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.

Self Portrait

8"x10" oil on canvas
This is my contribution to Michelle Burnett's Following the Masters blog. The current challenge is to do a self portrait, and since I haven't done one in many years, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity.
