Recently we were on the island with newbies. They wanted to schedule every day. I think they had a hard time grasping our way of life on Isla.
After years of traveling to the island, we do a lot of nothing. We wake up and let the day go as it goes.
If it's sunny, we might go to the beach. Along the way, we stop off at our favorite coffee shop or the juice tienda on Juarez.
We spend a few hours soaking in the saltwater and relaxing in the shade.
Once we've had enough sun, we stroll back through El Centro. I take photographs and Craig hangs back in the shade. This dog also takes the day as it goes, rarely moving from his favorite spot. I swear I snap the same photo of him every year.
We also enjoy watching people, just like our little friend here. If we're feeling salty and itchy, we cab back to the room to wash off before walking to someplace close for a late lunch.
The Loaded Nachos at Barlito is one of our favorites!
Or -- we might split the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Sweet Potato Fries at the Soggy Peso.
If it's not raining or too hot, we stroll back home in a weak attempt to burn calories, snapping more pictures along the route.
Love these side by side doors in the colonias.
I wave to the guys cooking lunch at Kash Keken.
Locals line up at Tacqueria AA.
The rush is gone at the local tortilleria.
I'm guessing this souped up Bug belongs to Green Verde's Oscar?
We walk around our favorite little sidewalk dog along the way. He's also been in the same spot for years. At this distance he's fine, but I once spoke to him and he greeted me with a snarl. Turistas!
Back home, we lounge in the palapa by the pool listening to the waves and watching iguanas and boats pass.
After a dip in the pool and a nap, we ponder dinner. Where'd the day go?
It goes as it goes.
