Cenote Diving in Mexico

I’m back offshore now after having such an incredible vacation in Mexico and Seattle. It was a whirlwind of non-stop activity and adventure with the most wonderful guy. Pretty much the perfect string of dates :). We rendezvoused at the luggage carousel in Cancun … Continue reading
