In these parts when the trades lay down a bit cruisers start to move. While Larry was on the boat Iwanted to visit some of the offshore islands. Between Roatan and the coast of Honduras is a island group that has been designated a marine park. The coral and the island group were stunning. We were fortunate enough to be the only boat there for a couple of days.
Not the best job as a cameraman. will try to improve. Gives a good over view of the area.

After a good sail that turned to a motor sail we arrived on the western most part of Roatan called West End. Beautiful area and the anchorage is a marine park where moorings are to be used. Good feeling after coming to a new country. We took the taxi to Coxens Hole and checked in with a three month visa that cost $20. A very good deal! The moorings are $100/month, $40/week or $10 / day. Quite reasonable.

After the delights of Placentia we were ready to head for Roatan in the Bay of Islands, Honduras. Moving East is waiting....waiting for a decent window of at least easterlies of less than 10 knots. Decided to go to far southern Belize and maybe get a slight angle on the wind.
