My little adventures south of the border.

Isla – day whatever

I’m sorry…what day is it again??  Okay, so I’ve been lax in the postings…call me guilty.  I have a confession to make.  I’ve gotten totally into John Grisham books (I know, I’m WAY behind on that), and cannot put them down.  Right now, I’m on “The Firm.”  You’ll notice my Kindle in a lot of pictures.  (Thanks, Sarah.)  But I’m on vacation, right?  And it’s a two-week vacation at that.  I can do what I want, right? 

So, on that note, I’ll post some of the few pics I’ve taken in the last couple of days.  I’ll start with a few that I took with the GoPro camera my son loaned me.  It’s a strange little camera and really tiny.

Image

It takes strange pictures, but they’re kind of cool.  Here’s my beach day with a Margarita.

Image

A boat…

Image

These would be my legs…not some random stranger’s.

Image

I plan on using this more when I go snorkeling or swim with the whale sharks or whatever.

I went for breakfast at Muelle 7 yesterday and it was a good choice.  This was my view. 

Image

I got the Huevos Divorciados and it was delicious.  That means “divorced eggs” for those of you who aren’t familiar…eggs served with green sauce and red sauce.  Even though it may look a tad strange, it was really good.  There was toast in the turquoise basket which helped to sop up the eggs and sauces.  Muy bueno. 

Image

More random water shots…

Image

I think that’s a fish in there…

Image

I noticed there are a lot more musicians on the island on this trip.  There didn’t used to be any, but now they come around on the beach and in restaurants, and ask if they can play for you…for money, of course.  Um…I don’t think so.  Not when I’m busy reading John Grisham.

Dinner last night was at Bally Hoo when we were watching the World Cup between Mexico and the Croatians.  This was the Thai Shrimp.  Excellent.  I have a habit of not being able to finish meals on Isla because of the heat, but I ate all of this.

Image

Once again…that wonderful view.

For breakfast this morning, I went back to the loncherias.  These are authentic Mexican eateries and have been run by local families for years.  You can’t get a better deal than this.

Image

Image

I chose Tacos Tumbras this time. 

Image

I got the Huevos Mexicanos.  I always pay in pesos but it came to about $3.00 in USD…you can’t beat that!  I love the tablecloths in the loncherias.

Image

Two more food shots.  Lunch today at Brisas Grill.  Pizza…too much to eat at one sitting.  Luckily, I have a fridge in my room, so I took half home for leftovers.

Image

And dinner at Rolandi’s.  Meh.  I’ve made better at home.  Not worth the price. 

Image

So, tomorrow is golf cart day…yay!!  I’ve been assigned to take lots of pictures, so it will be a full day.  Stay tuned!
