Everything looks fresh after the latest squall!
About halfway down Medina, my camera started having a tropical tantrum. When I try to use the zoom, it zooms all the way out and then shuts down. And sometimes, when I turn the camera on, it immediately zooms out and shuts off. Dang it!!! If only I'd brought a backup. I'd already replaced the batteries yesterday, but I tried that again. I managed to get it to work intermittently by removing the batteries, wiping the connections, and putting them back in. I'm fairly certain it has to do with the high humidity, but I can't have a camera that won't take photos on Isla! I think the camera will be returned when I get home!
Craig pointed out that there's something inherently wrong with this compass marker in the sidewalk. The north symbol is pointing towards the west?
We headed past the Navy base and turned onto the malecon. This must be the dog that likes treats, but I had no idea he stuck his head through the star to get them!
I've been so sore and I can't figure out why. It hit me when I took this photo of Craig. Duhhhh! I've been squatting, bending down, looking down, doing lunges, etc.... But it's been worth it. Look at this morning's bootie. I was so excited to find so many different colors, including all the blues and a lavendar piece!
At this rate, I'm going to need volunteers to help me transport it home!
We then headed down to the Avalon cove to try some snorkeling. I never donned my mask, but Craig said he saw some yellow striped fish by the rocks on the Avalon side, but it was rough getting over there. We spent another hour in front of Ixchel swimming and snorkeling, then checked out the Sunset Grill's prices for lunch. Their special is 15% off their regular prices, but I thought the regular prices were a little high! 150 pesos for shrimp tacos? Mocambo's shrimp tacos are 55 pesos and they are great! So we headed down to Picus for lunch where 3 seafood tacos are 50 pesos. We had a great time watching the fishermen bring in their catch and fold up the nets.
I tried to talk Craig into sticking his head into the menu board at Poc Chuc, but he wouldn't go for it!
I ordered a shrimp cocktail and it was very good!
Down the street, we saw Ricardo at Mocambo's and apologized for not eating there three days in a row. But we'll be back! We headed on to the Navy base to pick up some Halloween candy and a large bottle of tequila for Michael. They had the big blue bottle of Corralejo that he likes for less than 190 pesos. That's a deal!
Back at the room, we relaxed for an hour and then watched the sunset. Another day in paradise!
