We were up a half an hour early so that we could still have our morning routine of coffee and the sunrise

new-york-15-isla-16-2330

and our last visit with H & G.

The taxi came a smidge early so we had a half hour wait for the ferry. I used the time to take some last shots of Medina.

One last pouty pic.

We walked into town to say goodbye to Brother #3 & L (with their sad pouty faces on).

isladay13-10

We snagged a cab to Mango Cafe.

new-york-15-isla-16-2239

I chose the eggs bennie on chia leaves, mushrooms and curry hollandaise.

new-york-15-isla-16-2237

D had the Stuffed Pobalno Chili. Everything was absolutely excellent as always.

new-york-15-isla-16-2242 new-york-15-isla-16-2243

We made it for the last 20 minutes of church.

new-york-15-isla-16-2246 new-york-15-isla-16-2247 new-york-15-isla-16-2250

We strolled home.

new-york-15-isla-16-2251

I headed out for a last opportunity of beachcombing.

new-york-15-isla-16-2252

It was a hot one as the clouds had subsided as well as the breeze.

new-york-15-isla-16-2260

So we conserved our energy and simply hung out for the rest of the day at Luna d’ Miel.

new-york-15-isla-16-2255

Me, showing off my tan (and my wrinkly neck).

new-york-15-isla-16-2263 new-york-15-isla-16-2264

We packed for our morning departure and strolled into Centro for our progressive dinner:

new-york-15-isla-16-2268 new-york-15-isla-16-2269 new-york-15-isla-16-2271

Our fist appetizer was a shared Bimbo Dog.

We were fascinated by these two little girls that we could see from our seats. They were apparently fishing with a piece of fishing line.

We caught one last glorious sunset and then headed to the square for Churros.

new-york-15-isla-16-2316

On the way home we grabbed Pizza from Suny’s for the next day. We shared a lovely bottle of Camenere with the stars and waves. We had a fabulous holidays and it was so leisurely we kept saying: “We’re still here!”

Isla Mujeres Trip Report-Day 12

December14

Fabulous sunrise this morning.

isladay12-1 isladay12-2 isladay12-3 isladay12-4 isladay12-5 isladay12-6

Another glorious sunrise where we worked up an appetite for a Isla ham & egg breakfast.

isladay12-7

Relatively slim pickings while beachcombing for beach glass.

isladay12-8 isladay12-9

We walked to town for a pareo at Hortenzia’s.

isladay12-10 isladay12-11

Once a season, Hortenzia will leave the shop under a family members’ watchful eye, to join us with a couple of the grandkids on the beach.

As we prepared to hail a cab back to the airport strip, a couple of gals offered us a lift in their golf cart. It occurred to us that this would be a great way to meet more fellow travellers and save some cab money. We only rent for one day over a couple of weeks but we are committed to offering people a lift, just like the kindness that we received.

We headed home for nachos and beer.

D napped before sunset at Playa Sol with the gang and then dinner at Fredy’s.

We all had Fredy’s pork chops while Carol had Fredys’s shrimp and cousin Sandra the Mexican plate. Everybody loved their dinner.

For dessert we strolled Hidalgo and treated ourselves to Ferrero Roche ice cream cones.

We grabbed a taxi home for wine and waves.

Isla Mujeres Trip Report-Day 10

December7

No sunrise so I unconsciously decided to sleep until 9:30! D had already gotten the paper by the time I was up. Spent all day in the sun doing nothing. Did a lot of reading of “Girl on a Train”.

isladay10-1 isladay10-2 isladay10-3 isladay10-4 isladay10-5

We walked into Centro for dinner. There was no sunset again.

isladay10-7

isladay10-9

We get such a kick out of the décor at La Lomita. We watched while all these magnolia blossoms were being painted onto the walls a couple of years ago.

isladay10-8

I swear they have the best French fries. I don’t mean the best on Isla or the best in Mexico, I mean THE BEST fries I have ever tasted in my life anywhere!

We were dining at Sardinian Smile but were too early for Sylvia so we went to La Lomita for beer and fries. We were over the moon with Sardinian Smile (follow the link for the full feature).

isladay10-11

We were home in time for wine & the stars.
