While the official hurricane season started way back in May, September and October tend to be the months we really see the activity start to increase. Up to this point things have been mostly quiet this season in our part of the world, with hardly a trace of 'tropical weather.' Hopefully it will stay that … Continue reading Hurricane Season….Ready or Not?
Living in a beautiful tropical location certainly has its benefits, one of them is the feeling that you're always on vacation. While that is certainly a nice perk, the reality is, it's not easy to always be on vacation. There are still the day to day things you need to take care of such as … Continue reading Taking a Vacation from Vacation
If you are at all familiar with the Riviera Maya area of Mexico, you know that it is known for its sugary white sand beaches and beautiful azul waters. It was one of the big draws and deciding factors for us as we were deciding on where we would call 'home' in retirement. Unfortunately for … Continue reading Beach BUMMER!

It will always be an easy day for us to remember since it's Randi's birthday too . . . Happy Birthday My Love!!! We are often asked if … Continue reading One Year Down, A Lifetime To Go!
La Buena Vida....translated it means "The Good Life!" It's easy to understand how the owners came up with the name for this restaurant on Half Moon Bay in Akumal (read all about it on the back of their menu). Walk up the stairs to the entrance and your toes are in the sand as you … Continue reading La Buena Vida– Restaurant Review
From the beginning I always wanted the blog to be fun and about sharing our experiences with others. My thought was that it would be a great way for friends and family to keep up with us, and for others who discovered the blog to learn about life in Mexico from our perspective. While the … Continue reading Blogging on a Full Stomach!
Truth be told, neither my wife nor I have spent any time in Kansas. Guessing that most of you will get the reference however, especially as you read the article. When we first started making plans to move to a warm tropical location, the last thing we wanted was for it to remind us of … Continue reading We’re Not in Kansas Anymore!
No, this isn't a post about our latest road trip...although I hope to be able to share some of those soon! Instead this is about how we got by without our car for the past several weeks while it was being repaired (see "A Bump In The Road") Knowing that the repairs to our car … Continue reading On The Road Again!
