 Robin's Best Shirt Award, September 6, 2013

Up to this point, September has been a very wet month, with daily thunder storms rolling across the Caribbean Sea and Akumal, but all of that did little to dampen the enthusiastic crowd that made its way to the Lol Ha Beach Bar for September's Best Shirt Award.  There were some fantabulous entries that gave the judges fits, as they went back and forth trying to agree on a winner, and without fail, they did choose a standout entry as the deserving winner.

No more suspense. Who is it?

Dan Freeman. All that shopping in Philly paid off.

Congratulations to Dan, who gives the thumbs up.
