Although I’m sure you’re dying to hear my thoughts about the exciting world of sequestration, drone strikes and asteroids, I’m still in a Utila-state-of-mind, even though I got home on Friday night. Here’s some random pics I thought I’d share.
This is the house we stayed at, the Life’s a Beach Villa – it’s located on the northeast side of the island at Rocky Point, about a mile or so from town.
An average shot of downtown Utila.
20 Lempiras, about $1.
The Driftwood, my favorite eatery on the island, though we never got to eat at RJ’s, which is supposedly superb. We met an expat at the Driftwood named Christina, and she was a wealth of information throughout our stay. Very chill chick, moved to the island with her husband several years ago. The food at the Driftwood was outstanding, and the setting couldn’t be beat.
The airport at Utila.
This is what your ass looks like when you get pushed into coral. Well, this is what a nice ass looks like when that happens.
Sunrise. I took in all but two sunrises while in Utila – it was my favorite part of the day.
Getting close to sunset on Bandau beach. My parents said this picture looks like the poster for Jaws.
A sea urchin.
A view of Pumpkin Hill from our rooftop deck. That bump way in the background? That’s Pumpkin Hill, supposedly once a hiding place for Captain Morgan.
The mountains of Honduras caught me off-guard from the get-go. On clear mornings, you could see them from our back porch, like in this photo, but iPhone photos don’t do them justice.
Sand fly bites. They don’t hurt, sting or itch that much, but they’re a nuisance.
Marlboro’s are $20/carton, and all cigarettes come with lovely pictures like this one. Fun times.
