It was written in the stars.
My sister, Katie Graves' astrologer knew a woman in Tulum that runs retreats. And so it was all launched from the stars. This makes me smile and yet, seems so natural and right. The brightness has fired, because of the dark.
Katie was always supposed to go with me to the Bitter End in 2018. It's something we discussed and determined mid-May. What ensued in September is something that no one ever could have prepared for. Hurricane Irma ripped through the BVIs and the Bitter End Yacht Club wrecking sentimental structures down to honed planks. She collapsed roofs and docks like twigs and stockpiled boats that had been strewn like leaves. It's heart wrenching. The whole fall hurricane season destruction. Efforts are in place to help like: www.beyc.com to support, rebuild and revitalize those beautiful, special places - bit by bit.
So the Tulum retreat is launching under a veil of sadness, but in high hope and sheathed in such gladness. This is a new opportunity with all that freshness feeling appeal. And I haven't been to Mexico since I dyed my hair tangerine at eighteen. Luckily, the girl from Tulum, that runs retreats, has become a friend and has been so generous and helpful with designing this for paddle board enthusiasts, fun-lovers, sunbathers and adventure seekers. She'll be there to help us all along the way. So what do you say?
Here's to something new. Can we do new together? Starry, starry nights in Tulum? Feel free to reach out to discuss!
