I can't help but type this with a small smile on my face and a feeling of calm and relaxation. One look at the photos and I'm back in Tulum (Mexico) in a heartbeat… I can hear the sound of the waves and the wind rustling the palm leaf roof of the hut we slept in. I can feel the breeze from the ocean playing softly over my skin, and remember how my mind wandered in a pleasant haze while I looked at the water, at lovely husband C., debated reading my book and then closed my eyes and drifted off instead.
I loved how I didn't need anything but my bathers for four days straight. Flip-flops were strictly optional as it was roughly twenty steps from our hut to the water over powder soft, perfectly white sand. When we wanted a change of scene, we'd move from the sun lounge to the hammock. When the sun started to set, we'd walk along the beach watching families play and dogs race along the sand.
It was a place of perfect, utter calm and relaxation. My favorite beach in the Northern Hemisphere... so far.
From New York, with love xox
