A few pictures of Bill, the fisherman. What a catch!

Snorkeling in the reef was an exciting experience. I loved all the colorful fish that were swimming in front of me. When the photographer's camera flashed, the beautiful colors were gone. It was beautiful viewing everything in the reef in crystal clear water. In the bottom picture is our guide Ricardo, who served sodas and margaritas on our glass bottom boat.

Well, I finally got my profile updated tonight. I guess I can now unveil my new blog to friends and family, since I had not done so previously. I hope to add some new scrapbook pages in the next several days. Check out my pages when you get a chance, and I'd love to hear your comments. Thanks so much for looking.

What an awesome adventure in Roatan. It was fun having pirate's greet us when we arrived on the island. Getting on a motorcycle to cruise the island was quite an adventure also, but we later got a guide to show us some out-of-the-way lovely places. We played on the West End beach for awhile, and later went to visit a secluded area, which had a pavilion over the water that the locals dive from.
Taking a brief moment for a picture at the beach before leaving Costa Maya. We had a wonderful time touring the Mayan Ruins, and checking out all the colorful shops. The turquoise, crystal clear water was unbelievably beautiful.

Great picture of Jodi and Bryan in Colorado at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. I know she could never pass up an opportunity to have a picture taken with a giraffe. Let's see Jodi, you now have how many giraffes on display in your home?.....about 300?
This was Jodi's moment of a lifetime at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado. Her passion is giraffes, and ever since she saw the giraffe webcam online, her desire was to visit this wonderful zoo. That dream was fulfilled in 2008, and she got to share some special moments with so many beautiful giraffes.
We decided to take a little road trip on Memorial Day weekend, and decided to go to Bayside. There is not much of anything there, but the bay next to the road is very lovely, and there were many types of coastal birds. These are just a few of the photos from our day.
Bill just happened to notice that this little guy was popping his head in and out of the hole of his tunnel. Even though I have always seen gopher mounds in both of our yards, I have never seen a gopher do this repeatedly before. Once again, Bill's timing was just right. We were walking a circle around the Big Tree in Lamar when Bill noticed him, and captured a photo of The Elusive Gopher.
We took a road trip to Bayside (Yeah, I know.... there's nothing there but a few houses, but there is a lot of the bay and plenty of birds near the road), and on the way back, I asked Bill to turn around, because I had seen a deer. Never thinking she would still be there, I was pleasantly surprised to see her staring at us. Bill took a picture of her at the perfect moment.
This photo really touches my heart -- an affectionate kiss for a beautiful friend. Bill and I just love to go to the fence and visit Dandy and her sister, Bear. They love the attention, and the carrots, apples, and Popeye's Biscuits.
