A little bit of this and that…
I read three books while I was there. I picked this one up at Almendros…
Crazy, huh?!? I figure it was a sign that I was meant to move to Isla. But then again, I would use anything to serve as a sign that I need to move to Isla…like, “The sun rose today…it must mean I need to move to Isla!” Haha!
This is kind of a random post on different things. I took a total of 869 photos while I was there, so it’s been a job of organizing them for my blog. One of the things I always notice when I’m walking around the island is how so many of the buildings change color from one trip to the next. It’s like a never-ending kaleidascope of colors.
Here’s the new big palapa at Buho’s…very nice for if it rains!
I also tried this place which is on Medina across from Minino’s.
I had the chicken fajitas which were very good. I felt sorry for the businesses on this side of the street because of the construction. I’m sure no one would want to sit at the outside tables with all the dust and construction noise. I would definitely go back, though.
I went through La Luna just to check it out. I’ve never been there, but they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I looked at a menu, but they seemed expensive compared to other options on the island.
Nice colors, but the outside section seemed kind of worn. I can imagine how hard the salty sea air would be destructive on furniture. It was kind of cool and breezy the whole week I was there, so I never saw anyone here.
And I walked by the Privilege Aluxes and the Cafe del Mar Beach Club across the street many times during the week and saw maybe a couple of people there the whole time. Maybe they get a later crowd, but I honestly don’t know how that place stays open.
The little bar on the pier in front of Sergio’s is really cute, but they never served anything from there while I was on the beach. People used it for a good photo op sitting on the swinging bar seats, though.
I took a picture of this a year ago…it’s a place for rent on Hidalgo.
Well, it’s still for rent and the blue paint has faded a bit. I can understand why it’s still for rent…I don’t think there’s a roof over the place. If you look above the crack in the door, you can see sky. I’m thinking they might have to do a little remodeling to rent it, ya’ think? But there IS a nice bench and a street lamp the city put in front, though. And I’m glad to see they made use of the white bucket that was there before…haha!
Which you can still see on the shore…
