Sweet eel encounter on Sandy Bay
It's been a while since our last post but we're still getting things sorted out on the island of Roatán -- like figuring out our best option for reliable internet service -- getting a new phone for Steve, as well as taking care of getting our sailing charter business up and running. In short, we've been busy.
But that doesn't mean we haven't been able to have some really good times -- meeting tons of new people and taking in the amazing sights around this gorgeous island. In case you haven't been down to the Bay Islands of Honduras yet -- Roatán is a big island surrounded almost entirely by coral reef with some of the most amazing diving and snorkeling that we've seen anywhere.
We were on our way back from snorkeling out to the reef from the place Andrea's parents rented on Sandy Bay when we ran into an awesome little piece of coral amidst a wide area of sea grass. The first thing that caught my eye were the little purple cleaner shrimp, the eel only caught my eye later when I remembered hearing about the symbiotic relationship they form and sustain over time. Then we noticed about three or four other little eels -- all coexisting in this little patch of coral.
It was an amazing little encounter -- just one small moment that encapsulates what makes this place so very special.
