Mexico day fourteen – last full day :(

Awake just after 07:00 and breakfast at 08:00 then because there was no rain we were on the beach for 09:15.

No Karen today presume she was on a day off, but Edinson was there with his cheeky smile and customary “hello mate”

Lunch was provided by Leo who showed us how to prepare chivechi, which was salsa with raw fish but he couldn’t give us raw fish due to health and safety so it was cooked prawns – delicious

Later in the afternoon the skies opened and it poured down with rain so we sheltered at the beach bar!

We ate Japanese tonight and sat with a lovely couple from Newcastle who were celebrating his 21st

Back outside the restaurant it was raining hard and we managed to get a members shuttle back to our block

Now all packed ready for the lunchtime pickup back to the airport

Love Mexico very relaxing

Mexico – day thirteen – broken toe day

Up early and it had stopped raining but no sunshine as it was hiding in the clouds somewhere!

Breakfast in the buffet, then a coffee in the coffee shop and still no sun so we headed off towards the beach where the turtles nest. Michele hadn’t seen the nests before so off we went.

The surf was up and the waves on the beach had washed away the hatched and discarded turtle shells from the other day, but there was one left that Michele could see. The nests were still intact though.

We spent a while walking the beach and watching the waves crash into the rocks before heading off to our beach.

It was cloudy all day so Michele dozed while I swam in the sea. Later in the afternoon I stubbed my little toe on my left foot. Looking at the colour (purple) I think I’ve broken it 🙁

Tonight we’ve eaten at the Mediterranean restaurant, slow between courses but maybe the best meal we’ve had in two weeks. Michele had lamb and I had tuna.

Sat in the quiet bar talking to Gail from Toronto the heavens opened and the skies flashed with lightening

Now back in our room watching the New England Patriots destroy the Denver Broncos
