Where in the World Can You Hold a Sloth? (Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras)

March 14, 2014 | 4

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! Read More

Fishing: No Name Key Bridge (Big Pine Key, Florida)

March 9, 2014 | 1

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. Read More

Fishing – Pelican’t have the Baby Hammerhead Shark I Caught (Naples Pier, Florida)

February 18, 2014 | 2

We learned that fishing from Naples Pier does not require a fishing license. The only big challenge is finding parking in the winter season as many snowbirds or weather escapees from the north flock to Florida, therefore making parking a premium.

Shark Valley: Everglades National Park (Miami, Florida)

February 7, 2014 |

Time to take the Brompton for a 15-mile bicycling loop in the Florida Everglades… specifically, an area called Shark Valley. They also have a tram tour but biking allows to explore the scenery of the Everglades at our own pace. Read More
