Isla Mujeres 2017 Trip Report-Day 8

day8.4

dy8-3

Our little ray of sunshine.

This was the day we moved from Centro to our “home”-Luna d’Miel.  J1 & J2, the little girls, Daughter #1, Lori and the rest of entourage departed that morning. Our sunshine had quite the melt down when they had to leave for the ferry.

We waved farewell and then packed up what was left in our hotel and waited for our golf cart to be delivered. We drove to Luna d’Miel to make sure we could check in, then drove back with our stuff, and were settled by 1 pm.

As is always the case, we felt at “home” with D in his hammock and I to the surf and the beach.

We switched from hammock to chairs and back again. Later in the afternoon, we went to Chedrui for special potato chips and ate them with rum and colas for our Happy Hour in the front roadside chairs.

We went down to Playa Sol with what was left of the gang for the last sunset before D & D (the newly married couple) departed for Tulum.

Sister #2 and I walked to Amar (click on link to read all about our dinner) to ensure they could accommodate all of us. The place was very well appointed and as Dyl pointed out “it had a nice vibe”. When we arrived the place was not terribly busy but by the time we ordered, every table was occupied.

I did not record in my journal what we got up to after dinner but I suspect it was what we do every evening of our stay at Luna D’Miel. We sat together by the water and listened to the crashing waves, while reflecting on another day in paradise and how we were truly blessed to experience it.

The French Toast.

Then it was off to the beach to visit Brother #3, SIL #3 and Sister #3 before the latter had to return home the next day. She had 2 of Hortenzia’s grandchildren at the beach for the day.

Forgot that we were trying to get to the beach as a family so I left and called in at home.

Spent time at the docks until we saw Gary & Honor and Kate & Ben off at the ferry with promises that we would get to Australia very soon.

I was able to find the gang renting beds at Fenix. Spent some time there until Daughter #1 & Lori arrived. Dylan, Dani, Sister #2, Michael, Jon, Nicole, and her fiancé were all there too.

Went to pick up boneless ribs from Tino’s for supper which we ate at the hotel. Took the Wee Ones to the liquado spot for “gessert”. Showered the eldest and daughter Boo put the youngest down for us. Spent the evening baby sitting for J1 & J2.

Poppa and Glamma took them for a walk on the pier while they waited for their food. Our dinner was yet to come at Sardinia Smiles (see link here).  After dinner, D and I didn’t want the evening to end so we took our wine glasses down to the malecon for a night cap.

Soon I was off with Sister #3 to Castille d’ Maya where the wedding party was getting ready. We needed  to get our eyelashes affixed.

J1 was to be one of the Masters of Ceremonies and I the officiate so we arrived at Zama early to get a feel for what was ahead. Here is a recounting of that special day. The Wedding
