This past January, after traveling for work, the holidays, and photography conventions for 6 weeks solid, I took a trip for myself! It was the Lehman’s Women Trip. It was made up of my mom-in-law, my husband’s cousin, and his four aunts. No men, no phones, no computers!! Can you believe that, I actually detached my computer from my hip!! All we did was sit on the beach, read, eat guacamole, drink margaritas, eat more guacamole, drink wine, and more beach!!
This trip was so valuable to me. After three weeks of photography classes and conventions. I was able to read through my notes and a book from the different speakers. It was the first time that I actually had had a break to take in and process what I learned.
This is Rose’s (Caleb’s Aunt) palapa on the beach in Mexico. We slept upstairs, where there are two beds covered by mosquito netting! There is a bathroom, kitchen, and living/eating area downstairs. On the inside, there is a bedroom, living room and restroom! You would never guess it was that big by looking at it from the outside.
This is the view from her palapa! Wow!!
We walked three miles every morning. It’s amazing what you do without tv, phones, or computers!
While we were there, there was a ring around the full moon…I forget what that’s called.
Downtown, Playa del Carmen, was about an hour north of where we were.
You can’t get away from America!!
The beaches there are covered in washed up trash and random things like this.
Cozumel is an island off the coast of Playa del Carmen. The trash that they dump into the ocean washes, onto these beautiful beaches. I grew up on the beach and this makes you think about what happens to the trash that is dumped in the oceans or from boats. It’s sad that this is allowed in any country!
Our last day…I miss it already.
