The Squirrels of Quintana Roo

During our second walk through the Jungle on this Mexican Odyssey my wife noted that we had never seen a squirrel in the Yucatan. I think she is right although I am no expert. What you do see, almost as much as you would see squirrels, are Iguanas

They are not nearly as annoying. They don’t run around like crazy irritating every dog on the planet. They don’t throw crap at you when you are setting up a tent. They have mystique because thanks to Ray Harryhausen we think of them as dinosaurs and for some reason we all love dinosaurs.

Tulum Wildflowers

These could be weeds for all I know but I found the colors to be striking especially against the rocks of ancient ruins. The ruins are in Tulum Mexico in the state of Quintanna Roo. I love visiting Mayan ruins in Mexico, it brings out my inner Indiana Jones.

Mayan Dragon

The Mayan Museum in Cancún Mexico is divided in to two parts. There is an archaeological site with jungle ruins and some simulations of Mayan life. The interior of the museum has exhibits of Mayan culture and examples of artwork and crafts.

This colorful dragon was situated on the ground floor near the entrance to the ruins.

Sunset at La Isla Dora

Our condo in Cancún is located on La Isla Dora on the Caribbean Sea. Across the street is a shopping center with a dock overlooking the lagoon. It is a perfect place to capture the sunset.

Thinking About Mexico

While most people are thinking about Christmas and New Year’s I’m not. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Being Jewish, Christmas is not such a big thing for me and going out on New Year’s is nuts in my opinion. My father used to call it “amateur night” and it was the one night a year he didn’t drink much.

Since retirement, this is the time of year we usually escape the cold. This year we are planning three weeks in Mexico. This is me in January and I can’t wait.

At The Beach

 

Sunblock

There is a short period of time after the sun rises when the sky still has brilliant color but the sun is already to bright to photograph. The challenge is to find an object to partially block the rising sun to allow you to continue shooting.

This thatched beach hut in Cancun Mexico provided a perfect sunblock and a beautiful sky.
