Diving the Wall in Roatan

Diving in Roatan

This is one video of my dives in Roatan last May/June. Just a few feet away from the reef with the GoPro and everything looks brown…..blue water takes out color. Get up close and there they are!


Feeling Cloudy

I’ve been feeling cloudy today Slow moving, thick Gathering up rain ‘Just let it fall’, they say It gets really heavy After awhile Holding on to caring Or, just going crazy Isn’t this just like the weather Who can know it’s course It does as it pleases She can’t have a tether I say let […]

Caribbean Adventure

Gary is retired and restless. Soon after our last adventure to Puerto Escondido we were talking about scuba and how we have waited so many years to be certified to dive. He wants dates and reservations. I just say ‘yea, lets do it some day soon’, he says lets buy tickets. Other old friends like […]

Something to Get My Hands Into

Hanging out in beautiful Mexico too long can cause problems. Even though there is always something to do in Oaxaca I found myself near the coast with beautiful beach, perfect climate, wonderful people, etc. After a few months I just got bored, sad to say. Wanted to get my hands into something. So, Joy and […]

Turtles Coming Ashore Near Puerto Escondido

Just east of here in Puerto Escondido, about a 30 minute ride, Sea Turtles have been coming ashore in droves since mid-August. An unusual number this year and it is continuing. Mexico has the largest numbers of protected turtles in the world now, since 1985 they have been closely guarded. Whole communities who used to […]

Maya’s Return – 2012

2012, just around the corner. Is there any clear vision of what to expect? Will I be as impressed by the events of 2012 as, after waiting many years, I was with Halley’s Comet? I didn’t go very far out of town, saw the speck through one small telescope and that was it. Certainly not […]

In Only the Night

T’was late night, close to 10:00 When a tiny scream I heard And as I turned our Cat came in With a Bat! Not a bird.. She brings us a present ’bout every day Lizards, most days we see Tonight in she walks with her prey A winged, flapping, screaming bat wanting to be free […]

Leaving These Blues

Your daily lyrics: These Blues Lyrics by Jimmy Lafave There’s a new light above you Let it shine, let it shine Let your faith and your hope both renew Don’t fade from our sight Deep in the night Like a stranger on a lost avenue Hey, you’ve got to be leaving these blues Though your […]

And I Had to Fall in Love with You

by Moody Blues What mattered to me Was the right to be free Like I’ll be someday I’m waiting for my heart to lead the way The places I’ve seen And the road in between Make me wonder why I’m searching for my dreams up in the sky I heard the call And in the […]

Swingset Chain

Gotta love those lyrics… Swingset Chain by Loquat There’s a playground that we used to run on The penny-drop that broke her arm The monkey bars that you fell from The swingset chain that stuck with my tongue It’s thirty below and we’re far gone If you plant yourself here I wouldn’t miss you for […]

Swimming Holes at Cuzamá

Sun comes out and so do we. Joy and I ventured out to visit ‘cenotes’. Off, by bus, to Cuzamá. Much of the road is one lane, a little tense when trucks or other buses come our way. Once in town and puttering along in a motor powered bike built for three, we are told […]
