photo series: above the bay islands

After St. Helene, the next island one comes to while traveling east over the Bay Islands of Honduras is Morat. This island is characterized by a very large lagoon that makes up about a quarter of it. Photos below are a continuation of the Above the Bay Islands series.

A great shot of Morat and its lagoon.

Crystalline waters off the north shore of Morat. The eastern tip of St. Helene can be observed in the background.

The lush, dense forest cover of Morat and its fringing reefs.

This bluff marks the easternmost point of Morat. Across the channel in the background is the next island in the archipelago: Barbaretta.
