This week started the Easter celebration in Latin America and it’s a week of  craziness…as usual.

This first photo is NOT Utila. It’s Dominican Republic!

I spent the better part of a day riding around with my Texas buddy Scott on his golf cart. Most of the residents down here seem to be “hiding” out, which is a big norm for many Gringos in Latin America but Scott is a boat engineer.

We rode down to Coral View Dive Center & Resort and met up with our Aussie free dive friend, Chris. We also met John, who was there waiting on my new friends, the Penningtons.

I took a couple of shots of a house of some American  friends where I went to a dinner recently.

The water was very clear so I took several shots of that as well.

The island wraps around an inlet but is primarily Mangrove swamps and nearly impassable except by boat until the Neptune Resort area is reached.

The air was really clear today and we rode out to the north point and could see the mountains of the mainland as well as  our neighboring island, Roatan.

My buddy needed to buy some electrical power (strange how people go buy power a little at a time) so we went to the power company office where I waited outside snapping photos while he took care of business.

We made several runs by the public beach where the crowds were gathering to enjoy themselves and I…of course…photographed lovelies!
