Isla Mujeres Trip Report-Day 9, Part 1

May1

We are into our Isla routine of waking up with the sun.  We are rewarded over and over again with incredible colours and play of light and water.

We spent a lovely morning on the Caribe side of our little room and the delightful street patio.

D is really content this year to just stay put in the mornings.  I did some beach-combing while D read and sunned in the hammock.  He is learning how to truly relax and lap up the pleasures that the island has to offer.

In the late morning, we walked to the north Colonias to explore together. As much as I love Centro, the “neighbourhoods” offer a charm all their own.

And the people are just as gorgeous as the brightly coloured buildings.

I spot a place that I absolutely cannot resist capturing with my camera.  It has a familiar feel and then I realize that it is Lolo Lorena’s.  I have dined there only once and it was dark when I arrived and so I did not recognize it in the brilliant sunshine.

Lorena is across the street from a house where a person creates shell hangings that are illuminated.  I got a gorgeous one for our gazebo back home.  At $30 for a work of art, I was thrilled.

Isla Lunch Spot

We found this little place for lunch only to find that they weren’t yet serving lunch.  We always seem to want to eat earlier than islanders.

Isla Iquana

So we stopped  (for our very first visit) at Iguana’s at Marina Pariso.  You might say that Iguana’s is appropriately named.   The lunch area is a shady spot under a canopy of leaves with beautiful lanterns adorning the boughs.

We shared lunch of fish and chips (fabulous fried fish and ok fries) and a simple but absolutely delicious onion and potato omelet.

With 2 icy cold coronas to wash it down and a beautiful setting, it was a great lunch.

We strolled down to the marina before winding our way back through the Colonias and our way home.

We actually wore ourselves out with the long walk home, so we had to rest up before we ventured out for the evening.

Love-that is all.

    Looks like your camera has the HDR feature. What kind of camera is it?

    It is just a Canon Powershot but I pull all the photos that I post onto my blog through a program called Be Funky.
