My daughter texted me first thing this morning that it was going to be rainy and she ended up being right. She must have a different weather app than me as mine did not indicate rain but right after she said that it started raining so I was lazy and stayed in the room and skipped breakfast. Then I walked down to the grocery store to get pesos out of the ATM and they were out of pesos so I walked to the bank and got some. We need a bunch for our big adventure to Hol Box.
I walked to the artisan market again and bought two little beaded birds to replace the two that I bought yesterday and thought I had lost but I found them right after I bought the other ones. They will make nice Christmas ornaments. The kind seniora at the market threw in an ankle bracelet￼.
Met my daughter and son-in-law at the hotel and then we walked down to have brunch. I had some lovely French toast and a bottle of water.￼
Spent a relaxing afternoon at the beach as it cleared off nicely. It was good to enjoy the ocean and to soak up some sun.￼
Decided it would be a good night to eat at Chi Chi and Charlie’s because this would be my last sunset on the island and Chi Chi and Charlie’s is a perfect location to enjoy the sunset.￼ We had mixed ceviche for an appetizer and I decided to treat myself to lobster. It was delicious with a little bowl of melted butter and another little bowl of garlic for dipping. 540 pesos for a lobster tail.￼
After dinner we walked around a bit and walked down Hidalgo and checked out some artists that had paintings and jewelry and other things for sale west of the city Square. We didn’t buy anything but it’s always fun to look. I was sleepy after dinner so decided to go back to the hotel early.
I am meeting the kids at 6:45 to take the boat that we have charter to Hol Box I am super excited!￼
Breakfast at Mogagua and then some time at the beach. The clouds came and went and it was windy. Bought sound trinkets and then lunch at Chimbos.
My son-in-law went to have a massage so my daughter and I sat in the hot tub￼ and enjoyed the view.
Went to dinner at Asian Caribe and then mass for Christmas Eve. It was interesting to see the tradition of the women bringing the dolls dressed as baby Jesus to be blessed.
