Our second stop on the cruise was to Roatan, which is a small island off of Honduras. It was definately the poorest of the stops. It breaks your heart driving down the roads and seeing all the dilapidated houses that people were living in. None the less, it is beautiful!! It looks a little more like Hawaii than anything else in the Caribbean, and there were lots of dancers and drummers performing on the pier when we arrived. Roatan was day 1 of scuba diving and we were so excited, we hopped in a van that drove us to the other side of the island where the scuba shop was. It was the neatest little place in the middle of the jungle!
This is Mackenzie, my niece, and Tanner hanging out on the peir.
This is my two younger brother, Tanner and Sean, and my dad and I filling out forms and getting fitted for all our gear.

We had 21 family members diving that day! It was so cool to be sharing this experience with so many people.

It's always incredible to me what the bottom of the ocean looks like, I'll never get sick of it. In Roatan we did a wall dive, which means we went to the edge of the reef where there's a wall that then drops off in to the abyss. The colors are so bright and vibrant, which sadly is hard to capture on a camera. Tan Tan

Later that night we went to the Magic show on the ship I tried really hard to be chosen to go on stage and did not succeed. It was pretty good anyway.
