Q is for the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico

On our way from Cancun to Isla Mujeres, in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

I'm glad I didn't go to Tulum. Too many stairs, and I was very tired that day.

Dick making friends with the local iguanas in Tulum.

Who, me? You're waiting for me? I'm slower than Kay!

At Puerto Morelos, the water changed color constantly as the clouds moved.

No, this isn't Dick windsurfing, but I bet he could.

So glad to see we were staying at a resort with crocodiles. Ha, just baby ones!

I watched this bird for a long time, but I don't know what kind it is.

Wow nice take on the letter Q. The beach in Mexico looks exquisite, and the weather is a far cry from what we're headed for here up North!
& that deer from your Tuesday post sure looks big too - nice catch for being taken by surprise.

Back in the 80s we flew our Piper Arrow to Cancun from Los Angeles. It was a fabulous trip with lots of things to see and experience. I remember flying over the jungles and seeing pyramids hidden in their depths. We landed at Chitzen Itza and did the tour. An amazing place, but I passed on climbing to the top. I can fly a plane, but I am afraid of heights. Go figure. - Margy

That looks like a lovely place to vacation. Your post reminded me of a story my dad used to tell. He said when he was a baby in Florida his parents kept an aligator in the bath tub and that was why he didn't like water.
Glad you joined us on the soap box, feel free to step up anytime.

Catching up -- had misssed this and your last three posts. Wonderful each one! I never know what adventure you will share with us -- and I love that! This one looks like a great trip -- those stairs down to the beach are fabulous.

Your yellow mosaic is bright and cheerful and just what I need these days.

You live in a lovely world anyway -- and the deer what a nice added touch.

Looks like a wonderful place. Great sequence of shots.

Great choice for the letter Q! I ended my one month journey through Mexico just south of Tulum, next to the amazing and unique Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve.

Beautiful colour that sea though...

Mara said...

Yes, but baby crocodiles do grow up! I wouldn't want to be near then.

That staircase looks like a right killer to me! I wouldn't like to climb those either.

Sylvia K said...

Looks like such a great place and definitely a perfect one for the Q Day! I do love Mexico and loved the year that I lived there! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Tulum does have far too many stairs but its the only way to see some of the sights. Great photos. Not sure about the crocs. though.

EG Wow said...

Looks like a paradise!

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Roger -- Really? My parents spent some 25 winters in a little shrimp-fishing village (now a tourist town) in Baja Norte. I visited them as often as I could, being a dutiful daughter and wishing also to escape winter in Canada. I love Baja.

Great photos of a wonderful looking spot, Kay. We have not been travellers, and I enjoy these pics of exotic places so much.

Mom vs. the boys said...

what a wonderful place with cute baby alligators! that bird almost looks like a kookaburra! lol

Wanda said...

Those stairs look really scary. Hang on to that rail.


Lovely shots...Nice Q post.

Ebie said...

Hi Kay, I do not know if I can handle the stairs, but the waters look so inviting! Your are my tour guide of your travels!

Tumblewords: said...

Paradise, for sure! Beautiful photos...

Paula Scott said...

How fun is that that you got to go to a place where you could use as the post for 'q' for the ABC meme!
Did you pet the baby crocodile?

indicaspecies said...

Isla Mujeres looks like a lovely place to be, with the blue waters and the beach. Thank you for your interesting comment at my waterfalls post, and have a good day Kay.

Barbara said...

Stunning shots of a beautiful place - don't think I'd have fancied tackling the stairs (at least on the way up!).

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Paula -- pet the baby crocodile? not this chicken. anyway, they had a sign: No molestar los crocodilos.

Reader Wil said...

Thank you for the virtual tour along the beach on a warm and sunny day, while here in my country the wind is blowing and the weather forecast was not very promising either. Tomorrow we will expect a gale and buckets of rain!!

Cezar and Léia said...

It looks like a very good place to be right about now. And that's no crock!

Francisca said...

Two iguanas and totally fearless they are! What a capture! Dick just chatting away with them. And that blue... I want to DIVE IN NOW! Quinana Roo... good Q post!

[On mine, I answered you: I'm not sure what you found, but no, the only Ganzhou I know is what I call a "county" - but the Chinese call city (prefecture level) - in the southwest Jiangxi province close to the coast. Look up Lanzhou (the capital), Gansu, to find it on the map. It's on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau. There are no alternate spellings for Chinese in Pinyin, which is all I use. :-) ]

Beverley Baird said...

These are gorgeous photos Kay - what a wonderful place to visit! Love the animal shots!

Was really struck by the unseatharper.ca! That's new - but about time! I will have to check it out! I have been saying that since before he got in the first time!
Take care.
