This week I decided to do something a bit different and participate in Budget Travelers Sandbox's Travel Photo Thursday. I've long wanted to share some photos I took of the fun sea creatures I encountered while strolling along Rafael E. Melgar, a.k.a. Cozumel's tourist area main street. This seems like
Guess what season it is? Still Winter, technically. Ha! Did I getcha?
Seriously though, I can tell Spring is drawing near. Lately I'm seeing more and more horror and paranormal events being advertised, something that's sort of dead in Winter (pun intended).
Here's the ones I've seen so far. If they had
After exploring Ensenada's tourist section, we decided to take a little waterfront path back to our boat. Almost immediately I spied something intriguing. It was a towering thing that most definitely appeared to be made up at least partially of bones.
As we approached, I fired up my camera and shot

A while back I saw a post on Phantoms & Monsters about a chupacabra-like creature attacking Siberian livestock. It made me do a forehead slap.
"Doh! What was I thinking only looking for haunted Mayan ruins when we were in Mexico? We could've been in prime Chupacabra territory!"
I looked for ghosts when
One of the places we went to in search of haunted Mayan ruins was Chacchoben, "the place of the red corn." We didn't find any ghosts there, nor did our guide share any ghost stories with us (in fact, he thought I was nuts for asking him if he knew of
On our visit to Mexico we had the chance to scope out some Mayan ruins. We ended up taking a tour to Chacchoben, "the place of red corn."
I've been thinking a lot about it lately. Mostly because of the chatter I'm coming across on the Internet about the disaster in
Before we left for our Western Caribbean cruise I knew I wanted to get a digital waterproof camera. I learned on our other Caribbean cruise (that time to Key West and the Bahamas) that it was a pain to get film developed for disposable waterproof cameras.
