Thoughts Thoughts


I don’t want to torture anybody too much with vacation pictures, but I just thought I’d share a few here with you today.

The place we are staying at is painted this glorious yellow color that changes with the light.

There are lots of iguanas around - large and small. Most of them appear to be suffering from having their tail pulled off at some point or another, and you can see the tail re-growth clearly on this guy we met on the beach the other day.

Part of the Coba Mayan Ruins that we visited yesterday. See how the tree roots have formed around the archway?

A handsome pelican.

The sunset from our house on Tuesday night.

Today we went snorkeling at Cenote Dos Ojos. Cenotes are fresh water pools with underground rivers and caverns. We snorkeled where we could, but it seemed that the best way to see this particular cenote was with scuba gear on. There were tons of scuba divers there. Amanda and I have pretty significant claustrophobia and aren't all that fond of creatures that live in the ocean and other bodies of water, so we were pretty creeped out by the whole thing. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it again.

We went to Tulum today after our Cenote Dos Ojos snorkeling adventure, and they had beautiful beaches with white sand as soft as powder.

    Love, Love you sharing your family vacation! Have spent time on the Mexican Riviera, Playa del Carmen, diving the Palancar Reef and you took me back to that magical time and place. Mahalo nui loa!!

    • We were in Akumal, about 30 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. It was so beautiful and we had such terrific weather too!
