It’s better than SNOW but not ideal beach weather! El Norte means “the north.” You guessed it … Mother Nature whips in strong winds from the North across the Gulf of Mexico, pushes waves in against the shore and whips the sea’s bottom into a frenzy of frothing sand. It is not the best day for my morning beach walk. It’s a gray day but 69 degrees at 9 am. There’s not a drop of rain and better yet …. no snow!
Here’s a YouTube video from a few years ago that shows you what I’m looking at right now from our dining room table. Yes, so much better than snow!
We will be spending the next seven weeks here at the beach between Progreso and Chicxulub, Yucatan, Mexico. This is our fifth year and the fifth winter of my husband’s retirement. Seems he detests Ohio winters! Isn’t he lucky that his wife (me) is a former Spanish teacher. Spanish – Maya language is universal here with shop owners and school children speaking a bit of English. But, the caretakers here at our home-away-from-home do speak very little English. So, I find myself expanding my school-book Spanish when I need to explain a plumbing issue or if I need to learn the best place to buy fresh grouper and what to ask for.
Follow our adventures during the next seven weeks while there’s no shipping from the celebrate365.com web site. You can still order … but I won’t be shipping until mid-March!
