kimmie...aka FinGrabber...was my roomie AGAIN....so if she isn't warped by now she'll NEVER be!

Kamala aka the Wench!

P.S. Here is the link to the photo gallery for all your Roatan pics....post away and we'll pull some of them for the official trip report! -ww

Hi everyone. Rolled into the house around 23:30 and am glad to be home for only one reason. 54 degrees and 25% humidity! I think the trip was great and I would like to thank WW for working very hard to put it together and keep it organized. The diving was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a better group of folks to travel with. Hope everyone has made it home safely and as I get pics ready will post them.

Got home around 8:30pm myself. Glad to be home, and have a very happy cat on my hands. It was great meeting everyone! :wacko:

:hiya: Hi everyone! It's me, Joanne, from the Phx/Scottsdale/Tucson group. I'm so glad our paths crossed in Roatan!

Made it back safely last night to RAIN! Can you believe it? Oh well, we needed it.

Had a great time meeting all of you on the trip; enjoyed the nightly happy hours. Thanks for all your hospitality.

I'm still trying to figure out this website...it'll take awhile to figure it all out. I can't wait to see the pictures of the trip!

Got home about 6pm Sunday evening and I am wiped!! Great trip but I have to admit I'm glad to be back in cooler temps. Even the water there (84-86F) was soupy!
