My little adventures south of the border.

Isla – dia cinco

Not a long post this time.  I didn’t feel like doing much today, so it was a reading day.  I’ll start with last night’s dinner at Bally Hoo.  I love sitting there in the evening because of the breeze and it’s a nice place to work on my blog.  The fish tacos were good…they make their slaw like me…oil and vinegar with no mayo.

Image

It’s also an entertaining place to sit because of all the activity.  A boat came back with some lucky fishermen.

Image

And this young woman threw a net into the water and pulled it back up with a bunch of little fish, much to the enjoyment of the little boy with her.  They put them into a bucket of water…guess they’re using them for bait.

Image

A night shot of the boats.  Doesn’t that look like a cat in the far boat?

Image

Here are just some random shots.  I thought about renting this on my golf cart day, but think I’ll pass.

Image

Massages on the beach…not for me, though.

Image

Here’s the front of JAX.  They really are doing a redecorating job on it…not nearly as colorful as it used to be.  And they painted the sculpture gold since I was last there.

Image

Here’s the Privilege Aluxes…a newer hotel on the island.  I stayed their once because I got a great deal.  The rooms really are nice and comfortable, but you pay for it.  The restaurant had a lot to be desired when I stayed there.  Hopefully, they’ve improved, but I don’t think I’d bother to go there again.  I never see anyone eating there.

Pretty Oleanders…

Colorful house…

A peek into the cemetery…

Image

Pretty Bougainvillea…

Today’s breakfast at Compadre’s.  (Didn’t this use to be Bucanero’s?  It’s right across from Rolandi’s.)

Image

Well, I found out where all the seaweed is.  It’s all at the far end of Playa Norte.  Ugh…it was pretty smelly, too.

Image

Here I’m standing at the corner of what used to be Zazil Ha.  (Not sure what it is now.)  When I first came to Isla back in 2006, the water was all the way up to this corner.  It’s strange how the beach can change so drastically.

Image

Here I am in the water looking back at where I was standing in the last picture.

Image

As you walk up Playa Norte, the seaweed gradually disappears and you’re left with the beautiful views of the sea.

Image

Image

Are these barnacles??

Image

I washed out some clothes this evening and didn’t feel like going out for dinner so I just got a hamburger at Bobo’s Grill.

Image

It was pretty darn good!  Good prices, too!

  1. Deb, the beach had more seaweed than that down by Tarzan’s for 5 or 6 days, and it took days for them to haul it away at the Mia. Fenix also was horrible. It’s strange because city workers clean some areas and not others. I’m really enjoying your posts!

  2. Beck, when I got there, there wasn’t any by Tarzan’s, so I guess they got it all removed….except for the beach across from MIA. Did you happen to notice if there was a guard at MIA? I don’t think I saw one.
