So yesterday we just, I say Just with a big smile on my face, we just hung around on the beach all day.
It really was lovely! More windy than the previous 2 days, and although we both had on spf50 and 55 we got a little pink.
It's good to travel with Suk; I tend to be a bit introverted and Suk is very friendly open, and outgoing. She strikes up conversations with people so where I wouldn't have if alone, we are meeting and having long conversations with lots of people.
One thing we have both commented on here are the number of Germans, well I think they are German. I'm pretty sure it is a Germanic language but is is swiss german, french german, german german, no se!
Lots of Italians too! Unfortunately all these Europeans smoke, a lot! Guacala! In fact there is one on the balcony right next to me smoking right now! BLECH!
Right outside our balcony is a large bare limbed Flamboyan that is higher than the surrounding trees. It is a great bird perch. Each morning I see Social Flycatchers, Orioles, hummingbirds, Yucatan Jays and Melodious Blackbirds taking turns perching here. In the tree canopies are large black iguanas catching the morning sun and a leafy breakfast.
Yesterday, in addition to all the other wildlife we saw chacalacas in the trees. Quite a lot of fauna here on these grounds; adds quite a bit of interest for me.
As I sit here a new, unfamiliar to me bird comes, white eye streak, reddish tail uppers, yellowish below, long pointy beak, greyish black with dots on shoulders and short choppy streaks all over, and quite a screechie call. I'll have to look this up when I get home to my books.
Today we have our spa treatments; Suk had massage Tuesday, and is getting the hot stone massage today. I am having a package; facial, exfoliation, and massage. I should be glowing when I get home.
Oh, I could definitly go for a few more days of this!. We had thought to go to Playa del Carmen yesterday but never made it, maybe next time. We need to leave quite early tomorrow as I have a very important event to attend at 2pm, and we want to stop at some stone carvers we saw coming in before reaching Tulum, maybe get some new yard art.
