Israel: T - 7 Days!

9AM - A backpack for Israel.
A few weeks ago, I made the decision to only carry a backpack with me on my flight to Israel. In the pack I will carry things most important. Laptop computer, Little Mavicito, rechargeable batteries and charger. Stuff like that. Clothing that I need I'll buy in Israel.

This morning I began to fill the pack. As I put stuff into the pack, my journey to Israel struck me. And for awhile, I was brought to tears!

I am soooooo happy!

3PM - Kicking back on the Mayan Riviera.
They call this coast of the Carribean the "Mayan Riviera." And I am a very lucky guy to be here. Most of the work preparing for my trip to Israel is done. Now I am down to a punch list of less than 10 items. None of them critical.

This morning there was time for snorkeling in the bay. And for making a batch of salmon patties. On MsTioga's roof, anchors for the clearance lights are being locked down with epoxy.

4PM - Back in the bay.
Does it seem as though I am living the life of a zillionaire here on the Mayan Riviera? I sure feel like a zillionaire! Rooms around here in Akumal go for $180 - $220/nite and in Playa del Carmen maybe more. Wow!

Boid and I went back to the bay. Boid stayed on a little table sitting on the white sandy beach. I went out snorkeling looking for giant turtles, manta rays and fish.
