May 2014

Dear Freddie,

So we had some excitement here last earthquake!!

Click to View
I was lying on the couch watching Real Housewives of Melbourne (don't judge me) and I felt our building swaying a bit. We live in a high-rise and sometimes when it's windy there's a very slight swaying so I didn't really think anything of it. That's when Dave came in from the office to say we were having an earthquake!!!
Have you ever felt an earthquake? I went most of my adult-life without ever feeling one, but in the past 5 years or so I've had the misfortune of being in several. I've noticed that my first instinct seems to be to run outside, which apparently is not recommended. Dave was born and raised in California so he is very used to earthquakes and he keeps telling me that running outside is one of the worst things you can do. Who knew? I told Dave that when the big one hits it's every man for himself. :)
Luckily the earthquake was far enough away from populated areas so there was no damage, but it for sure is a wake-up call. Do you have an emergency kit just in case? Click HERE for information on the Canadian Red Cross and their disaster preparedness kits. 


Anywho, have a great month and chat with you  soon.

El  Cid La Ceiba - Diving on Cozumel

Did you know that El Cid Resorts has a small property on the island of Cozumel, that specializes in diving packages?  The Babieca Dive Center, on property, has PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) certified dive masters. 


Cozumel Diving  

Dave says, "I'm a PADI certified diver, and I LOVE staying at a resort where I have easy access to the dive boats and dive masters.  As I only get to dive every few years, having a knowledgeable dive master puts my mind a ease, and having a dive center on property saves me from hauling heavy dive gear on ferries, buses or shuttles."


Click HERE to view some of the Hotel & Dive Group Packages.


With colourful reefs, exotic flora and fauna, and friendly people, Cozumel artfully blends the Mexican heart and Caribbean soul. Nestled on Cozumel's pristine southern shoreline across form Playa del Carmen, El Cid La Ceiba Beach is an oceanfront retreat in a warm and relaxing setting.
