The weekly photo challenge Afloat brings me back to Honduras again this week, but not only there, as it’s a Central American double.

Firstly to Panama, and the Bocas del Toro islands. Taken from Isla Caranero, a lone Stand Up Paddleboarder eyes the shore of Bocas Town on Isla Colon, and the threatening sky behind.


Back in Honduras, a little more light-hearted take on the theme, as swim-up bar takes on a whole new meaning in Roatan – the infamous Reef Rider docked offshore at West Bay. In case you’re wondering, there was a water taxi available to shuttle you to (and more importantly given the strength of rum on-board, from) the bar, but where’s the fun in that??!
