 March 7, 2014 Robin's Best Shirt Award

Even with Robin's Best Shirt Award trophy still missing, the locals turned out in huge numbers to vie for the award and welcome a number people who had returned to Akumal just for this fantabulous monthly event.  As usual, the competition was fierce, and the judges remained anonymous as they made their selection in total secrecy.

Thanks to Judy Baxter and Denny Mahan for the photos.
