Oh, Mexico

"The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I'll have to go now"

Love that song.

Anyway, here is a picture tour of our trip to Cancun.  Just what the doctor ordered - relaxing, eating, lots of sleep, icy drinks, general lounging about... was a great way to celebrate my transition into a new "job."  We didn't do much besides get our tan on, but we did take a day trip to Isla Mujeres, which was totally gorgeous and more rustic than Cancun itself.  Our resort (Gran Melia) was super nice (and affordable, thanks to some super-research that Tony did!)  It was fabulously relaxing.

This is the hotel lobby!  Vines hang down from the top - pretty impressive!

Looks fake!

Early morning before the swim up bar really got going

View from our balcony

Approx. 10 am here.

OF COURSE we had to rent a golf cart on Isla Mujeres!  It's in our blood!

Impossibly beautiful.

This is the easternmost point of all of Mexico - and the first place to see the light of dawn every moment.  No wonder it was the site of an ancient Mayan temple - those cliffs, the beautiful sea... nothing short of spiritual.

The Eastest Mexican! 

Can you spot the iguana?

The requisite "look! i was really there - there are my feet!" photo


  1. WOW. WOW. WOW. (yes, 3 "WOW's")

    The view is just absolutely incredible!!!

    LOVE the one with just the drink and straw!! And the "feet photo"!!

    Yes, a perfect transition into your new life =).

  2. That looks soooooo lovely! :)

  3. When I saw Tony holding those coconuts, I thought, "what-a-mellon" :)

  4. I am now dying to go to the beach! What a beautiful place to vacation! I'm glad you guys had fun!

  5. That looks like an amazing vacation. I went to Cancun a million years ago for my senior trip and it was so fun. I mostly remember those white sand beaches and warm ocean water. Just beautiful.
