Some of these photos were taken by Alec and others on our trip.we rented a house in the Bahamas. This year was just as beautiful in Akumal, Mexico!
I don't think I could ever tire of Mexican food...perhaps that's due to growing up in Southern California...but I love all the fresh ingredients. We really liked this restaurant, La Buena Vida... no shoes required... not expensive (no place was very costly in the area) and delicious.
We walked to the Akumal cove, where we snorkeled with lots of endangered, graceful sea turtles.
Another fun time was swimming in the Gran Cenote (cool, refreshing pools and caves).
I'd like to go back and explore other cenotes in the area.
Eric brought water color paint travel sets and it was "chill" time for whoever wanted to pick up a paint brush.
Here is my painting after using the Waterlogue app. But I'm going to put the "not so hot" original on my office message board to relive our time here.
Lots of Rum and Spicy Margarita (just add jalapeno and lime slices) Cocktails...
Want this spicy margarita salt for your next party? I do.
Shopping for local handicrafts... These little purses are made from Huipil, vintage Mayan embroidery.
I bought a pillow made from a vintage huipil and other little items...
I also read this book... The Rocks. It takes place in Mallorca, Spain...great story.
I miss this place already...
Hope your summer is treating YOU well!
