After an interminable year, mi esposa and I are heading back to AC in a little over three weeks for our second visit, a longer one this time. We're bringing along a friend of mine from Iowa who has never been out of the USA and will be travelling on a virgin passport. I've been e-mailing him pictures from our trip last year and from the website and I think he's already packed to leave. I cannot tell you all how much this message board has meant to me this year as I have tried to fight the urge to chuck it all and head south.

A few things I'm really looking forward to:

Sunrises, the hammocks in front of Coral Bay Villas, fresh papaya for breakfast, snorkeling with Geraldo on El Gato and a beach BBQ at Mexico Rocks, Rick and Elva at Crazy Canuck's, Margi at Coconuts, mojitos at the Tackle Box, sushi at the Blue Water Grill, Belikins and more Belikins

Detect a theme here? Look for my butt on a stool at BC's on Sunday, November 12th. Counting the hours in Kansas City . . . .

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.
