Fireworks Independence Day long exposure dog glow collar

I spent most of the fourth getting the master bathroom ready for cement board. The cuts all worked out pretty well but when I went to the hardware store for roofing felt I came back with more projects. Bulbs for the cable lights, a concrete pier for the deck, chlorine granules for the pool, and rock for the planters. I wound down the afternoon weeding, painting, and rocking the planters.

That left just enough time to meet the comrades for fireworks.

Cenote dive Cancun Mexico cave

This is all on the heels of five days in Playa Del Carmen for Ryan and Ashlee's wedding. Jon, Ty, and I managed to sneak in a cenote dive with the local shop.

Cave diving is pretty unlike open water due to the darkness, close quarters, oh and a crazy thing called the halocline which actually photographs okay. But it's not to be missed.

Notes on the Yucatan - Matt Lakeman

I spent eight days in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, primarily in and around the cities of Cancun, Valladolid, and Merida. Honestly, it wasn't a great trip. My sense is that most of the interesting sites are designed for Spring Breakers to take single-day cultural excursions so they can feel like they did something besides...

Mexico | ST

I just returned from a joyful, thrilling and intesive trip to Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. The Yucatan peninsula in Mexico is a paradise, with its pristine beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, and vibrant culture. We visited a variety of destinations including Cancun, Holbox Island, Chichen Itza, Valladolid, Tulum, Cozumel, and Playa Del Carmen. A few people reached out to me for the itinerary so I thought I'll write it up here.
