THE REEFS OF COZUMEL

Cozumel Reef

In honor of World Oceans Day, we wanted to share with you some photos from our dive in Cozumel’s reefs. Part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the second largest coral reef system in the world, the Cozumel reef system is famous for its spectacular reefs. As one of the world's top dive destinations, Cozumel's reef system encompasses hundreds of dive sites at numerous individual reefs along the extensive Mesoamerican Reef System. The biodiversity of these beautiful reefs are unbelievable!

FRIDA KAHLO AT NYBG

We finally had a chance to get away to The New York Botanical Garden to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition. It is the first exhibition to showcase Frida Kahlo’s love of the natural world. It was so inspiring! The Botanical Garden did a wonderful job of re-imagining her famed Casa Azul garden and studio.

The exhibit also features a rare display of more than a dozen original Kahlo paintings and works on paper. The show runs May 16-Nov 1st 2015. nybg.org
