Roatan Day 1: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Little did I know, approximately one year ago, that the trip to Cayman would be the last trip I would take with Mike. Since then we divorced. It was a traumatic year and this trip was meant to be a rejuvenation for me....a new beginning. I wanted to share that with my lifelong best friend, Brenda. As a result, there was no itinerary. There aren't that many pictures and I couldn't be bothered to take any notes during the trip. This is the best re-creation I can manage based on the memory of a 40+ year old.

We flew separately to Roatan with Brenda going from Houston and me going from Dallas. She was supposed to arrive an hour before me. In typical Brenda fashion, something went wrong and she missed her flight. Luckily, and surprisingly, there was another one that came in about an hour after mine so we were able to meet up without much re-arranging. I never did get an explanation for that mishap.

Once she arrived, we took a taxi to Tranquilseas, a boutique hotel located in the Sandy Bay area of the island. We would be staying in the King Crab room.






We had a prime view of the pool and ocean from our balcony.


It was late afternoon, had been a long travel day (as they always are), and there weren't any other options nearby so we headed to the hotel bar for a pre-dinner drink. Here we met Ricardo, the local bartender who would charm us for the week.

He served up some sangria and some laughs.


We were getting hungry so we took a taxi into town to find a place for dinner. Town was crowded and busy and we had a rough time finding something that was open and didn't have a long wait. We finally settled on Creole's Rotisserie Chicken. It wasn't what we were wanting but hangry-ness was consuming us.


We didn't stay in town long after dinner even though it was a Saturday night and the hotel bar was closed when we got back so off to bed we went.
