Living A Dream (Literally)

I am an Island girl, born and raised. Growing up in the Cayman Islands, as well as traveling to the Bahamas with my family when I was younger, means I have experienced lots of snorkeling, fishing, and ocean life. I have had huge manta rays swim right beneath me, and 7-foot barracudas inches away from my face. But not even these childhood memories could have prepared me for the beauty that I was blessed to discover here in Utila, Honduras.

Growing up in the Rocky Mountains, my children are more accustomed to hiking, sledding, and wanting to Build a Snowman™ (yeah, you’re singing that song now) than anything ocean-related. Yet, they have a great passion for marine life. Perhaps it comes from our great aquarium in Denver or their parents’ love of scuba diving. My son, at age three, cast aside all young boy aspirations of being a police officer or firefighter for the noble profession of marine biologist. It has been three years since his first proclamation and he has not wavered. Lucky for us all, our family visits family in the Caribbean every year, including one of our favorites, Coral Beach Village in Utila.
