Really, it wasn't much of a frog, barely two inches long, But it would, in a most amazing manner, position itself about 8 inches from the top of the ceiling tucked in the corner of two walls. Sucker feet I guess. Obviously it had to leave from time to time for food so it would escape through the openings serving as windows and normally by daytime it would return to its usual spot. But it's been a couple of days now and hasn't returned. Perhaps it found a better corner.
As the paucity of blog updates demonstrate, I've been otherwise occupied. I'm the GM of Num Ka'an Ranch, just outside the small village of Xul-Ha on the banks of southern end of Laguna Bacalar (AKA Laguna Xul-Ha since we're south of the narrows they call "The Rapids"). Along with Wifey, our new Guest Services and Marketing Manager, we've taken on the responsibility of making the Ranch "The Jewel of the South" in the State of Quintana Roo. We have a lot to work with: fantastic owners, great staff, delicious recipes, lots of cold beverages, the nicest pool around, and horses. Oh, and of course the beautiful nature all around us from the savannah to the lake. I'm finally at the point where I can find a bit of free time to keep the blog up-to-date.
So now that you know what has kept us busy for the past 2 months, there's little else to write about. The Operations Manual is coming along nicely, the website has become practically a full-time gig for David, our Bar Manager, we're revamping the menu (leaning toward Tex-Mex), and marketing is happening in earnest. Yet, as we all know, nothing on such a scale happens overnight. Too bad.
Until next time, I'll keep an eye out for the frog.
