After lunch we headed to the beach and tried out some of the complimentary water sports. There was kayaking and wind-surfing. Freddy and I kayaked and so did Kacie, TJ and Andrew and Morgan and Rachel, but Hag tried windsurfing. It took him awhile, but he KIND OF got the hang of it by the end. Rachel tried it and popped right up and Morgan tried, too, with about as much success as Hag.Andrew, Kacie and TJ kayaking Hag got up!
Determined not to burn, I piled on the sunblock. I tried to do the same for my husband, who you can tell by the pictures is pretty fair but it didn’t help much. He applied sunscreen once and didn’t ask for help, so he burned in the places that he couldn’t reach. All he had to do was ask! Men.
This night we ventured to Playa del Carmen. We ate at Carlos and Charlie’s and that was a lot of fun. Kacie didn’t feel well, so her and Andrew hung out at the resort and ordered room service.
We ventured down 5th street and did a little shopping. I had to make my customary Mexico purchases – Vanilla and a refrigerator magnet. I bet we saw three Subways on our walk. Subways were everywhere in Mexico! And McDonalds and Starbucks, too – just like the good ‘ol USA.
After much searching (and asking many people where it was), we found The Beer Bucket. The Beer Bucket is a small bar owned by radio dj in Dallad, Big Al Mac. It was small but we liked it. Freddy especially liked the $2 Coronas.After a few hours in Playa, we headed back to the resort and straight to bed. The beds were not very comfortable, but they were more comfortable than the ones at the resort where we stayed last year.
