|Yes we do!|
With no set plans for Christmas Day, it was a slow start with most people making the most of the time difference to butt in on Christmas dinner at home. I even got to be guest of honour back in Scotland, propped up on the iPad at the top of the table wearing my cracker hat!
Our main purpose in coming to Utila had been to learn to scuba dive and we started on Boxing Day afternoon at the dive school attached to our hostel, Underwater Vision. Almost everyone had never done it before so were all in the same boat. To start with it was a lot of theory but it wasn't long before we were doing confined dives by the dock and then the proper open water dives.
Hogmanay was spent at Trudy's party up until midnight at which point we transferred to a beach party down the road. While I rung in the new year in Honduras with the family I've made here, I had managed to ring it in at home while on the phone to my real family six hours earlier.
One more day was spent lazing not around on what has to be one of the most chilled out islands in the world before it was back to just the six of us and we set off for our next stop - Mexico!
|Obviously we couldn't go without the annual Christmas photo|
|Possibly the only picture of everyone together and even then only Peter's forehead made it in!|
