Isla, Isla, Isla



Sometimes it takes us a while, but we've finally made it to Isla Mujeres on the Yucatan coast after visiting  some keys along the way, a delightful (that's sarcasm) passage across the Yucatan current and a few days of being dazed and confused illegal immigrants. That's right. We were in Mexico illegally, and no one seemed to care. Que ironico, no?

Now, however, things have changed. We made it through the stacks of paperwork, the various stamping in triplicate, the three different offices we had to visit along with two trips to the bank, and an aduana (customs) visit onboard Bettie. (In case you're interested, no one asked about the hedgehog).

We are officially back from outer space - complete with beer and tacos.

    1. It wasn't that bad. Just the Yucatan current being not so nice. Oh, I was signed up to get your blog via email, but it stopped sending a while ago. Just took another peek, and wow! It looks great, and your photos are incredible.

    1. If it's not the wind it's the current, but really it's all just the Gulf of Mexico. Not a ton of fun. But the tacos are delicious!
