Isla Roatan, Honduras, Cruise Day 5

Our third stop was in Honduras.  It was another beautiful place.  Everything was so green.  It was extremely humid there.  We walked to find our tour guide and then loaded in a van and headed for some fun!  
At the port of Mahogany Bay

 The green part on top is a cashew.  I never knew they grew on a fruit like that.  The juice from the fruit was pretty sweet, but the fruit itself was weird.  It kind of tasted like that taste you get if you bite a banana peel.  It left a weird dry taste in your mouth.  The cashew part of the fruit has to be boiled and peeled before you can eat it.  No wonder cashews are so expensive, they are a lot of work.  Cashews, mangos, coconut, and much more grow wild all over the island.  Yummy!

Perfect photo-op!

It's like a postcard!
 We got to the first part of our excursion which was to go on a zipline tour.  April and I were pretty nervous to do it.  I didn't want the line to break, or to fall, or or or....When we got there, we got fitted with harnessess, helmets, and gloves.  I think we did 11 different lines.  I ended up loving it!  It was such an exhilarating feeling.  I would definitely go again.

Don't we look good?!

DH was so excited and not scared at all.  Crazy man of mine!

I almost didn't post this, but had to prove that I actually did it.

April and Randy

I don't really love animals, bu this little monkey was so cute, I couldn't resist.
After we were done there, we went to the beach.  It was beautiful.  I love the beach!  I always have.  The water was clear, the sand was soft, the day was perfect!

I got my hair braided by this cute lady!  I'm so glad I did.  I didn't have to worry about my hair the rest of the time.  I even kept the braids in for about a week and half once we got back.   I might have to do it again.

Enjoying the fabulous Honduras sun!

I sure love this guy!
