Roatan, Honduras

 French Harbor, Roatan, Honduras is a quiet anchorage iwth great holding ground to anchor in making for a restful night on the hook. Several cruisers got together for dinner at Frenchys 44 restaurant. Great laughs amongst boats traveling north.

 Humor Belcaris, our guide worked a shrimp boat like this one for many years. He explained the responsibilities of the crew and the functioning of the boat to us. We enjoyed our day with him
