I was born and raised in Ohio. Vacations were spent camping throughout the U.S., and so began my love of travel, seeing new places and meeting people. I didn't learn to dive until very late in life and, when I went on my first dive vacation to Utila, Honduras, I found my passion in life.

I was fortunate to get to know two people at my local dive shop in Port Clinton, Ohio who supported and encouraged my interest in diving as I worked my way up to becoming a scuba instructor. During that time I met Patrick, the love of my life, who shares my love of travel and desire to live in Mexico. Patrick doesn't dive but is always there to help carry my gear. He refers to himself as my "tank-totin' cabana boy."

Now that I am retired, we spend six months in Mahahual, Mexico and the summers in Ohio teaching diving. In the coming months I hope to share with you what it is like to live in Mahahual and some of the great people who have become great friends.
