Double Vision

 

Double Hibiscus 

Ruffled like a pretty dress

Closed at end of day

And that is my haiku poem for the day!

I Wonder If They Are Hiring?

On a recent vacation to Playa de carmen, Mexico, we spent a day at the natural aquarium Xel-ha’.   Xel-ha’ was named by the ancient Maya and translates to “where the water is born”  This stunning tropical world offered a day of snorkeling, beaches, great food, drinks and warm sunshine.

I wandered around the nursery that is home to an amazing variety of native plants; more then 270 species.  The plants are raised to maintain the conservation of the reserve, as well as ensure the safety of many endangered species of plants.

I could have put on garden gloves and some garden shoes  and stayed all day!

Behind The Scenes

I recently visited Xel Ha, a natural ecological aquarium and tropical lagoon.

Located on the Caribbean Coast of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Xel Ha means ‘birthplace of water’ and we snorkeled and  explored cenotes, caves, and lagoons fed by the ocean.

The day and experience left us in tired and in awe of the sights and beauty of this part of our world.

The end of the day finished with a stop at the plant nursery that supports their mission as an ecological park.

I look forward to sharing more of this special place that included an Apiary that houses melipona Bees, that are stingless.
