I shot so many photographs and it is so very hard for me to choose which ones to post. I wanted to share a glimpse of all the things we did. The shots I didn't take were the best times, when we were just hanging out in the condo, being together.

The weather was perfect. Mid-seventies and low humidity. It was amazing!

We did get out and do some sightseeing.

The Aquarium at La Isla

We finally made it out to Chichen Itza. It's about a two hour drive and we went through downtown Cancun. This is outside of the tourist zone. This is only a little of what we saw. Driving down the highway, we saw people who had structures (I couldn't get photos of these) they lived in built a few yards from the highway. It was rather shocking to see. Here are a few shots of downtown Cancun.

Then there is Chichen Itza. It was amazing!!!

Old time tic-tac-toe?

This is the only structure where climbing is permitted. The steps are extremely narrow, but the perfect size for Princess' feet.

The beach! We couldn't go in the water because it hurts Princess' skin (eczema), but we had fun!!

We ate out one night. Bubba Forrest, run!

Can you believe I even got some Shady Lady shots?!

Great photos! Thanks for sharing your sunny vacation with us.

The beach pics of Princess are so sweet. Looks like she had a good time even without swimming in the ocean.

How awesome! I'm sooooo jealous of your visit to Chichen Itza!!!!!! It's one of the places I HAVE TO go! How long is it from Cancun to C. Itza? I have SO got to go there! Do you need a passport to go to Cancun? As you can see I don't get out much. I've enjoyed your pics though. I shall live vicariously through you! lol. Very nice, thanks so much for sharing!!

Thanks everyone! Yes, Princess is quite the daddy's girl.

Sheila, Chichen Itza is about 2 hours from Cancun. It is well worth the drive. You do need a passport to go to Mexico. It wasn't always that way, but a lot has changed since 9/11.
