Next trip I will . . .


We missed our trip in November due to the bike debacle, so I've had time to think about the opportunities I waste when I'm in Paradise.  As the sign says, Imagine, Dream, Believe -- and build that to do list. 


Next trip I will . . . 

Strap on the gear and snorkel at Garrafon.   I've been like Goldilocks with water temps over the years in the tropics.  If the water's not just right, I make excuses for not taking the plunge.  Wonder if the same little old man is still selling tickets? 


Spend an afternoon on the back porch at El Varadero drinking Mojitos and watching the boats pass.  And don't forget the guacamole and chips!


Stick my head through the Poc Chuc menu board and once again get my photo taken.  In fact, Craig and I need to pose for photos multiple times.  He's afraid when I'm gone, there will be no photos because I hate having my picture taken!


Savor every sunset!



Snorkel under the bridge at Avalon Cove.  Yes, I know fish aren't as plentiful there, but kids were chasing mantas on one of our last trips. 


Swim or water walk in the water off Playa Norte everyday!  No excuses!


Hunt through the cemetery and find Mundaca's grave.  Geez Louise!  How long have I been traveling to Isla?

Add a visit to the bead ladies shop to buy some earrings, a tour of the turtle farm, dinner at Limon, and what the heck -- maybe a trip down the zipline at Garrafon to that list!  Hmmmmm.

Build that list!
