|Our fridge for the next four weeks|

A quick post in pictures:
Buddy is back to his usually toy destroying self. We can't keep up with his puppy teeth and most toys don't last more than a few weeks. On the upside as long as we keep him in toys he does not destroy anything of ours - tough to get through to dogs. He has never chewed on our shoes or anything else. His latest trick is quietly walking into the office, lifting a piece of paper from the trash and quietly chewing it to bits until we find him and it. Really not that destructive in the big picture but we watch our trash cans around him.

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.

|Fisherman coming in from bailing - another fisherman is inside the blue boat bailing water|
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.
