This is the last of my 2021 tribute to our beloved Isla de Cozumel. There will be more, as we travel and dive there again, which we all know will happen, just not soon enough. But for now, I say adios to Cozumel. !Te amo mucho!
Local art is prominently featured all over the island, and the airport was no exception. It is so colorful and beautiful and leaves a lasting impression, whether greeting you as you fly in or inviting you back again as you leave.
Of course we saw lots and lots of beautiful fish of all sizes and all colors.
We saw turtles, though not nearly as many as we usually do. Although, on one of our last dives, we did see one HUGE lagerhead turtle.
We saw two very tiny little black seahorses, something we don’t usually see in Cozumel.
No raccoons this time, other than the big statue of one eating a piece of watermelon down at Punta Sur.
Cozumel is my happy place, and is always a little bit like Heaven to me.
Love was both in the air and on the walls.
We flew home on 9/12, the day after 9/11. When we arrived back in Denver, there was a loving tribute to the men and women and heroes we lost on that tragic day 20 years ago. One of the pilots lost during those vicious attacks was from Denver.
Live life to the fullest, with no regrets. Tomorrow is never promised. Take it all in and always do your best to make the most of what you have been given. Appreciate all the gifts in life and make your life as colorful and as beautiful as you can.
