1: We arrived on Roatan around 3:00 pm and took a taxi to the dock where they picked us up in a boat. The boat took us to the Cay (Key) where the Reef House Resort was located. It was so humid you could chew the air, and it was raining when we arrived.

4: Choko, the boat driver and the area around the Cay. The homes were brightly painted and sat right on the water.
