Greek Style Temple, Segesta Sicily


Near Trapani, Sicily, this  Doric temple was not built by the Greeks;
there is no evidence they occupied this location at the time it was built in the 5th century BC. The building was never completed and is remarkably preserved as is the mystery of its origins.

Hola, Tortuga

This photo of a sea turtle swimming off a remote beach near Puerto Adventuras checking out Thatcher as intently as Thatcher is checking it out makes me smile every time I see it.  I hadn’t found time to go through our GoPro footage until last night and I was so happy to see that we captured a little of the magic.  I love that my boys and the other children we were traveling with were so eager to hop off the boat and swim with these wild turtles…. as well as some stingrays….many of whom were giant!

Salty kids….hopefully they made some memories that they won’t soon forget.
