I'm Back Briefly

I'm back from Cancun, Mexico!
Chichen Itza was one of our day trips. My face is beet red as it was a very hot day!

Have to share this photo of one of the Maya underground areas. Pictures don't do it justice.

We had a fun filled week of sight-seeing, eating and drinking way too much (gained a few) but mostly I simply enjoyed doing nothing but watching the blue water and relaxing. We took well over 500 photos. The stitchery remained untouched the whole trip. The day we packed to leave my husband moved the sewing kit from the checked bag to our carry on with concerns of weight. My little cheap scissors were confiscated at the security gate.
Now that I'm home I've been catching up on all before flying to CA on Tuesday to see mom for two weeks.

Oh Mary, the Maya underground makes my imagination flick to "on." What must it have been like so very long ago to the natives. A place like this makes me feel, well, spiritual.

Looks like heaven. Glad to hear you had a great time.

Yay! You're back! I know that's probably selfish of me, since you probably wanted to stay longer. I just missed chatting with you!

Wonderful pictures. What a beautiful place to visit. Looks very relaxing.

Welcome Back! It looks beautiful there, one day Clint will take me there. He's promised me that already. Maybe for our 25th anniversary too!
Have a wonderful time with your Mom.

Kaaren said...

Welcome home, Mary...albeit for a short time. Just enough time to wash your clothes and repack for your trip out west.

The photos are spectacular. Oh to dip my toes in the ocean again...sigh.

Stina said...

The Quilt Buddy said...

Oh Mary....I am so jealous! What a fabulous trip! (Next time you can take me with you! I'll carry your bags and fetch your drinks for you)

HUGS!

Karen said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful time!
Now you have just enough time to catch up on the mountain of laundry and hill of mail before you are off again!
Have a super visit with your Mom!! Sounds like you probably don't get to see her that often since she is way over on the West coast. Have a great 2 weeks!
