It’s cold, it’s rainy, and I’m bored, so it’s time to start gearing up for my vacation in paradise. Here are some of my favorite Cancun photos. (at least, since I’ve had a digital camera.) I’m having some trouble putting space between lines, so please bear with me as I work though the woes of being a new blogger.
While it’s hard to get too much sun, sometimes there’s nothing better than a lazy afternoon in out of the sun. I captured this picture on one of those rainy days in 2006. This is usually the point when Dad beats me at Scrabble. (The “Q” gets me every time!) At least I hold my own in Rummy.
The iguanas are everywhere, and for the most part are very oblivious to us walking around them. However, every once in a while you’ll get a grumpy one, and he’ll charge you. Totally scary in the moment, but generally harmless.
Dad will, naturally, kill me for posting this picture. But I love it. It’s him (left) with our friend Alan from PA. They look like long lost brothers, drinking beer at 10 am. It’s always happy hour somewhere.
Taking a dip in the cenote (underground sinkholes filled with water) near Ek’ Balam. Kind of spooky when you can’t see what’s underneath you…
The quintessential Chichén Itzá picture. (L-R Uncle Mike, Cancun friend Katherine from Vancouver, cousins Griffin and Bailey, Mom and Dad) Yes, we climbed to the top. All I can say is very narrow steps and lots of scared tourists getting in the way.
Conga line at Pericos a place designed for tourists looking for the crazy Cancun atmosphere. Live mariachi bands, encouraged dancing and drinking… what more can you want for a Thanksgiving dinner? This picture was taken in 2002 right before I graduated college. Fiesta.
There’s no real story to this picture. I don’t even remember where it was taken. I just thought it was pretty and perfectly cliché.
