February 2024 - Sun's Up, Fun's Up. Superbowl. Touring around the Mayan Riviera.

In this month I tried to see the sun rise every morning, hosted a few friends, enjoyed kayak snorkeling in the sea and Cenote Azul, and hit the road to Puerto Morelos and Cancun a few times. 

The best way to start a month is when the sun comes up.  Decided to see sunrise everyday of the month which also meant I was in bed before midnight everyday.  Changing patterns! Plus much easier to catch sunrise in Feb than June when the sun comes up at 7:30 and not 6am.  

Coco beach

Super early

Tried calle 38 beach...once and only once

Plate smashing excitement as my friend Viviana from Mexico City came for a visit at the beginning of the month.

Horrible dish rack, larger plate...
...Equals a million pieces

Hanging at playa 72
Checking out Punta Esmeralda Cenote

Looking back to my love, Coco Beach

Felt like a scene from a horror movie as we came up to this boat which appeared to be anchored on the reef, wtf?  In the end it turned out to have gotten free from its anchor and was floating off to sea...  We weren't the only ones to see this as by the time we got back to shore the boat had already been retrieved and anchored again.  All the same a little creepy...

Never dangerous unless you tickle their head
with your toes

Spent an afternoon in the highly tourist Cenote Azul. It's good, but of course now at $12/person...

I like the weirdness of this photo

Pretty clear water in these cenotes.  Chilly though


It's high season

Absolutely love the photobomb here!!!

Good fun

Smokyhouse Brisket/Ribs, Yum!
