We went yesterday and today to the beach a few kilometers down from our hotel. The beach is called West Bay and there are several resorts along it. The snorkeling from the beach is incredible. Less than a hundred feet from the shore you swim along in deep, crystal clear water with huge coral formations on either side of you. There is a channel that runs along through the coral reef, and fish of every kind and color swimming around and through the reef. Amazing. There was a group of scuba divers a little way out from us, and several other snorkelers so we felt less alone and were able to venture further into the unknown. Wow.
We passed this old boat as we walked along the almost deserted beach in between West Bay and the West End (where we are staying). We just couldn't resist, so here is another self-timer photo.
We're headed to Copan tomorrow, so it might be a couple of days before I can post again. This is it for the photos of blue water I think. On to the jungle.
