Isle Mujeres Part 3

This is the last post of Mexico. Our wonderful hosts, the Bacon family, were just fantastic!  Marnie's yoga classes were restorative as always but to be in that envrionment was transformative. Her classes are just lovely.  I learned a lot too- each day was themed...I even made the chanting meditation on the last day and so glad- I hope to do more of that.  Marnie's parents (who have come every year to this beautiful island for 35 years now) made sure we were all situated and were there for anything we needed- they also organized a snorkeling trip and golf cart tour and lunch all of which were a blast! 
I am so grateful to them and for having had this experience.

I love the colors of Mexico!

I tried sketching this- it was a challenge to find spots to perch....

This plant nursery was behind the hotel .

Can't beat the beaches there...

We visited a Turtle farm where turtles are hatched and brought up to be released into the ocean...

Love religious stuff - not that I am religious but I do love churches and statuary)

This is me on the very most Southern part of the island- lots of rusty sculptures there - and a Mayan ruin at the tip- it's the place to see the sun rise (I'm told!)

Our group at lunch in a fun Cuban restauant right on the lagoon- hats off to our waiter who handled 18 of us wonderfully) It was DELICIOUS

The fish was super fresh- he showed it to us in the bucket before it was grilled.

Me on left, Jayne and Leslie- new friend!

Love hibiscus flowers- falling at my feet...

Live music on the ferry-
At the Airport. 
Thanks for looking. I must say- blogging is about sharing of course- but doing this is also a record for me as well- I will forget too soon!
I am home now trying to figure out how to make my house more colorful.
