Wintry weather in Roatan

Today it's been a "cool" 75 degrees here in the Bay Islands as an Arctic cold front moves through the area. We've had some rough seas and squally, rainy weather.

Seawall to battle erosion

Adam, our new neighbor on the East side of the "Big Beach," is constructing a seawall at the base of the cliff with the goal stopping or minimizing the erosion of red mud into the bay. Over time this should result in a much clearer waters in this area, improving and enhancing its natural beauty. Adam has also done a major project to divert a gully that brought red mud into the bay during the rainy season.

Fragrant sea palms

Marking the beginning of the Caribbean Spring, hundreds of sea palms (Acoelorrhaphe wrightii) are flowering all over the property, enhancing the balmy sea breeze with their sweet fragrance, while also producing an abundance of nectar for the island bees.

The Holidays at Paya

These past Christmas and New Year holidays we held small, social-distancing events at Paya Bay, including a beach party with DJs for New Year's Eve 2020-2021. We even did our traditional Fire Warrior ritual on Bliss Beach to welcome the New Year!
