I decided to wait until my next post to show you pictures of the Mayan archeological ruins at Coba and snorkeling with the turtles at Akumal Bay to catch you up on life. This week:
- We ended up spending an evening in emergency at the hospital. Hubby was experiencing some pain and it is often better to be safe than sorry when you reach midlife. Without getting into details everything is fine and we were out of there two hours afterwards. Our hospital is extremely old and it must be very difficult for medical professionals to work in such cramped aged surroundings. Fortunately, our new hospital is being built as we speak and is only 2 km away from our home. I have no problem paying taxes towards the new hospital as we definitely need it. Sometimes people gripe about things like that - and then they end up in ER. It was an eye-opening experience.

We are back from our travels safe and sound although we have now experienced our first Tropical Storm which actually happened to be on hubby's life list. We landed in Cancun on Friday afternoon and by the time we got to the hotel it was quite cloudy but calm. We ventured out for a fantastic first night meal of tacos and shrimp and wandered out to the beach to see fishermen trying to take those boats that could be beached out of the water and hotels tucking away all their seafront tables and chairs. The concierge at our small Mexican hotel mentioned that bad weather was coming. We weren't exactly sure what that meant as the forecast on all the weather channels indicated possible thunderstorms with a few millimetres of rain - no mention of a storm approaching. Obviously the locals are much more in tune with their own weather.

We had a lovely long weekend last weekend - managed to relax, get our yard work done, had lots of BBQd food, and even tried out our new kayaks! They are everything we hoped them to be and we had a great 1.5 hour paddle on Monday afternoon. This week we have had extremely nice warm sunny days and after an extremely tough work day of being couped-up in the house we decided to take a walk with Buddy down at the Marina area last night. I never get tired of the scenery and still absolutely love where we live.

The first incident - On Friday I went and did my regular grocery shop including purchasing 4 litres of milk for $4.59. On Sunday we discovered that the milk never made it from the trunk of my car to the fridge. Unfortunately, the garage was not cold as we had several nice days and by the time we figured out where the missing milk was - it had spoiled. Hard earned cash and milk down the drain.
