We all made it home safely. Shari & I are back to work.
We were all sitting down and talking about our experience in Coz. We all feel very fortunate that we chose to stay at Vista Del Mar. If we had chosen to stay somewhere else, we may have ended up staying in a less desireable place. We all, also, agreed how lucky we were to be in the hands of those that make Vista Del Mar, and Hacienda San Maguel the special hotels they are. You made us feel like family.
Hurricane Emily, overall, was gentle on the island of Coz, and on those that were there, when she came through. Yes, there was major damage, and many misfortunes, but most importantly, there were no deaths. Material things can be replaced, but humans can't.
I/we applaud the government (President Gustavo), and the radio/tv stations for doing such a good job at preparing everyone for the Hurricane. After all, if the people of the island aren't protected then there is no Cozumel.
Once again, I/we want to thank all of you for taking such good care of us. For this we are truly grateful. This is what keeps us coming back. Please, don't ever forget, you all do make a difference - You all are Cozumel. We also, thank God for taking care of you and your island. We hope and pray he continues to bless each and everyone of you and your families, just like he continues to bless us.
Until next time,
Jeff, Shari, and Sara :.)
