A Trip to Mexico, the Yucatan, Tulum

Recently, we took a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and explored Tulum and the surrounding areas.   

The trip was a perfect combination of ancient history; tremendous art; sight seeing the diverse landscape; super relaxing beach time; lots of yoga; and, my favorite, inspiration--in the form of textiles and artisan handwork, for which there was plenty.  Oh, and I forget to mention, one night of gale force winds while the Pacific experienced a 'mild' hurricane--yikes!

Here are a few favorite moments from our travels.

Me and my brand new teenage daughter,
in low lights as the hurricane effect
gets the best of all of us, especially the electricity.

elements line up--black coffee, white mug;
