Away for a While

This weekend I will be leaving for vacation. For the next two weeks we will be playing the part of latter day hippies, wandering along the beaches of southern Mexico. No real itinerary, just going where the wind takes us. Although I will be carting a lot of camera equipment, i’m not taking my computer. Won’t be much in the way of internet access where we will be anyway. If I see an internet cafe, I might check-in. Just wanted everyone to know why I’m not answering mail and comments. i haven’t really dropped off the earth! lol Will hopefully have many interesting photos when I return! Take care everyone!
