Well he’s on his third drink before the wheels of the plane leave the ground…
And that’s just the start of a well-deserved, overdue binge
Meanwhile back in the city, certain people are starting to cringe!
You can’t fly to Mexico and NOT have a drink on the plane!
But once at our destination, we were greeted with a candle-lit cabana, cool ocean breezes, and a bottle of wine. We found some grub (and yes, we ate the vegetables, cooked or not... hmmmm) at a local dive down the street, which was also fated to have no electricity this time of night. Candles lit the tables and the bar, and tiki torches led the way to hammocks should you feel the need for a sleep.We spent the night of the full moon outside in the warmth and humidity, listening to waves and wind and the rustle of palm fronds, and watching thick, heavy Caribbean clouds roll in from the sea and careen over and around us. Every once in a while, we could feel a spit of rain from rainstorms that were destined for somewhere else…And though we were travel weary, we found the time and energy to really appreciate the way the full moon rises over the water in the tropics…

I just wanted to drop a note saying that I know I haven't posted in while, and I assure you I have TONS of awesome photos to post from Philadelphia and around Wyoming, and from my recent trip to Tulum, Mexico. While out of the country for the last week, I had ZERO access to internet, and it was ridiculously awesome. I love being unplugged, even if it means being a total slacker.
So until I get all my photos up and running, I leave you with my first shot from Tulum: a long exposure night shot, with the help of the full moon over the Caribbean Sea, taken from just in front of our beach bungalow!

I am now going to take this opportunity to plug a short article of hers, along with a wonderful photo gallery from photographer Geraint Smith. Visit Izilwane.org for some great articles about the human role in nature and why humans actually care about conservation (because let's be honest, most of us genuinely don't care about science).
To check out one of my awesome little pieces (more to come!), go to http://www.izilwane.org/geraint-smith1.html.
