Stormy Seas

We made a quick trip over to Cancun last Friday. To stock up on a few things we needed for our doomed vacation. It was bright, sunny and hot over there. As usual.

About halfway back across to the island, I could see that there was some kind of storm going on over the island. Did not look good at all.





As we got closer, I spotted this sailboat. It was sailing in the only patch of sunlight to be seen. It was really weird and almost other worldly.







By the way, I did not see any begging iguanas at all at the customer waiting area of the Ultramar ferry. Maybe they knew a storm was coming and had all taken shelter.

You should try to get a security camera. Sam's or Walmart usually sell them. They are really cheap these days. You can take the pictures to the police who should be able to identify the thief on such a small island. At the very least get a sign that discloses security camera protected.

I've got an addendum to my post on the last entry, this one aimed at the SOBs that read your blog, Wayne; the ones that think ripping you off is "Good For Isla".

Have you idiots any idea what you're doing? Wayne is responsible for an untold amount of tourist dollars flowing into your little coral island. I personally have spent at least $10,000 over the past 8-9 years. Multiply that by the numbers of other people Wayne has entranced with his (sometimes undeserved) accolades of Isla.

YOU IDIOTS ARE KILLING THE GOLDEN GOOSE!!!

Whatever issues you may have, have been spawned by concerns that Wayne, as an American (one with $$$$, as many of us are, and are eager to spend) has with situations that may, indeed, LESSEN the loot that you guys collect.....!!!

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER ......!!!!!

START USING YOUR HEADS ....!!!

You should be erecting a statue to Wayne, not encouraging your thugs to aggravate him. What's your goal ... for all those who bring people to Isla to leave..???

Keep it up; you'll do just that. The Caribbean is a big place, filled with people who WANT tourism.

O Robert (BTW; I may not be back, thanks to you turkeys)

P.S. We love ya, Wayne.

I saw cameras at Sam's yesterday while killing four hours waiting for ear molds.

Sorry about your vacation....can you find another place to go? That picture is really amazing, maybe that is a sign to you not to give up, no matter how f-up those idiots are who steal from you.
