Cozumel Adventure


At 0-dark-30 this is how we got two bikes, four people and six bags to the airport to catch three planes, a tram, a bus and a taxi . . .


And finally this all led to . . . Bienvenido a Cozumel!


An island with crystal clear water,


beautiful, puffy white clouds,


and large lizards! (Or Iguanas if you prefer).


My Dad and I decided to do a few intervals on the bike course.


This was the head-wind-and-not-as-scenic section of the course...


Scenery on the right of the road.


And the left.


A road-side stand selling island-ish stuff. 
And fun hammocks!


Cedric likes it here so far.

I do too - I just wrote this while lounging by a pool. Sipping some coconut and pineapple drink...

Ahhh...the island life! I want one of those hammocks!! :) Thanks for the pictures. Makes it easier to dream of a nice warm place while I'm riding my trainer tomorrow morning. :)

Look at those high Cirrus clouds. Or whatever they are! We are getting snowed on now so this lifted my sprits!
Have a fun weekend and happy thanksgiving!

Remember a few things...

1) Cozumel is the island of fertility to the Mayans (not sure if they are still running around... you might check the
entry list....)

2) We did conceive our second child on Cozumel by burying a doll in the sand at the beach.

3) Cedric may not qualify as a doll....

4) It is no fair starting 15 minutes ahead of Dad....

5) HAVE FUN!!!

What a fun time you're having and I bet you can't wait to race!! Wish your dad well from us and have a GREAT Thanksgiving!!

I want to be there! It snowed here in NJ today. Cripes.

Btw, I'm always impressed with your ability to take great self-portrait pics on the bike. I'd fall, or get a dozen pics of the corner of my head or the tip of my nose before I got one that worked.

Good Luck! Have fun!
