calimesa 2015 - the fifth year!

This week Paya Bay once again hosts a medical mission. A mission that's the admirable, herculean effort of a group of kind, generous people from Calimesa, California. This is the Calimesa group's fifth! year providing free medical and dental services to less fortunate residents of island communities near the resort. For many islanders, this yearly mission represents a rare opportunity to access quality health and dental care. The dentists stay particularly busy, assisting hundreds of patients over four working days. The American professionals perform extractions, fillings, and even root canals! This mission of altruism and love is generously supported by the Calimesa Seventh Day Adventist Church. I think I speak for all Roatanians in expressing heart-felt gratitude for the solidarity, kindness, and goodwill that are the essence of this international outreach program. Muchisimas gracias, Calimesa SDA!

secret cove redone

We've recently put a lot of energy into the hamaca station at Secret Cove. The palapa was re-thatched, a rustic stone floor was added, and new hammocks were installed. This special spot remains one of the best places on the property to enjoy a sunset.

plant good thoughts

Do not worry at all about negative thoughts, and do not try to control them. All you have to do is begin to think good thoughts each day. Plant as many good thoughts as you can in each day. As you begin to think good thoughts you will attract more and more good thoughts, and eventually the good thoughts will wipe out the negative thoughts altogether.
