Holley & Jarek, Cancun Wedding

We’ve traveled and adventured as often as possible, but never once have be snorkeled in the ocean off a catamaran in a rain storm. It was a tad bit worrisome and chilly as it started to rain, but once we braved the (what we thought was) cold ocean, it was so warm. What an experience. […]
