"Away" is a place not found on a map, but you'll know you're there when you get there. And then it happens. One day you wake up and you're in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm, your soul is light, your thoughts are positive and your vision is clear. Your faith is stronger than ever and you're at peace. At peace with where you've been and with what you've been through and at peace with where you are headed. A place called away.
The real reason we are here in Mexico is to witness the wedding of Kara Plewes and Kyle Grier at a ceremony on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico. The day was sunny and warm as is normal for this part of the world. The vivid blue skys and puffy white clouds are normal for this part of paradise.
Something I have noticed in my travels is that every beautiful area of the country comes with something that will hurt you. It is either prickly, or stings, or will plain eat you such as this crocodile just down from our room. He sat quietly sunning himself for quite a while.
The wedding was beautiful and I won't post pictures because Kara would want to make sure everyone sees hers first. I did however get a picture of the two of them on the beach.
The set up for the reception on the beach was gorgeous.
We were honoured to sit a table with the Plewes family and share the occasion with our angel Barb.

The reception was a nice meal on the beach and then the bride and groom danced in the sand all night long.
Instead of a view from our window here is a picture of our bed all made up fancy.
