July 2021 - Cenotes Punta Esmeralda and Azul, Volley Ball, Copa America, Residency

A fun month making it to a few Cenotes, stepping up my Volley Ball abilities, enjoying Copa America and the big one of getting my Temporary Residency, yeah!

Spending a morning at Punta Esmeralda only a 10 minute bike ride from the centre on Playa del Carmen with the lovely Ana. A little crowded, but hey what do you expect for a small free cenote in the city.

I've seen deeper!


Fun in the sun

Let there be Volley Ball...every day, week, month...

Volley ball warriors

Great play in video evidence!

Cenote Azul new to me and one of my favourites so far.  I love the wide open style cenotes.  Great colours and water temperature too.

One of the first to arrive

Hi Ana

So clear

Love these little dead skin eaters

Love this place

Argentina vs Brazil for Cup of America.  Who looks more like an Argentinian me or Leandro??

A night in Cancun at Sol y Mar before going to Immigration to get my Temporary Residency, BOOM!

Room with a view from the master bedroom of a 4 bedroom 4 story split level beach front villa.

Viva la Vida de Villa!!

Nice balcony

Good life

After 2 months and $650 usd I received my Temporary Residency good for 4 years which may just be the place to hangout during the craziness.

June 2021 - Making Moves, Life to the Dogs and Cats, Cenote Eco Aldea Hatsuts

In this month I found a new home, bonded with my new furry friends, had a photo shoot at a cenote, watched Habs make Stanley Cup and managed to open a bottle of wine with a screw and pliers amongst other fun moments...

Moved in to my new Home (oops)
It's not a broken home, really!

Let's get the pets section out of the way!  My new roommates Chato the cat and Fivy the dog. Animals are cute aren't they.

Is there room for one more?
"Step Dad, what?"

Got to rinse off the salt water
You think I can use this?

Trying to find a quiet spot

Going better

Cat poo to some or a 
tasty treat to others
Looks like enough space



Time flies as they say.  A nice dinner at Trattoria del Centro to celebrate.

Really only 2 months?

Salmon and mussels

A very lovely time at Cenote Eco Aldea Hatsuts very off the beaten trail approximately 15 min drive West of Playa del Carmen, plus a 20 minute walk to get to the cenote. Thanks to Alba for inviting us to enjoy the place before the wedding party arrived.

"Come here often?"

"Are you spying on me?"
"Oh what a feeling dancing on the ceiling"

Go Habs Go.  Montreal Canadians made it to the Stanley Cup final against Tampa Bay Lightning.  First Canadian team since 2011.
