And, so you wanna know where I'm gonna move the boat?
Well, there's a little island off the coast of Mexico (on the Carib side) called Isla Mujeres--it is by far one of my fave places in the world. I produce pilates/volunteer retreats there; I escape there when I feel like I can't take another day; I daydream about it all the livelong day.
And, so now I must move the boat there. Why wouldn't I? It's a quick flight from Cancun to LA. The beer is the coldest ever. I can scuba and snorkel to my hearts content. I have happy families that I've adopted there. I can sail all over the Carib. if I want to, including a straight shot down the East Coast of Central America. I eat the best tostados, sopes, and pozole I've ever had in my life there. I learned to make homemade ceviche there...and dream about it to this day. I love exploring the little 5 mile x 1/2 mile patch of earth--and trust me, there is ALWAYS something to discover. My hair looks absolutely fantastic in the humidity. The mainland is a 20 minute ferry ride. The slip fees aren't that outlandish. I love watching the peeps who live on and visit the island cruise around on bikes, free as a bird. I love swapping out books at Manana. I love living in not much more than a bikini. I love organizing free-for-all pilates classes for the locals. I love drinking beer on ice---at 9 am. I love even more a 8 am strawberry daiquiri. I love sweating like mad and then just stripping down to the said bikini and diving into crazy blue water.
