We have arrived! After a long travel day, Amie and I decided not to head off to Playa Del Carmen and decided instead to take the short boat ride to a small island off the coast of Cancun, called Isla Mujeres (island of the women).

We got our room at a hotel in the center of the small town and then headed for our first beach experience. Once my feet touched the clear blue water of the Carribean ocean I was able to finally relax into the moment. We got some sun, did some swimming and managed not to get sunburned on day one. Score one for team Potsic/Romney! We also walked through a colorful cemetery and Amie took some photos.

The weather has been great. Lots of sun and only one quick rain so far. Very warm and muggy. Day 2 (today) has been spent mostly on the beach tanning and swimming in the water that is waist deep for 100 yards. It is sublime. I think, in the morning, we will take a snorkeling trip. When we do decide to move on from this little island we will go to Playa De Carmen which is a short bus ride from Cancun. Once there we plan to stay a number of days before we continue on south, eventually into Belize.

Things are going very well and they are only going to get better!
We will check back in a few days....
