Around Town, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Bright sunlight slants in low to start the day.

A gull wheels overhead, perfectly vertigull, at the north exit from the Puerto Aventuras marina.

Look at the top of the mast........

..... 25 meters up a man is doing some maintenance work. Better here than on a rolling sea.

A dive boat prepares to head out to the reef.

This is a point and shooter's version of a fisheye lens.

A gated entrance to a villa.

Bicycles waiting for their riders.

A local version at taking a bike ride.

A paddle boarder heads in to beat the storm.

And after the brief storm, paradise is back to normal.


  1. Joe - we enjoy reading your blog! Good job with the photos and comments. I guess that storm yesterday was one of the "nortes" mentioned in the Wiki article on the Yucatan? "Strong storms called nortes can quickly descend on the Yucatán Peninsula any time of year. Although these storms pummel the area with heavy rains and high winds, they tend to be short-lived, clearing after about an hour"

    Pretty strong burst of wind yesterday evening!

    1. Gordon, Glad you enjoy the blog, thanks for your comment. I don't know what it was since my ability to obtain detailed focused real time weather information here is challenged. They seem to move in from the east but that might just be the low level surface condition. I miss the constantly updated weather info available in the US. This year, unlike last year, it has showered hard every day for the past 5 days - heavy intense tropical monsoon type. Some preceded by a gust front, some just begin with a light trickle and intensify quickly falling straight down. I'd rather have sun but, these downpours are pretty cool, too.
