Our rooms had no flowers on greeting (unlike other Island Resorts we've visited)

Buddy Dive did give each of us a t-shirt & a free rum punch.
Food here is either poor, but with good service,

Breakfast is buffeteria-style, serve yourself,
a little upscale from CoCo View & Utila Lodge (Honduras),
but still much the same food items.

Locals enjoying the beach
There are six of us sharing a three-bedroom suite.
Each room has its own bath and we share kitchen & patio.
Had some rain yesterday, but it was light, not bitterly cold like in Honduras,
nor did it last the entire day, but was off most of the time we were out on the water.
Diana breaks her ankle on step 999.
She was going down to what was to be her second dive of the trip.
The long walk down was long, but the last three steps had uneven rise,
and sand/shell covered "floor." Neal almost fell there, too.
Fortunately, they had Dr. Ford & fireman EMT, Brian Doverspike,
with them for advice & care before the ambulance came.
On Wednesday, Neal writes:
Jim & Diana flew out yesterday at DAN's (Diver's medical policy)
directions so the repair could be done in US by a specialist.
The tibia was jammed into the ankle bone so hard the ends split like bamboo.
The repair will be very difficult so she doesn't end up with a frozen joint;
even so, she'll probably get arthritis and have discomfort the rest of her life.
