Mike and I explored the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula for 2 weeks of flyfishing (Mike), diving (Stacey), snorkeling, Maya ruins, a colonial city, cenotes, quite a few hammocks and lots of great food.

When Mike flew home I headed to San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas for 2 weeks of Spanish study with a small group in tow. We lived with host families and visited area sights including villages, museums, and ruins.

When the group flew home I bused to San Pedro La Laguna on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala for a week of planning for future growth of the Beca Project (link below) and meeting our sponsored kids and their families.

When our daughter Mariah and her husband Greg invited us to share a timeshare in Quintana Roo between Christmas and New Years, a new chapter to this blog was added. HAPPY TRAILS!

Quiet Day on Isla Mujeres

After yesterday's adventures it was good to have a quiet day. No alarm clock (we've had a surprising number of days with those due to fishing, diving, and beating the heat and crowds at the ruins), breakfast in, strolling around town, a bit of preparation for our flights and my upcoming weeks. Mike flies home tomorrow afternoon and I fly to Merida for the night, then on to Chiapas Sunday. Pictured below are bits of our last day together in Mexico:

Mike's dream breakfast - good coffee with cereal, oats, granola, milk, yogurt, and a whole mango

People watching from the balcony

The outside of our apartment - 2nd floor surrounded by the balcony, door is the dark one at lower left

The old guy by the beach I bought a shell necklace from

A beautiful flower I found on the sidewalk after a heavy rain

A 4 eyed butterfly fish from our (not very productive) snorkeling foray off the beautiful Playa Norte (North Beach)

  1. You are WONDERFUL travelers!

    We went to Isla last year and spent a week there, in and out of the water. Going again this year, and hope to get hubby to go to Valladolid & Ek Balam with me for an overnight: I think your blog might convince him!

    Thank you!
