Ten months ago my husband Tom and I moved to the Yucatan Peninsula on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. We chose a house that sits on a beach overlooking a local fishing pier, where each morning we watch the fishermen catching bait in their nets before they head out to sea in their pangas (fishing boats).
My husband Tom and I have adventurous spirits. So, last March, we decided to embark on a new adventure, having lived in Puerto Rico for two years. We'd always dreamed of living in Mexico so we packed up everything, put ourselves and our dog on a plane to Miami, picked up a car there, and started driving south.
