For the past several years my family and I have traveled to the same town in Mexico for the February vacation. The town is Tulum and the draw is sun, the beach, the lifestyle and the Bio-sphere. The Sian Kaan Bio-Sphere is a preserve or National park that runs South from Tulum virtually to Mexico’s border with Belize. The put it spatial terms, its an area the size of Rhode Island.
Not surprisingly there is both exotic Mayan history and abundant wildlife. In the past the photographic highlight for me has always been our evening boat trip to the Bird Island within the boundaries of the Bio-Sphere. (see the post from Feb. 2011). This year was different because we were able to rent one of the few homes that was within the borders of the Bio-sphere. The lagoon was available virtually any time.
This year, I was equipped with a water proof Sony Camera, the TSX – 10.On the first evening there, before I figured out that the Bird Island was 5 miles (8 Kilometers) away, my friend Shawn and I set out to paddle to the Island. Suffice to say we failed miserably. But the paddle back proved to me that the birds, while lovely, were just a sideshow.

Connecticut’s mixture of a highly educated population and it’s strong defense, manufacturing and financial industries helps it compete in the global economy.
Connecticut’s proximity to New York City; its rich food and art culture; its elaborate mass-transit system; and its idyllic setting along the Long Island Sound makes it a great place to live.

Imagine your little old grandmother with her group of old girlfriends going through this store, gabbing and picking out their yarn for their next knitting project.

Welcome one and all to a grand photograph from Barry Hyman! Barry shot this house recently for Linda Skolnick a realtor with Prudential in Connecticut. It takes a team to take a plot of land and create a home that not only is livable but is a reflection of the taste of the owner. This entry way is only the begining to an exceptionally lovely home, kudous to Harrison Gill the architect. Of course we cannot forget one of our favorite builkders that brought this vision into reality, the talented J Tallman.
