Author’s note: This post is part of my series on my recent trip to Honduras. To read past posts on Honduras, click here.
I left the mainland of Honduras on the four o’clock ferry, just in time to catch the glorious sunset over the Caribbean Sea. Although the hour and a half ride was exceedingly rough (I noticed something was going on when the ferry employees handed out plastic vomit bags as soon as we set sail), I still was thrilled to be out at sea as the sun set and cast brilliant hues of saffron yellows, golds and pale pinks across the sky and water. It was utterly brilliant.
I stood the entire way as I was concerned I’d get seasick. Standing seemed to help as I was able to allow my body to sway and move with the motion of the waves. Many people were not so lucky so I was happy when the ferry finally pulled into the shore of Roatan right as I was starting to feel a little green.
Here are some of my favorite shots along the way, as the sun began to set and cast her magic upon all those who could see.
Pulling out of port….
I could hardly wait to have more time in Roatan. I was looking forward to a morning of snorkeling and a four-hour island tour with a local guide. I also was really excited about my little indulgence….staying at a secluded resort on the other side of town, away from all the tourists and into a nicely earned heavenly peace.
