Part of the trip to Pigeon Cay runs through the longest natural mangrove canal in the Bay Islands. On a recent trip, some very good energy guests spotted and photographed this beautiful saltwater alligator in the canal. (These shy gators are wary of humans and are rarely ever spotted.) Shortly afterward, as they continued their trip to the cay, a pod of dolphins came next their boat. Some people would say they're lucky. I say they are just getting back into their lives the good energy they are putting out.
Ever wondered what your good karma would bring you?

Garifuna recording artist (and now member of the Honduras congress) Aurelio Martinez and a British film crew doing a documentary on his life spent the afternoon and evening at Paya Bay yesterday. Mr. Martinez's album Garifuna Soul was named a "Top Ten album of the year" by Afropop Worldwide. For more info on Aurelio's excellent paranda music click here. In the above photo Aurelio is being interviewed and filmed at Buccaneer Landing.

78 years young and a conqueror of mountains, our guest, Lesley, did the Picacho Peak challenge yesterday with Lisa and Sarah, a guest from New York City. Very impressive, sir!

A new sign marks the beginning of the Wetlands Reserve. These approximately five acres of wetlands will be a relatively small but welcome refuge for Roatan's aquatic birds as the island continues to develop and their habitats are encroached upon elsewhere.

This morning I finally got an opportunity to explore Paya Bay's cave. It's definitely a very interesting experience, especially for amateur spelunkers.
Looking back toward the entrance.
The entrance chamber.
A chamber further down. This one is about 6 feet high.
Richard, a groundsman, checking on me to make sure everything is okay. Richard has explored the cave extensively, apparently towards the end it narrows into a crawlspace and then opens into a large chamber. I only made it about halfway today.

Former guests (and now friends) Gary and Price of Dallas recently sent us a sweet little care package that included "Beggin' Strips" for Lucky and Foxy. I swear, these so-called "strips" are actually DOG CRACK! (Observe the cracked-out puppy clapping its paws on the package). The dogs were hooked from strip one! Last word is that Lucky has now hooked up with a sugar daddy that buys him his
Lucky does his best Beggin' fo Strips face as Foxy attempts to pull the crack bag out of my hand. Moderation, sweetie, moderation!
Thanks, G&P! We all hope to see you again soon.
