For my own sake, I have to do a post on my most wonderful trip last week to the coolest, quaintest seaside town of Akumal, Mexico. (My kids didn't even want me to disclose the location because it is such a gem!) It was a family trip in lieu of Spring Break (yes, in October) now that sports and travel schedules don't accomodate that traditional getaway in March or April.
I have to admit I was a little nervous with it being on the tail-end of hurricane season but were blessed with the most perfect weather...eight days of sunshine and eighty degrees! (Even more blessed than we realized as we came home to the first snowflakes of the season?!?! Eek.)
I also made an attempt to be as "unplugged" as possible and recharge. Limited wi-fi helped my cause but it was sure refreshing to just simply soak it all in and enjoy.
Sun. Sand. Breezes. Giggles. Games. Nature. Family. New faces. Food. Colors. Culture. Language. Treasures. Music. Heaven.
As this awesome week already seems forever ago, our sun-kissed cheeks are fading and unplugged is no longer an option, I thought I'd share a few (okay, more than a few but it was so hard to narrow them down!) of my favorite things from the trip...if not for ongoing inspiration but to make me smile and warm up.
Deep sea fishing with Capt. Rick's.
Trip highlight: helping baby sea turtles get to the ocean after they hatched. A-mazing.
Salud! Muchas gracias! Mu-wahh Akumal! We'll be back...
