No Matter How far I Roam, I always come Home to Cozumel

The first sunset from the deck.

I have roamed all over our amazing planet, and there is so much more to see! Having walked on seven continents, I have been privileged to see the most beautiful, fantastic, and incredible sights. Every place is so different and so unique, and I have loved all of my travels, and treasure my experiences, both good and bad. Travel is the very best teacher, and for me, a way to learn, humble, and challenge myself at the same time. But…no matter how far I roam, the colors of Cozumel always awe and thrill me. This easy, breezy, non-pretentious island welcomes me home, I am reminded every time I come why I love it so much.

My main dive buddy, Yasser, of We-B-Divin’ Cozumel. Been diving with this wonderful guy for 17 years!

We Love our island. And yes, it is MY island.

The ocean has many colors of blue, and the diving here is wonderful. I always forget the mountains of colorful corals and the creatures of Cozumel.. I love to dive the multi-faceted reefs here, and now I am trying my hand at macro photography (close up photography as the pictures below) I am discovering new dive sites and meeting new people!

First macro dive off Tikila with Mario Ceh was fantastic! I can’t wait to go again!

One of the most beautiful sights are these flowing social feather dusters. They are actually worms!

It is a small world, as we all know. My next door neighbor and friend Lyn and I have been coming to Cozumel together for longer than I want to admit! Ten years ago Lyn brought some friends down and one of the women happened to be the mother of a school mate of my daughter’s. A few nights ago, her son had his wedding at Villa Torres, and the ceremony was on my front yard! It was so exciting for me to be able to give them a place for their ceremony! The sunset at the end of the ceremony was so dramatic it must be a good omen for the bride and groom!

An incredible sunset finish to a wonderful wedding! It must be a good omen!

My husband, Randy, has been delayed, but I hope he gets down here any day now. He loves the island as much as I do.

  3. I can see why this is home to you. It’s so beautiful, and it must feel so good every time you get back there.

      It is my ocean home. It is always beautiful here, that’s for sure! Dallas is where I spend the majority of time, but I love coming back to Cozumel, home sweet ocean!

  4. I first visited Cozumel in January 1975 as part of a college course. It was so different with only a few hotels. We were able to ride our bikes to La Playa San Francisco with no car traffic. Food was actually hard to come by. Cancun hadn’t yet been developed. The Mexican Minister of Tourism showed us the plans. What a difference 47 years (gulp!) makes.

      I was first here in 1986. A few hotels were here, and a few restaurants, but it was very quaint and small. Yes, it is quite different now, but still has beautiful sealife.
