I'm Back!

We are back from our very wonderful Caribbean cruise. We lucked out on the weather, though at times it was a bit hot and humid. Here are a few photos of our adventure.

This is the ancient Mayan city of Xunantunich in the jungle of Belize. We walked to the top of this temple and enjoyed a great view. A lot of people in the past only went up once.

This is the Mayan city of Tulum which is perched on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea in Mexico.

And in Grand Cayman we did the stingray and dolphin encounter which was a lot of fun. We tool a 30 minute boat ride to a sandbar where very tame stingrays of all sizes would swim around their visitors.

How exciting!!!! You and Kim are back from that tropical paradise just in time for the fall. What great photos but I know they don't do what you saw and experienced justice. I can hardly wait to see more. Welcome back!

Beautiful photos, Edward. Course, the stingray one is a tad frightening to think on. I am amazed at the beautiful and clean waters! So lovely! Hope you paint from your photos or your memories. They will be fabulous!

I'm ready to pack my bags. I had no idea stingrays could be tame. Wasn't it a stingray that killed Steve Irwin?
