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.
