So I have yet to blog about the visits of two of my favorite friends, from New York, Cat and Christine. Christine arrived first on December 28th. I was able to take the day off the first day after her arrival which was nice. We spent the day driving around the Island, stopping off at every beach that caught our fancy, and catching up on everything that had happened since we last saw each other. Christine and I have become pretty good friends over the years. We met through diving and tended to see each other once every three months or so. Christine is awesome - I think she looks just like Katherine Hepburn. She's also fiercely honest and together, I love shooting the shit with Christine about all and everything. Here she is standing on one of the rocky beaches:Cat arrived on the 31st. I picked her up from Scuba Shack and then she came to sunset beach with me while I dove with some resort divers. Cat had a massage while I dove and then we had lunch with my co-instructor Fernando and his kids. It was nice to introduce Cat to Fernando and show her where I work. i really miss having Cat in my life. We'd tend to see each other once a week in New Jersey. One of my favorite nights out would be to go round to Cat's house, order sushi and drink some wine. We'd talk, sing and watch the New York sky line. Anyway Cat and I finished on Sunset Beach just in time to pick up Hans and Allie from their Hotel for a quick chat before we all got ready for dinner.
We spent NYE at Sorisi's, an Italian restaurant which is normally awesome. Unfortunately they were overrun and the food was not great. Nevertheless we had a good time. Here are some pics:
Christine left on Jan 3rd which gave me some quality time with Cat. It was great to hang out with one of my best friends. I only wish Cat would come and live in Cozumel - so she's be a stone's throw away again. I MISS YOU CAT!!!!!!!!!
