a chance meeting with a fellow Atikokanite!!!

What a great day at the shop!   The sky was seamless ~~ a solid blue, the sea was calm and the breeze was sweet.  Another beautiful day on Roatan for sure.
The Epic made her Tuesday appearance.   See the chairs in the photo??  I saved a couple for you!

Several people asked me this question today:
Is it safe in Roatan?
Well we have been living here for almost 3 years without any problems.
I asked one person why they asked and they said he knows that the Mainland isn't safe and there is alot 
of crime there.
That's true.
But although Roatan is included as part of Honduras it is an island and it is very different from the Mainland.
For this I am thankful.

So don't worry when you come here!
Just relax, breathe deep that sweet sea air,
go and explore the island.
It is truly one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean.
Not only do we have pristine beaches with glorious shades of turquoise blues, we have  the most amazing snorkeling and diving!
 And the beauty and the views of the East Side of the island are spectacular!

How gorgeous is that??!

One of the things I love about being in the shop is that
we get to meet so many wonderful people!
People always want to know where we were from in Canada
I told these ladies I was from North Western Ontario
and Sally said, Where?
When I told her I was from Atikokan, Ontario (ati-where??!!)
she was delighted to tell me that she lived there
from 1973 - 1982.
She used to curl with my Mom
(for those of you who don't know it curling is a sport!!)
and she lived very close to us.
Small world isn't it??!
We had a great time catching up!

We have some new things in the shop that I want you to see:

this is Adelina holding a handcarved boat that Yourgin made!

Here are some fish made by the Rusty Fish.
Aren't they so colorful and beautiful?!

I hope that when you come to Roatan you will enjoy
our island.
It is a special place and we are happy to share it with you.

someday soon, that  could be you walking and shopping!
