Running in Mexico

This running clip from our visit to Mexico shows well how beautiful that part of the Mayan Coast is and more specifically out Hotel Esencia and the beach right in front of it. I actually did a longer run prior but did not have GoPro ready,so I went out again for a short jog to film part of the run.

Mexico 2011

Amy and I spent a few days in Mexico to relax in the sun and we had a wonderful time here. We are about 20km South of Playa de Carmen at a beautiful hotel called Esencia and everything was magnificent. We are leaving from here early tomorrow but wanted to share a few images from the trip. We'll add more images soon.

Our unit was very nice and clean.

A bit of reading time for Amy in our plunge pool

Huevas Rancheras done right

Amy's breakfast was delicious too

On the first day the skies were a bit overcast

But the beach was awesome anyway

It almost felt like a private beach

A bit of reading time by the pool

The space to relax at the beach

Oh what a view

What ever we needed was right there

As we said, very quiet and peaceful here even on super sunny days

Amy had this lobster wrap for lunch. Yummy.

I enjoyed pasta pomodoro

The unique outdoor yoga studio at Hotel Esencia

Beautiful sunset on the Mayan Coast

My wife is always stunning and here ready for dinner

Le Mans fun

2 out of 3 factory Audi race cars fell victim to terrible crashes at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans but the remaining #2 car came back to win the race. Now that is a story. I wonder if Audi makes one of these fast Turbo Diesels with enough room for Amy and I and the 2 babies.

Time to part

Yup, it is time to part with my trusted BMW MCoupe. I have loved it for almost 12 years but it gets driven less and less and soon we just will need a bigger car. The babies just would not fit in there.
