lucky resort dogs

Sisters from the same litter, Thelma and Louise are as different as siblings can be. Their combined energies, however, is a joy to observe and experience. They are always happy to play the role of temporary pets for those missing their animal friends back home (yummy treats are not required, but are not frowned upon either). These two canine "hosts" play an important role in the magic that often happens at Paya Bay!

Thelma (a.k.a., "Telmis") is a sweet, gentle, patient, mostly obedient, smart, easy-going, loving dog. She loves the ocean and doesn't miss an opportunity to go for a swim.

Louise (a.k.a., "Lou-Lou," and "440") is the "rebel in the family." She's high-strung, high-energy, impatient, fiercely loyal, and very protective of anyone she's decided is one of her humans. Her cognitive skills are impressive. We nicknamed her "440" because she doesn't "run" on 110 volts or even 220, she runs on 440 "volts"!

brochure weather

We've been having some great summer "brochure" weather here in Roatan. I took theses photos of Bliss Beach, the Black Iguana beach bar, and our seaside plunge pool early yesterday morning.

LOVE this video!

deposit some joy in the bank of the Universe

Every day, or at the very least once or twice a week, take a few minutes and focus on seeing yourself in joy. Feel yourself in joy. Imagine only joy ahead in your life and see yourself basking in it. As you do this the Universe will move all people, circumstances, and events to bring you that joy. You can’t be in joy if you have money worries, or health worries, or relationship problems with friends or family. So deposit some joy in the bank of the Universe as often as you can. There isn’t an investment that is more worthwhile.
