Akumal Beach 2014

Swimming with the Turtles, Akumal Beach, Mexico

A gorgeous morning, a beach, flippers… what more could a girl ask for?! Certainly my husband was all about the turtles. He has a running joke that we did not go to Mexico to get married (but we did), but we went to Mexico so we could swim with turtles. As soon as he found out this was a possibility in during our trip planning, he became obsessed. Obsessed. No joke. So of course when there we had to find a way. We went on an all day excursion the afternoon was filled with touring the ancient city of Tulum. The bus ride from our resort was short. It was the first time my husband and I had been on a trip outside Canada together, and seeing Mexico in the daylight was an awaking. The beach was beautiful, we did get to actually swim with turtles as they were in the area, as well as other fish life. Tip for the ladies, do not where a string bikini, I believe there are a fair number …

King Carls Castle, Cortez Island

My aunt Susan took both my sister and I on separate trips to wherever we wanted to go. My sister chose surfing in Tofino and I chose exploring Cortez Island, where we found King Carl’s Castle. It is a homemade castle and very realistic to its period. It has a kitchen and bathrooms. Many, many bedrooms. People apparently could rent it for weddings and parties. Definitely interesting and you can tell the creator had some fun with it.
