The storm washed a lot of sea grass onto the beach and walkways…

Otherwise, all appears to be well on Roatan. Hopefully the sun comes back soon so I can get my scuba diving certification!

    Wow! Great photos, though that first man-of-war shot looks more than lewd – it’s downright dirty! I love it.
