We took one last golf cart scoot into town and back again.

We had arranged to drop off the golf cart at 830 am where we were met by Eduardo who took us to a boat. We were being treated to AGI Tours VIP service. See the link here. It was a lovely ride over with 2 other couples (a Dentist married to a Dermitologist). We had our own van to the airport. Easy Peasy. And just like that we were home.

D talked me into breakfast out even though I was concerned about eating all the left overs in our fridge. We went to Mango for stuffed poblano and coconut French toast (me). We absolutely love Mango’s.

We took the golf cart there and back. We took some beautiful pics at the church across the street.

We emptied our kitchen and dropped off a bunch of leftover goodies with Hortenzia. Then we spent a couple of hours at the beach, wading in the water, taking some last pictures and reading. D finished his 2nd book in 2 days.

When we came “home” D confirmed arrangements at Sunset Grill as well as our VIP service in the morning. We sipped Kahlua while our bathing suits and my hair dried.

I wrote all about our dinner at Sunset Grill in this link.

We started watching the exquisite sunset from Sunset Grill

and then carried on from our trusty golf cart.

We walked Hidalgo one last time and treated ourselves to Ferrero Roche gelato for dessert.

On our second to last full day, D has walked into town. We are working out some logistics about paying for this year, booking next year and where we want to eat our last meals and see our last glimpses of the sea.

A rare photo of me. I am usually the one holding the camera.

day13-7

We love the Caribbean side of the island. If we were ever able to stay some place long term, it would have to have at least a glimpse of the water.

day13-9

day13-10

I especially enjoy looking at this home where you can see the water right through the house.

The colours that Lo Lo painted her home have always been my favourite.

We had a long and lovely cart ride through Colonias so that I could take some last photos and then home for reads, hammock time and amazing left overs from Angelo’s.

Our progressive dinner (we do one every year) commenced early with a booze delivery to Javi’s and sampling their fried asparagus which was fantastic.

day13-21

Next stop was Mininoes for Camaroon Soup. Also delicious.

From Mininoes we walked into Centro to decide on our next course.

day13-32

Do I love blue because it is the colour of the Caribbean or because it is the colour of my Love’s eyes?

We enjoyed entrees of fish cakes and drunken noodles with shrimp at Asia Caribe. Unfortunately the light was not complimentary to my photo taking. Suffice it to say, they were delicious to see and eat!

day13-35

We were too full to sample their amazing desserts but ended sharing churros as we strolled “home” to the airport strip. Our island time was almost at an end.

Up for another glorious sunrise and then off to pick up Boo and the Frenchman for 8 am. We must have been early because we managed to get them onto the 8 am ferry.

day12-5

Afterwards we toodled around for breakfast fixings to no avail so we had our yoghurt especiale.

day12-9

After zooming around the island some more, to see if Bruja was open, we ended up having lunch a Q Brava. Delicious and cheap cubano mixto totas.

In between the day was filled with shelling, reading, napping, etc.

day12-15

D made amazing pina cooladas for Happy Hour Part 1, then we headed to playa sol for a lengthy sunset with wine.

day12-16

day12-17

We may have had a little bit too much to drink for D got his foot stuck between the brake and accelerator of the golf cart. Turns out he was able to pop the cart that we ran into’s headlight back into place without a mark-whew.

day12-22

We tried Rubens for dinner and when it was closed for a first anniversary party, we ended up at Angelo’s for fruita de mare pizza and pasta (photos were out of focus, I confess).  As I have said before, Angelo’s equals our meals in Italy.  We headed home and tried to watch the Winnipeg Jets’ game but we were too pooped so it was lights out.

D has walked into town and I am contemplating the day. The breeze has died down and there are no clouds. Might be a hot one! To my surprise D has discovered how much he likes beachcombing saying that it is both relaxing and good exercise! I joined him for a while yesterday.

day11-6

D made his fabulous ham omelets for brunch.

We were kicking around possibilities for the day when Boo & the Frenchman texted saying that they would love to come over again to sit in the shade and watch the waves. We went to fetch them in our golf cart and did exactly that.

day11-12

D made cocktails. He and I were too hungry to chase down sunset so we went right to Brisas Grill. It was a busy place and we were lucky to get a table when we did. D had grouper and cilantro sauce and I had seafood pasta in a white wine sauce. We did not think that it was as good as when they were on the beach. We were home in time for a glass of wine and Suits on Netflix.
