Colour: It's surrounds us.

It’s hard not to get caught up in the extravaganza of colour on this little Caribbean island - Isla Mujeres.
There are blues in shades of azure, cobalt, navy, sapphire, cerulean and indigo, and greens running from jade green, and emerald, to bright lime greens.
Other colours of the island palette include crimson, scarlet or ruby reds, with a little added zing of papaya, orange, lemon and banana. Wow!

In Canada we grew up with more sedate colours reflecting the thick forests of conifers, dark northern Pacific grey-blue seas, enlivened for a few months with splashes of spring blossoms. Each year I could hardly wait for spring to arrive to brighten the dun-coloured landscape.
Living in the Caribbean, I can hardly wait to open my eyes to start a new day.
