Our eldest granddaughter Maddy arrived today for a 10 day visit.    Gerry went to Cancun to pick her up for 12:35 p.m., and the two of them turtled  back into Xpu Ha at about 2:30 p.m.  

On the drive back from the airport, Gerry told Maddy all about the Camino de Santiago walk.   An 800 kilometer walk that  begins in France and ends in Spain.    The two of them are talking about taking two months and doing it  together in the summer.   They are both dead serious.  I think it is a wonderful idea, I wonder what Maddy's mom thinks of it.  

Maddy has been up since about 4:30 a.m., so she was dead tired.   We took a walk on the beach, and it was Happy Hour by the time we got back to Mrytle.   Maddy got to meet the Xpu Ha gang.   I do believe she has the traveling bug. 

In an attempt to keep herself awake long enough for dinner, Maddy started tossing her volleyball around. 

It really didn't work very well.

9:15 p.m. and she is out like a light....didn't even change out of her clothes.   :)   

We watched The Way  so Maddy could see the Camino de Santiago, and now she wants to do it even more.   It's a great movie, with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estavez,  I highly recommend it.   Gerry has wanted to do the walk since we first watched the movie.


  1. So lucky to have your Grand with you, I'll bet she has a ball with Coco, Jodie & Sandy too.I am so hoping all will go well with Donna's heart surgery and we will be down there next year.Don't forget if you get near St Louis to visit the Weeb Ranch ask Paul & Helen we have room for another RV to park.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. I hope Donna's surgery goes well. When is it scheduled for?

    Maddy hasn't met the girls yet, but I am sure they will become acquainted today.
