This very cool moth with transparent plastic-like sections on her wings was sitting on our gate as we were leaving the house.
Posting the photo on this facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheEntomologyGroup with over 47,000 members worldwide, identified it as a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothschildia. I love that entomology group because members worldwide post the coolest photos of insects you could never even imagine!
Returning from an invitation only REMAX training event in Denver, and having some potential visitors contacting me about travel plans, I realized that the difficulty in arriving to Utila was much higher than I had thought.
Perhaps because I was accustomed to helping customers make their travel plans when we had a scuba center, I hadn't really considered what it was like having someone plan their trip without aid.
Therefore, I endeavour to make my 'travel' page a source of up to date and relevant info to help you make your trip to Utila easier.
I'll post some fares that can help you arrive affordably, or help your friends and family visit you.
Did you know that American Airlines flies twice daily now to San Pedro Sula, in addition to direct flights from Dallas. See below for the schedule, which is also posted on my website Travel Page.
You'll also find the three travel agencies on Utila, all of whom can help you get to Utila easier. If all else fails, contact me and I'm happy to help.
Spectators were treated to an exciting game with Utila Women's Select Team "Utila Girls" against the team from Guanaja. With a sound victory of 6-1, there were several shots on goal from both teams, making for an incredible game for just less than a buck!
Winning against La Ceiba on Saturday Night with a score of 3-1 seems to indicate that Utila's got a force to be reckoned with. Please come out and support their games to cheer them on and help fund their trips to other towns in Honduras to compete!
Congratulations ladies! You're awesome!
Americans might not realize, but ask a Canadian about the current currency exchange rate. This means for $580CAD or $435 US, you can fly DIRECTLY FROM TORONTO TO ROATAN with Sunwing Charters.
That's a one week getaway that you can't afford to miss!
See my travel page for more info on other options on your visit to Utila.
Hey Mom! I think I found your flight!
Who needs a baseball diamond when you have the beach!
A few small changes are allowed in Island Baseball:
1) The bat is a piece of wood.
2) The ball is a tennis ball.
3) You can 'peg' the batter/runner with the ball, and they're out.
4) The 'sea' is out of bounds.
You also need to be aware of picnic tables, people, rocks, trees, etc., in the field. Other than that, everything is the same. And what's even better is that you can jump in the sea when you're retrieving foul balls, or when the game is over!
This weekend marks a big event in the football life of our 12 year old. Asked to play with the Women's Selection Team, they will be going up against players from neighboring island Guanaja, and the coastal mainland city of La Ceiba.
For just 25 lps, or a little over a U.S. Dollar, you can see this event live at the Frank Morgan Football Stadium up past Countryside. Coming to watch the game shows your support to the team, and helps them financially when it comes time for them to visit other places as the "visiting team".P
Football is Central American Culture. Come taste the excitement! It's exhilarating!
