Twitter’s #FriFotos theme this week is POOL. I don’t usually take photos of pools, so I wasn’t sure I’d have anything to share…especially since I live in Western Washington where pools are few and far between. Then I remembered an incredible place I visited the last time I was in Mexico…Ik Kil Cenote. I realize […]
I’m extremely infatuated with the sun. Everywhere I travel includes attempts to capture sunrise or sunset photos. In many instances I’m left disappointed by my photography skills. But, occasionally I capture something that I truly love. This particular photograph was taken at sunrise on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. All I had to do was step outside […]

My friend Barb and I visited Isla Mujeres in September 2011. We rented a condo and although we ate some of our meals in, we did venture out to restaurants frequently. We used TripAdvisor as our guide and in most cases we agreed with the ratings that the places got, but in some we disagreed […]

I’m so excited to be going to Isla Mujeres/Cancun. Normally I wouldn’t be so excited about going to a very touristy city, but that’s why we chose to stay on Isla Mujeres. My biggest reason for going is to visit Chichen Itza and Tulum. Yep…more ruins for me. My friend Barb has decided to go […]
