Sailing The Laguna

21 Aug

Living in the southernmost part of Mexico does not lend itself to many visitors. The little village of Bacalar where we live is a five-hour bus ride south of Cancun, nestled along the coast of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Add to that the fear of Mexico that is actively promoted and it is no wonder why people choose to vacation in Costa Rica, the Bahamas or a cruise to anywhere.

This past week, our friend Karen who lives in Tulum, jumped on a bus to escape the deep jungle heat where monkeys fly through the trees, to hang out with Dos Tortas and enjoy lake breezes.


As always, having a guest is a good excuse to do something we’ve been putting off for forever…like going for a sail with our neighbors Teresa and Paul.

It was the first time my MIL had ever sailed and she had a blast on our three-hour tour.

It’s been on and off raining and threatening to rain. The weather cooperated to give us enough wind and not too much sun. A fabulous time was had by all.

      It’s good to know people. I’d like a little sail boat eventually. Take advantage of the wind. Good to hear from you Bruce. Seems you and Mary do ok in the fun department. 😀

    What a wonderful visit I had with you, Lisa and Alice. The boat trip just capped it off perfectly, the wind and the sail are the best way to do it. As for rain, it can make a pleasant swim even better, though I am not sure that Luna agreed! Love you all.

      We continue to have overcast skies and daily rumblings. Glad you enjoyed yourself. Anytime.

    So glad you got to go sailing!!! It is such a natural experience…..wind – you sail, no wind – just the stillness. Loved seeing y’all in the little video. So look forward to your blog every Sunday!!
