Views of Roatan from a cruise ship

Sadly while cruising to beautiful Central America, we had stormy weather follow us.

I am still learning how to take pictures in different lighting and I thought I would practice taking photos in cloudy overcast conditions.

The view of Roatan was stunning, the jungle air was crisp & cool.  My pictures do not do it justice. AT ALL.

Here are a few of the pictures I took from the ship.  (I wanted to drop off my bags and then go back out to port, so I didn’t take many!)

Book Review Sunday

I have lots to say about this book, first this is a great fast paced read for those who love mystery with a little erotica thrown in.

First *claps hands together and rubs quickly* let’s get to Jake.

Jake, sweet sweet Jake. You need a quick swift kick in the balls, I will never understand why tolerating a man’s behavior is hot, but man this kid needs a quick swift kick. Seriously.

Yeah yeah he grows on you and you start to understand him in the end, but man if I did not value my kindle so much it would have been tossed across the room. Ugh.

Which bring me to two my second point of why this book earned 5 stars. I think it is a the sign of a great author when such strong emotion is brought up over a characters. And let me tell you my feelings were strong about him.

I didn’t like him. Sorry ladies I didn’t. I know most will but ugh he sickens me. I don’t care if he had a tough up bringing.

I did however love Charlie & Justin. I loved everything about them. They are a strong characters that have had a tough life too, but they don’t act like sleezeballs like Jake.

Can you tell I don’t like Jake? lol

That being said, the sex is steamy, the mystery is great in this book, and there was even a few minutes that I sat back and said hmmm didn’t see that coming.

If you are in a need a short saucy read, then never fear make it your Special Assignment to read Special Assignment.

Get it? hahaha sometimes I crack myself up!

This booked earned 5 stars from me!

Why I must go back to Belize

I have already wrote a post about my instant love for Belize. I can’t explain the immediate jolt of love I felt the minute I stepped off the ship.

It may have been the sea air, it may have been the people, the wildlife, the experience… it may have been EVERYTHING.

I do know that I will visit Belize again, and I am pretty sure it will be soon.

After swimming the Barrier Reef, we were told we would be taken back to the Island to clean up & spend some time on the island.

I spoke with one of the tour guides before we left about the Manatee Research Center that was on the island and I knew it would be my first stop.

After I quickly changed I went to the facility, no one was in there so I had the place to myself for about 20 minutes.

It was peaceful.  The entire island had this peaceful air to it, when I go back to Belize I am 90% positive I will stay on this island.

It really was remarkable.  Hell I might go back to get my diving certification.  They offer that, and the way I see it, I can get certified here in Texas, or Belize.  ummmm doesn’t seem like rocket science to me.

So rest assured fellow travelers, it is now on my *neverending* bucket list to get Padi Certified in Belize and spend a week in these cabanas.   Plus I really want to swim with the manatees.

Just escape the cubicle already
