i am going to dive right into tuesday’s recap from my vacation to playa del carmen.
we were planning to go to see some old pyramids, but we decided to be lazy and hang out at the beach all day instead.
it was cloudy and not too hot. just the way i like it. there were actually some gnarly storm clouds and it looked like it would rain, but it didn’t. not even a drop.
i even got in the ocean.. the water wasn’t even cold! but the waves were crashing, big time, so it was hard to fight them and try not to go under.
i had to hold on to my sunglasses, because the last time i was in the ocean, my sunglasses were wooshed away from my face. i am sure a mermaid is rocking them on her face right now, actually.
eventually, our group moved to the pool for some football passing and lounging. i caught the football every time! i deserve a medal. i usually suck so bad at sports of any kind.
he’s cute. i’ll keep him.
it goes without saying that we ate several ice cream cones on tuesday. and every day, for that matter.
it was a ben & jerry’s cart.. but not ben & jerry’s ice cream. shucks.
still, it was deeelicious.
when we were walking back to our room, guess what we saw??
A BAAABY MONKEY!
thank goodness marshall had a banana in his pocket! i told you guys, he went everywhere with a banana at all times in case we saw a monkey.
prepare for more monkey photos in 3, 2, 1…
i love him!
we had dinner reservations at the japanese restaurant at the resort but they weren’t until 9 PM, so marshall and i grabbed a few tacos to split around 6 PM. they was just from a little street stand.
these were probably the BEST tacos we had the whole time!
we bought this cherry blossom artwork. the artist is in the photo holding the painting we purchased.
once back at the hotel, we met everyone for our late dinner. teppanyaki style.
miso soup to start~
shrimp, chicken & steak~
tempura bananas & ice cream for dessert~
see you next time for more tacos, monkeys, sunshine and ice cream. i promise, i will be back to regular posting soon.. so sorry if you are over the mexico recaps. i need to do them for myself.. i have a bad memory!
1. if you have the option of both, do you pick beach or pool? we spent most of our time at the beach and only went to the pool this one day. have to take advantage of the beach when it is available! plus i like salt water better than chlorinated water.
2. do you like teppanyaki? or have you never had it? love it. especially when our chef can do cool tricks with knives. i get a kick out of that.
