We drove down a long road not a person did we see.
We walked down a trail only knowing that the beach was certainly there.
We heard the waves, a few birds, and the palms blowing in the breeze.
Add a few clouds for the sake of definition.
And a million, and I mean a million shades of sparkling blue.
Even French Husband's shirt matched the color of the sea.
I closed my eyes, opened them again, laughed out loud,
Then I hugged French Husband, and kicked off my sandals.
When I turned around, French Husband had taken off far more than his shoes....
He looked at me and said, "What? Do you see anyone around?"
A "FOR SALE" sign on a palm tree did not blink an eye.
"Sian Kaán in Mayan means "Where the sky is born". Enter a world unknown to all but the 1000 plant, 330 bird and 103 mammal species who reside in Sian Kaán Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. This 5280 square kilometer natural park can be accessed from Mahaual in the south or Tulum in the north. It is bordered by the Caribbean sea and the world´s second longest continuous coral reef (110 kms). Filled with Caribbean bays and lakes of various salinity levels, the Sian Kaán Bioreserve is the birthplace for most of the Atlantic ocean´s fish population."
