Photo Story Friday: The Infamous Pole

Oh look! Another wonderful excuse to scan old pictures and bore you to tears!! Yay!

(Welllll … hello waist. I haven’t seen you in quite some time.)

Beach - 1990

This was taken on a beach in Cozumel, Mexico back in 1990. Kevin and I were on our honeymoon and we rented a moped (I believe they now call them scooters for all you young whipper-snappers out there) and drove to the less inhabited part of the island where we stopped to have lunch.

It was traditional for all new visitors to carve (or write) their initials into this pole I’m leaning against.

If you look really closely, you can see what Kevin wrote in the pole in red ink. If you can’t see it, you can click here to see a larger version.

If you don’t know, me, Kevin and the boys all went back to Cozumel Mexico on our cruise this past June. And one of the missions we set out for ourselves was to find this pole and show the boys what we wrote.

But alas. The hut was no longer there. That side of the island gets pummeled by hurricanes and it tore that hut down years ago, so we didn’t get to see the pole, but it was so much fun to visit the area where our life began.

Ahh … to BE 25 again.
