I’ve still got sand in my shoes ... **

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
See it? We spent the last few days of our visit at a tiny beach-side bungalow and went barefoot most of the time. To now put boots on my feet seems ludicrous, but that’s exactly what I did today. It’s a hard transition to make from a turquoise-blue sea and white sand to yellowish-green grass and patches of white snow.

We had a good semi-vacation. The weather was mostly sunny, with some rain showers and clouds mixed in. I sat and watched waves. I swam in the Caribbean Sea. I walked along the beach and let the waves lap at my feet. I swam with dolphins and even gave one a good belly rub. I explored two very different Mayan ruins. I was waited on hand and foot, but also lived pretty rustically for a few days. I fell completely under the spell of Mexico and its people.

All of these things will be shared with you in the days to come. As a teaser I will leave you with this view from our balcony at Dreams Cancun.

so glad it was a lovely break for you

The weather here was awful - your vacation was perfectly timed. I salute you!

Between you and Stephen King (I’m reading his latest book which is set in the Florida Keys) I’m really wishing I wasn’t in Chicago right now.  I’m glad you had fun!

Wonderful!  I am so glad for you - truly - just a little jealous - not much though smile More pictures!
