Roatan March 2021

Mrs Dog and I decided to brave Covid, and we jumped onto a plane to Roatan the last week of February into the first week of March. The flights between Houston and Roatan were almost empty, which was kind of nice. We stayed in the West End, in Half Moon Bay.

For lodging, we chose The Beach House. Oddly enough, it sits right on the beach! And what a super nice place to stay.

There weren't tons of people, which made it nice as well. All the shops and restaurants were open, and the food was good. We met a group of 2 couples our age, that stay there for extended times, and had a blast while they showed us around. Roatan Brewing was fantastic

and we enjoyed their company fully.

We dove with Roatan Divers, and they were above excellent. They are a boutique shop, off the road and down the beach. They treated us like Royalty!

The diving was good! The usual Caribbean critters were there...

We had a great time, and plan on spending several weeks there when I retire next year. This is a long post, so I will end it the way we ended our evenings in Roatan....
