Today I discovered a unique filter in a photo-editing program.  It's the Kaleidoscope effect.  

I simply uploaded photos taken on my last trip to Isla Mujeres in June/July and clicked.  Pretty wild!  I should make readers guess what each photo is, but I'll just spill the beans.

A beach sunset photo.

A photo of a painting.
The inner tube painted with Coco Frios that hangs on the beach across from Guadalupana.
A friend's palapa balcony.

A panga parked at the dock by Bally Hoo.

The brightly painted chapel and wall along Medina in La Gloria.

This one's a favorite!  It's the palms along Playa Norte in front of Maria del Mar where I park my beach chair.  Love!
Some people get addicted to Candy Crush.  I'm addicted to photo editing!  Some of these may end up on my living room walls.

When the Sun Goes Down

Last night's amazing moonrise here in Arizona made me remember some of the amazing views I've witnessed at sunset on Isla Mujeres.  We weren't on the west side of the island much in the evening during our July trip, but I did manage to take a few photos when the ball sunk into the sea!

Actually, this must be a moonrise!
Mariachis looking for a sundown serenade on Playa Norte.
Watching the sunset from Playa Norte.
Frigate at sundown.  Most of the sunsets in late June/early July were very hazy.  Do they call that June gloom?
Here's the Disco Bus passing at sunset with a pink glow.  One of these days I'm going to take a sunset ride on the Disco Bus!
