A digression from New Orleans for today --
Ever had a place you couldn't get out of your mind? We took a cruise from New Orleans down to the Yucatan Peninsula about a year ago. It is weighing heavy on me this morning because this little village in Costa Maya took a direct hit from Hurricane Dean yesterday. Sure, it has weathered storms before, but, a Category 5 storm coming at you at 20 miles an hour is sure going to change the landscape.You can see the structures are not very substantial. (I like to call the photo above "Beachfront condo" but I think this is a motel)-- easy to rebuild. Nonetheless, this kind of storm gives you little to rebuild from.
I tell everyone that there is a chair down there a few feet out in the water with my name on it. Not so sure about that any more.
I guess that's why you have photos... the dream lives on
