Why I Haven’t Blogged for a Week!

Why haven’t I blogged in a whole week? My car broke down and I was stuck for a week waiting for a tow truck? I’m in Mexico and the internet has been down? (that one is true, actually!) My dog ran away and I’ve been chasing him? What other lame excuse can I come up […]

I finally went out and bought a macro lens, and while I cannot […]

Randy and I have been snorkeling every day for the first time since his double lung transplant almost two years […]

On Cozumel, the best place to night dive (in my humble opinion) is Paradise Reef. […]
