As 2016 is winding down, it seems like a fitting time to have one of those “take a look back” posts.
By the way, if you clicked on this one looking for some insightful tips about moving to Mexico, you’re going to be disappointed. But don’t worry — there are several of those planned for January.

A Year in Pictures
Instead of boring everyone with stories about how awesome our year was — I decided to bore people with pictures instead. At least it’s more entertaining to scroll quickly through pictures as opposed to text.
Like most new arrivals, we tried our hand at creating amateur Corona ads.
Once you get the beer bottle out of the way, you can’t help but be amazed by the beauty of Mexico.
The photo below was taken with a cellphone and it was not enhanced. That is the water inside Caleta Tankah near Tulum.
The best part of waking up is eating breakfast next to the bay in Akumal.
This is John (below). He is just one of almost a dozen visitors that we had from the “old country”. We took people to the Mayan ruins in Tulum three times in less than a month.
Prior to moving to Mexico, I rarely ever took a “selfie” but I started doing it Mexico to prove I wasn’t getting all of these amazing pics off the Internet.
Here is the same place without me in the picture. It looks too good to be taken by a guy with a cheap cellphone in one hand and a beer in the other. That’s why I started taking selfies — for proof.
This part of Mexico has a lot more to offer than just amazing beaches, it also has cenotes.
We shouldn’t forget the importance of naps. Fortunately there always seems to be a hammock nearby for a midday siesta.
We certainly can’t overlook the food. We thought we were going to lose weight when we moved to Mexico — but the food has been too amazing!
The hamburger at La Lunita is one of my favorites.
And of course fresh grilled lobster and crispy fries at the National Beach Club in Mahahual was phenomenal!
We witnessed a lot of turtles hatching while living down here. During the height of the season, it was almost daily.
Sunset is my favorite time of day here. I never get tired of ending my days on the beach watching the palm trees turn black against the sky.
Let’s Wrap This Up
I could keep posting pictures but I wouldn’t want anyone to get a blister on their thumb from too much scrolling.
This is (probably) our last post for 2016. We have some exciting things planned for next year and we’ll begin posting again on January 1st, 2017.
Linda and I want to thank everyone who takes time out of their busy day to read our little blog. Happy holidays and Happy New Year!
