Another windy day so instead of taking the porta-bote out, we fish off of No Name Key Bridge… right next to the Old Wooden Bridge Marina where we’ve rented a boat slip for the month. We’ve caught various fish from the bridge before… namely, Cero Mackerel and Black Grouper but today we learned how to fish for giant tarpons!
We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… a Sloth. We didn’t know what to expect from visits to these wildlife sanctuaries and so we were very delighted to see and hold a Sloth… although, I don’t know if it’s a guaranteed experience by the tour vendor. This particular sloth was more social and had a good temperament for visitors. We were told usually they’re up in the trees so it was a great treat!
Haven’t tried fishing from any of the bridges here in the Florida Keys. It’s too windy to take the porta-bote out anyways. We head to No Name Key Bridge… right next to the Old Wooden Bridge Marina where we’ve rented a boat slip for the month. What an exciting day of fishing it was, too! Bill caught a Cero Mackerel and I caught a nicely sized (3-5lb) Black Grouper.
You may recognize White Sands in the Movies – Young Guns II, Transformers, Transformers 2, Mad Love and Book of Eli (… the movies I’ve seen). We couldn’t pass through New Mexico without this pitstop only an hour from our RV Park.
Day 22 RVing: We’ve been driving 5 hours from Tucson to Las Cruces. We needed a much needed fun break.
Right next door to Tucson, Arizona adventure awaits in Vail! It took some convincing as Bill had some anxiety about caving since I was looking into a “Wild Cave Tour – Advanced (3-5 hours).” You’re warned that “Participants must be physically fit, agile, and able to scale obstacles.”
Dinner in Little Italy, Downtown San Diego which has been “a stable ethnic business and residential community, since the 1920′s.” Only a few minutes walk from Billy Jr’s place… so very convenient and we can see why they love where they live! Little Italy is central… right next to Interstate-5 and the San Diego International Airport. So many choices for dining here! Our choice for the evening – Burger Lounge.
“Waimea Valley was carved by rain and wind from the flank of the Ko‘olau Mountain range some two million years ago. With its range of habitats stretching from the dry, salty sea shore to the cool, misty uplands, Waimea Valley became home to a vast array of ferns, flowering plants, invertebrates, birds, stream life, and Hawaii’s only land mammal, the hoary bat.” – WaimeaValley.net
