Isla Mujeres 2020 Trip Report-Day 7



Three very special things occurred on this day. We had our lovely brunch at Coco Jaquar, I moved to our beloved Luna d’ Miel and my husband joined me on the island!


Have you ever seen the suite at Luna D’ Miel? Before we left there were brand new bar stools installed at our counter. The apartment has this lovely kitchen/living/dining area. The first thing I always do is open up all the curtains. When we first started staying there, you could see water to the west but now that building has increased on the airport strip that view is gone. I also love to see the traffic go by. It does get pretty busy but it is still lovely to see the Isla families go by as well as happy folks in their golf carts.


There is an enormous and comfortable bed


and the view is outstanding! Sometimes if the wind is too fierce, I sit and read in this chair with the window slightly cracked open so I can still hear the waves.


The bathroom is spacious with plenty of hot water and good water pressure.


Our hammock wasn’t hanging when I arrived but all I had to do was let Mario know and it was installed immediately. The hammock is one of D’s favourite features of the apartments so it was waiting for him when he arrived.


We set the alarm so that we can have our coffees in hand as we wait to watch the sun rise. We also end each evening with a glass of wine under the stars. It is fun to watch the hermit crabs run by, notice the constellations that are so different than home and see the lights of cruise ships on the horizon.


Once I met D off the ferry (I didn’t recognise him at first because he had shaved off all his facial hair), we kept our tradition of walking over to Bally Hoo.


The beer is always deliciously cold and the shrimp tacos are swell.


I missed sunset that evening but saw a glimmer of it as we walked into town to have dinner with friends Jan and Bruce.


We met this precious couple a number of years prior and love to get together to get caught up each year. I have the added bonus of visiting them on the beach. We started with drinks at Morgan’s but conversation was so engaging that we got the munchies and stayed for dinner. We ordered nachos


and lobster tacos.


D ordered shrimp again and they arrived with their heads and tails still on!

We made two stops on our way home to Luna, one for groceries and the other for gelato at the corner. I had Mango in a sugar cone and D had pistachio and caramel in a cup.

We did try to sit our back that evening but it was too chilly so it was early lights out on D’s first evening.
