South End Spin

Our main form of recreation the last four or five days of our June Isla trip was riding in the golf cart.  (Mainly because I was sick and didn't feel like walking anywhere or going to the beach.)  Every afternoon, we'd take a spin out around the south end of the island. And sometimes Craig would find the brake pedal on the cart and I would snap a few photos.  (He doesn't like to stop for pictures.)


The battle of the iguanas -- fake vs. real. 




 Proud Mayan warrior.


 She's ever so tempting with those chi chi's, but please don't climb her.





Rules aren't really made to be broken because it's a steep  fall over that wall.




Does this boat ever move?  I can remember when this was a great spot to take photos.  I should search back through my photos and do a yearly progression of the ruin.


The zip towers at Garrafon.


Look at that fancy umbrella!  These kids were walking with mom in front of Guadalupana.

The Caribbean Village at Punta Sur.

It gets harder every year to take a decent shot of the Shellhouse.


 Man the guns!  I think I've mentioned before we call this the turret house.  I don't know why.



 
Cancun in the distance -- just where I like it!

Great tour of part of Punta Sur! I really want to get a golf cart for a week on our next trip--it would make such a difference in what we do!

Ann, I think it makes a tremendous difference, especially in the hot summer months. It's much cooler riding on a cart than walking in the jungle heat. Sometimes in the past when we've stayed in El Centro, we've never ventured south of the Soggy Peso.

I loved the pictures. The post definitely cheered me this morning with the bright, sharp images. Thanks.
