Our buddy Bruce Roberts, Craig and I decided we wanted to get a group of friends together and go diving.  We polled our friends and after a few e-mails decided on Roatan, Honduras.  Craig and I have been on multiple dive trips with Charlie at Boise Water Sports, so we asked him to put something together for us and come along.

On January 21, 2007 8 of us departed Boise for Houston and enjoyed a fun evening out at Pappadeaux’s Restaurant.

The next day, we met up with the rest of our friends at the Houston International Airport and flew off to Roatan for a week of diving and other adventures.

Our group consisted of:  Charlie, Bruce and Marie, Rory and Kristin, Rasheed, Craig and Holly, Dave and Sandi, Randy and Pat, Don, Tricia, Megan, and Derek.  Not pictured are Ward and Kim.  After the first dive, we paint a dive flag on our big toes and officially call ourselves “The Scuba Toes”.  Yes, even the men are not excluded from having their toes painted.  In fact, a few of them are usually first in line !  (I won’t mention any names Charlie, Dave, and Craig – SMILE)

The resort we picked was rustic with access to the ocean via two lagoons on either side.  We had three meals a day which were served in the main dining room or at the Lagoon.  As you can see it was a relaxed atmosphere with casual dress.  The weather was perfect except for the last day (Friday) this didn’t matter to anyone because it was a down day with no diving before we caught the plane the next day.

Diving was great !  No strong currents and lots of marine life to keep us snapping our cameras.  We had just enough people for everyone to be on one boat and dive together.  It was great because if you didn’t want to dive you could hang out on top of the boat and sunbathe !  From the Lagoon we were able to get in some snorkeling and shore diving also !

Of course, every trip is not complete unless you have some adventures other than diving.  Bruce and Rasheed decided to take a submarine “dive” to 2,500 feet below and…show off their Scuba Toes!  EVERYONE had to check out the Zipline tour one afternoon.  It was a blast, just don’t ask Holly if she knows how to break and stop herself from hitting into trees.

Some afternoons and evenings were spent going into “town”.  The town was called the West End and had some fun souvenir shops and a great places for lobster tail.  Craig and I rented a scooter one day to tour the island and enjoyed some espresso on the East end of the Island.
