West End Roatan, Honduras

 Local Boat in West End, notice the hand sewn main of several fabrics
 Larry Johnson arrived from Washington State and we took a trip to Carombola Gardens. A beautiful horticultural preserve just down the road towards Coxin Hole.
 The paths through the jungle was lined with ginger and Halyconia

 Cruiser potluck aboard Jumbie, a Leopard 42 belonging to Tom and Kathy.

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.
