Beach Day!

Now that we're staying in town

I vow to spend time every day possible at the beach!

The weather here right now is mucho calor -- perhaps slightly hotter than the last time we were here in April.  So that makes the water just right!  Warm enough for me to get in and enjoy floating.

It rained a little overnight, but every day we've been here has been gloriously sunny.

We've been setting up camp back under the palms in the area at the west end of Maria del Mar, then moving east toward the Avalon Cove so Craig can snorkel.

Basket Man carries a heavy load, so he sets them down across from Buho's in the afternoon while he takes a break.

This lady never approaches since she sees no possibility of braiding my short hair.

Some people prefer loungers in the sun.  The guy from Maria del Mar rents these for 50 pesos per piece (loungers and umbrellas).

Mr Tuggui tugging his cart.  These guys work so hard, pushing these carts all the way to town from the colonias each morning before pulling them through the sand on Playa Norte.

One of the vendors with Guatemalan handicrafts.

Pareos anyone?

This guy walks a Chow in the afternoons.  That fur coat looks hot!

And speaking of dogs, Javi became a fast friend when I sat my beach chair across from the Avalon.  Or was your name Tamale?  His owner kept calling him to come in the water for a swim lesson, but I don't think he's a water dog.

Let's hope everyday until Monday's a great beach day!
