Pics from My Birthday In Cozumel

I meant to post these last night, but I was suffering from a case of Montezuma’s Revenge, which, I suppose, was inevitable. Especially when I keep forgetting not to brush my teeth with the sink water. In any case, the Great Spirit of Montezuma must consider himself revenged because I’m fine now.

Here are some pictures of lovely Cozumel. It has a colorful Caribbean vibe to it, and I love how brightly painted everything is.

Here I am on the ferry, very excited to be underway and wearing a hibiscus blossom.Pine green and saffron paint scheme? Why not? I love it! The celebration of color reminded me of New Orleans, even if the architecture was different. I love it when people aren’t afraid of color!

Another reminder of New Orleans. (Ruby, I took this one specifically for you.) Also found out that Cozumel was formerly the stomping grounds of pirates such as Jean Lafitte, so it has that in common with NOLA, too.

Pics of the Day

Today I got to go on the boat while my husband completed a scuba lesson. It was the perfect opportunity to take some nautical photos…

Pics of the Day

Oh, goody! Looks like the WordPress server in Mexico (if there is one) is going to let me post pictures today!

This is the view from my balcony.

There are hibiscus bushes EVERYWHERE. Sometimes I can’t resist plucking one and tucking it behind my ear: Caribbean jewelry.

Mexico is for the birds

There are so many different kinds of birds here, it’s blowing my mind! Here are two. The one in  the lamp is nesting just outside our kitchen  window. The other one lives in  tree by the pool.

{this moment}

I’m posting (very, very) late today because I had a migraine this morning and a funeral to attend. The funeral was for my husband’s grandmother, D., who loved me like one of her granddaughters. I will miss her very much. I took these pictures a few days ago on a walk, while thinking about D. I have been overwhelmed with tasks in preparation for our move, but the day before was the last time I was able to spend time with D. and have a conversation with her. One thing she said to me was “Enjoy your life while you have it. ” And so I took her words to heart and took a break from the packing and minutiae, and went outside to enjoy the wildflowers. After all, the wildflowers will be gone soon, too.
