ALL IN THE FAMILY

A Multigenerational Trip to Mexico

  1. The Ingall family in Tankah Tres, Mexico, December 2008. (Anna Wolf)
  2. A castillo of our own: "We were on the beach in front of our house making another cenote. And a castle. We made three cenotes. Daddy was a better digger than Mommy was." —Maxine (Anna Wolf)
  3. Hiking at Sian Ka'an: "This was toward the end of our day in the biosphere. Maxine was whining incessantly for snacks. Fortunately, our guide Ladualina had a stash of granola bars." —Carol (Anna Wolf)
  4. El Castillo at Muyil: "Josie scampered up this pyramid and then froze, afraid to climb down. Jonathan had to help her descend, step by step, as she sobbed." —Betsy (Anna Wolf)
  5. Ice cream from Lucy's Kitchen in Akumal: "This was one of Shirley's favorite spots on the trip. The girl behind the counter was a volunteer with World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms who also helped out in Lucy's organic garden." —Andy (Courtesy Marjorie Ingall)
  6. In the hammock on our porch: "I swinging. It good." —Shirley (Anna Wolf)
  7. Touring ancient trade routes: "I loved sitting in the front of the boat pretending I was a mermaid."
    Josie (Anna Wolf)
  8. Relaxing on the villa's beach: "I read five novels and eight back issues of The New Yorker!" —Carol (Courtesy Marjorie Ingall)
  9. Exploring in Tulum: "It was sweltering—check out the sweat stains on my shirt. But a few minutes after this photo was taken, the sky opened up and it poured. It felt great." —Jonathan (Courtesy Marjorie Ingall)
  10. Bobbing among the mangroves: "We felt pretty stupid wearing our life vests upside down for the 45-minute float on the canal in the Muyil lagoon, but it freed up our arms and kept us from putting our feet down to walk. If I'd only had a beer!" —Jonathan (Anna Wolf)
  11. "In daylight, the full beauty of the setting hit us. It felt like being on an ocean liner, with sweeping sea views all the way to the horizon." —Marjorie (Anna Wolf)
