  1. Jenna,
    Looks like you are having a wonderful time at Roatan. I can't believe how beautiful the coral reef is there. What is the coral that looks like a vase
    or chimney. I never saw that before. Have you seen any sharks? Have you gone diving at night yet. That seems to scary for me! I went scuba diving
    once off of St. Kits and that was enough for me; my ears hurt for weeks after. I bet you could use a Gopro down there. Maybe Santa will bring you
    one next Christmas. I went swimming with the dolphins once in Mexico and that was the best time I ever had in the water. Well have fun,
