Isla Mujeres Trip Report-Day 9 (Part 2)

June18

day921

It has been months since I wrote part one of this Day 9 Trip Report and what have I been busy with? We’ve lived through the most severe winter on the Canadian prairies in over a century; we’ve successfully renovated and sold my mother’s home of 58 years; we have opened up our little beach house for another season and the Wee One continues to grow and delight us.  We have already booked our time on Isla in 2015 and so I thought that it was high time to focus on getting my 2014 reports completed. We’ll see how this goes.

From Part 1: When our family is with us, we spend a lot of time in Centro but as soon as they depart, we find ourselves drawn to the Colonias for long walks through the neighbourhoods.  On this day, we actually walked into Colonias twice-once to reacquaint ourselves with the exact locale of Deysi & Raul’s and the next time to actually dine there.

Overlooking one of the Salinas.

day923

Gorgeous blossoms were everywhere.

day924

I love the blue paint used on Isla-doors and windows duplicate the colour of the sea.

day925

There are explosions of colour everywhere, here at a local produce vendor.

day926

The painting of this stucco must have been pain-staking work.

day928

There is one specific place in the Colonias where you can see the sea to the west with Cancun in the distance

while the Atlantic is just a glance to the east.

This is the ocean view just steps away from some of the Colonia’s homes.

More blossoms and more bright blue paint.  I can’t get enough of either.

A tribute to motherhood in the zocolo.

We walked back to our “home” on the airport strip, had a lunch of left overs, read and rested in the hammocks and then lapped up the exquisite sunset before venturing back to the Colonias again.

day9219

Our long-awaited destination.

day9220

The view from our table perch at this wonderful family restaurant.

We started with chicken tortilla soup.

day9223

Delicious sautéed veggies with the meat and cheese in the fajitas.

day9224

You could literally make a meal of the fixings.

Adorned with pico de gallo and one of many delicious sauces.
