Yucking it up in the Yucatan - January - February 2014

On January 15th, we flew to Cozumel near Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.  Bill went diving several days before we moved over to Playa del Carmen.  We had a condo a ways from town in the gringo golf area of Playcar.  Fortunately, bikes were provided and we went to the lively town and beach most days.

 We stayed in Tulum for a few days.  The ruins are wonderful, though thronged with tourists from all over the world  Although the beach and nature reserve were nice, staying in town was noisy and unpleasant, so we cut short that part of our trip. 
Puerto Morelos

We were able to find some good accommodations in Puerto Morelos and spent the rest of our time there.

On Feb 26th, we flew back to Seattle again.

We left Jarana in her slip at Shilshole and flew to New England to see Mystic, Newport and Boston.

 From late September into December we toured Croatia, northern Italy, south of France and a bit of Spain. A few posts from those trips are on Facebook.

Dubrovnik Crowds

La Serenissima
In early December We returned to Seattle and rented a small apartment north of Ballard over the holidays.  It was good to be home, but we'd been gone so much it was hard to find our way around.
