Once upon a time I wrote weekly blogs all about Cozumel. The many places to see, the variety of things to do, and the people you might well want to meet. In fact, you´ll be able to find those on the right side. Looking for a particular place? Just type the name in the search column and if I was there, and I enjoyed the experience, I wrote about it. I never accepted invitations though, that kept me honest. They also come with stories and pics.
But, then life happened and I stopped for a while. However, with little to no fanfare, I´m back. This time will be more simple (and less expensive for me). I used to visit lots of locations and I always paid my own way. So, now, these will be a little different. Just casual walkabouts with a few pretty pictures for those who love the island is my plan. Whether you live here, wish you did, or have visited and miss us, these pics are for you. Not a professional, but, ever since my dad put a Rolleiflex in my hands when I was 6, I´ve been hooked on capturing moments. I hope you enjoy.
Today´s photos are a variety of what could be seen while riding a bike around the island at about 8 this morning. There is one exception, the flower you see above. It was one of my cactus flowers and I just like the pic. But, back to the moment. We have many new, and gorgeous, murals by artists from around the world, and you´ll see a few of those. Otherwise, just the beauty that is all around us, along with a few fun things such as hauling big boats and hawking restaurant wares.
I finally got to see how they tow the huge boats from the water to the dry land. Took far less time than I´d thought, but then there was hook up and drop off. I didn´t stick around to see those.
One of the things I enjoy the most is the locals who are happy to pose, especially if it is in front of their place of work. This fun guy was busily using his best Spanglish explaining how good their lobster is, all while finding the best place to stand. Now, I have eaten here, great guacamole and ceviche, but I haven´t tried their lobster, yet.
Here is another mural I discovered on the backside of Chedruai. I must admit, this is one of my favorites. Beautiful art that will last years by world renowned artists.
I have to include an homage to our divers. It´s certainly a beautiful day above the surface, hope you enjoy the colors below as well.
Let me leave you with a few more pics that include the water, our lighthouse, and someone´s tree charm. This was fun, for me, to once again see the island´s beauty.
Not sure when I´ll be back, but it will be soon. Will try and get the feel of the island for those who miss it. And capture the images for those who live here and love it! Salud!
