Life in the Bays of Huatulco

Here are some random photographs of our recent days in Huatulco. In Puerto Angel where we were protected from the rough seas, Maya, Tim and Kai had fun converting our dinghy into a swim platform.

Have you ever seen one of these animals? This was our first time. Usually it lives in the mountains, but this man who resides next to the Port Captain decided to keep it as a pet.

First person to guess the above animal gets to eat what Tim is sampling. Hint it's full of protein:

I know, I know!!! It's a kotamundi!!

Sail carefully, MMM

Well you didn't spell it right, but it is a coatimundi or coati. Also known as a tejon in spanish.

NORTH, not South, DAKOTA, that is. It looks like Kai is waiting in line to finish up anything you might leave behind. I hope it keeps you both healthy, ugly though it is.

Looking Back

It took me more than seven years to turn our blog into a hard covered bound book. At first, I was leery of wrapping up our adventure because...
