Starfish all over
We got ourselves a boat to go around Roatan. Captain Ronaldo Diaz, a portly local with a very friendly demeanor, took us to where the dolphins were. On the way, we were cruising over a shallow patch when he asked us “Do you want to see starfish?”. Of course, we said “Yes”.
He stopped the engines and to our complete surprise, jumped off the boat into the water! He quickly grabbed couple of brown looking stuff that we would have mistaken for rocks and brought it up to show us.
I cannot remember if I have seen a starfish being held by anybody before.
