Ruined forever

The Mayan ruins at Tulum were among the most incredible things I have ever seen in my life and I've been very fortunate to see some incredible sites from the castles of Germany to the pyramid outside Mexico City.


We enjoyed a wonderful view of the gorgeous blue water along the beach at Tulum. We saw the beautiful foliage and the really cool iguanas every where.




















We also saw the poster boy for "what not to wear" at the beach. Baldy here was modeling the latest in speedo swimsuits in floral print. Dude, little tip, uh, don't do it. Then, we have my homage to SpongeBob ... I named this gal "Sandy Cheeks." If you watch SpongeBob, you just laughed. If not, it is the name of one of the characters. Trust me, it's funny.










Then, there is me doing my best to attract Kenny Chesney, since he likes lounging on the beach in his wife beater and straw hat. Alas, all I got was man-handled by the Mexican merchants.

LaLa thought she'd get out in the water to get a better picture. What she REALLY got was an ass full of sand and whatever water-bound bacteria was floating in the waters. A big tide came up and she was wet almost up to her boobs.
But, the waters and the beach were gorgeous. No one told us that we'd be able to get to the water or we would have worn our swimsuits under our clothes and jumped it. It was a gorgeous 88 degrees in Tulum.
This was our tour guide, Manuel. He had gorgeous blue eyes. He nicknamed the two of us "Texas" because of our hats and our accents. I have no idea how he could tell ahm from Texas.
This was the view as we were exiting the ruins. Incredible.

Me and one of my iguana friends at the ruins.

More incredible sites.














The skies were so pretty, too. Manuel said winter in the Yucatan is in the 80s. In the summer, it is 115. I'm glad we went in March. I have to get back. The Yucatan peninsula was so incredibly beautiful. I highly recommend making the trip.

    Cozumel was one of the stops on our honeymoon (9 years ago in August!) and it was so hot and humid, we did not take the trip to the Mayan Ruins. Seeing these photos, I now deeply regret it!

    Great shots, it was like deja-vu since we were just there in February. The colors, between sky and ocean, are just beautiful, aren't they? Amusingly, I wasn't even searching for Tulum when I came across these, so it was a pleasant suprise!

    Was there in Feb. 06 and it was incredible. The day looked almost identical to the one you experienced. I wish I knew you were going and I would've told you about the beach. I didn't know about it when I went either. I've sinced watched some documentaries on the Myan culture and empire and it's amazing. Glad you enjoyed it!
