A Canadian from Roatan in Texas

9 Jan

My time in Texas is winding down, in less than a week I will be back on Roatan. I can already feel the Caribbean sea-salt tinged, gloriously moist air, replenishing my parched, okay… downright flaky skin. I’ll, once again, marvel at the lush, every shade of green, jungle foliage crowding the roadside, and climbing to the highest peeks of the central ridge. I’ll watch the sunrise, peeking through the cashew tree leaves outside my home, and the sunset on the Caribbean Sea from the dock–with a glass of wine in-hand.

I’ll spend time with my Island family & friends enjoying their company and catching up on all the Roatan “coconut-line news.” I see a turkey dinner in my near future (we had ham and scalloped potatoes for Christmas Dinner in Texas–hint, hint, Bonnie.) I’ll visit the new library in Sandy Bay (take lots of pictures at the grand opening Cam, so I can include them in a story I’ll post here soon), and I’ll visit my good friend Joan at the library in French Harbour. I’ll check out the new location of 101.1 FM Roatan Radio at Sundowners and prepare for the relaunch of the Roatan Vortex Show, with DJ Genevieve (I’ll tell you more about that later, and the The Roatan Vortex Book coming soon too!) and I’ll get back to helping out with the Roatan Daycare Center in Coxen Hole. I’ll feed the hummingbirds, pet my dog Mona, and get tripped up by Baby (my cat) winding between my feet.

And, of course, I’ll also return to swatting mosquitoes, checking under my pillow for scorpions, and drifting off to sleep to the sounds of dogs barking, roosters crowing, and all those other night sounds special to Roatan. Ahhh… Home Sweet Home!

Right now though, I’m in Harlingen Texas, having a great time visiting with my Mom and step-dad, and I want to share a little of that with you. The last time my mom and I spent time together was over a year ago, lots of catching up to do–and in these past 5-1/2 weeks we have!


Playing “Scrabble” is our quality time of choice. So far we have played 24 times, and won 12 games each! The most interesting pattern has emerged; one of us wins by a fair margin, the next game the other one does. But, more often than not, the final scores are within 1 or 2 points of each other, and four have even ended in a TIE!

We caught a few movie:
“You Again” –cute. “Afterlife” –good premise, fall asleep yawner (Robert Redford directed, need I say more.) “Burlesque” –loved it! “Skyline” –the worst acting award belongs here. “Gulliver’s Travel” –ah, No! “Burlesque” –went to see it a second time. Still to see, “Black Swan.”

We’ve done some shopping, and dining out–of course we have! Mom introduced me to a couple of great Thrift Stores, a book store, and an art supply store. We explored a few Dollar Stores, and found some treasures at the mall. The one thing I was most intrigued with at the mall had nothing to do with making a purchase though. It was a glass booth you could go inside and experience–hurricane force winds–huh? We ate at a few excellent Tex-Mex restaurants, “Olive Garden” twice, and the “Texas Roadhouse” was also worthy of a couple of visits.

The only time I had spent in Texas (before this visit) was waiting for connecting flights at the airport in Houston. So, in-between quality time with my mom, she and Ron have been my tour guides, taking me to the places unique to this part of Texas. Among other things, we checked out the local flea market, and made quite a few day trips to Progreso, Mexico, and South Padre Island.

Did I mention–I’m having a great time in Texas? –oh ya, I did! Did I mention–I’m also looking forward to going home to Roatan? –of course I am!
