Even though we relocated to Florida, I'm still hating this winter cold πŸ’ and missing this enchanting Mexican retreat in Playa del Carmen. What I wouldn't give to be lounging in a rooftop hammock with a blended margarita in my hand 🍹

If any of you plan on staying in Playa del Carmen, I highly recommend you check out the Hacienda Real del Caribe in Playa. I have stayed at two all inclusives in Cancun and in Playa del Carmen and neither compare to the experiences I had here. The staff will truly do anything they can to make your life easier! TomΓ‘s and Miguel, one year later and I still miss you guys! We will be back when the kids turn 18 and I cannot wait.

One thing I have realized about fisherman is that about 50% are the kindest most generous people you've ever met, yet the other 50% are the rudest most inconsiderate pieces of garbage this world has to offer.

I have a 14' Rogue River canoe with a very basic, very cheap trolling motor. This is pretty obvious from a far distance. Yet there are SOME PEOPLE who think they have to zoom passed me on their big ole boats with huge outboard motors so they can get in before dark.

If you've ever been in a kayak, canoe or small watercraft you know how dangerous it is for you to take on wake suddenly from a much larger watercraft than you are in, and in some cases, can flip or sink your much smaller craft, ruining all of your belongings and probably your day.
.
.
.
Anyone operating any watercraft needs to understand boating safety and what is necessary and what can cause an enormous problem for your fellow fisherman and boaters alike. Respect those around you, please. If you don't show a canoe respect, are you respecting the no wake zones for manatees? Or is your deadline more important to you? There are other lives than your own and don't expect others to respect you if you don't respect them.
