Utila Island, Honduras

Utila Island, Honduras

Utila, Honduras Dive School

As I have mentioned, my husband is deployed. I hadn’t mentioned where he was because I wasn’t sure if it was okay to talk about.  Turns out I can talk about it, so I thought I would share a few of the picture he sent me from his visit to Utila Island which is one of Honduras’s Bay islands.  He is not deployed to this Utila, Honduras, but was lucky enough to take a little weekend trip there.

He and 4 other guys flew on this tiny little plane over to the island. Personally, I don’t think I would have been able to work up the courage to fly on a plane this small, but I hate flying.

He stayed at a dive center while he got his scuba certification. The stay was included in the price of the lessons.  Apparently they had quite the chef here preparing delicious meals for them every day too. (While I am back home cooking for 3 kids.)  I will have to get the name of the dive school from my husband since I can’t remember it!

Alton’s dive shop – A diving school that provides certification, lodging, and meals.



Here he is a hammock. As you can see he is really suffering on his deployment.  Mean, while I am stuck with three kids back home dealing with all the fun that comes along with that! NOT RIGHT!

    Hi there Megan! He was staying with us when my husband and I were running Alton’s Dive Center. And yes, the awesome chef was Hugh Stewart who is now working as a sous-chef at Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill in Texas.

        Hey Meagan… A year later I find your reply and am replying… We are still here in Utila. I am in real estate with RE/MAX Bay Islands, and my husband is helping Utila Dive Center with their boats.
