The Jones Gang, aka hogfamily, 2010 Isla de la Mujeres Adventures # 17.

By:
Date: 9/22/2010

It had been nearly six weeks since Shane had fractured his elbow; it was time to get it checked out to make sure that it was healing correctly.

On recommendation of Dr. Salas we went to Hospital Americano in Cancun and saw Dr. Raul E. Avila an orthopedic and sports medicine specialist.

When we first got to the hospital the duct tape on Shane’s cast caused quite a commotion. I think about half the hospital staff had to see the duct tape on his cast. When I explained that we were from Alaska and we fix everything with duct tape that was met with approving nods and SI! SI!

After x-rays and a very through exam Dr. Avila said that as there was only a few days until six weeks since Shane fractured his arm and that everything checked out well he saw no reason to keep the cast. After the cast was removed and another x-ray and exam was completed Shane got the all clear to not have the cast replaced.

Dr. Avila and all the staff at the hospital were great! Caring, professional, competent, and all with a great sense of humor.

Shane had done really well with the cast. The only help he asked for was to tie his shoe laces. He said that he couldn’t wait until we got to Mexico so that he could wear flip flops. (It only took him about four days until he figured out how to tie the shoelaces himself.)

He was extremely happy to get rid of the cast!

That night we had a “No cast party” at Angelo’s.

Joseph’s favorite food, Lasagna!

The lasagna at Angelo’s is great; it is baked in their wood fired oven.

Several of us ordered from Viva Cuba Libre, (it’s across the street from Angelo’s). Everything was delicious.

Later that night we get a visit from some friends that we made when we were here two years ago. They were teaching the hoglets how to play “hand” games.

We all laughed until our stomachs hurt!


The next day we went to the beach that is just north of Poc-Na Hostel. I think it’s called Half Moon Beach.

It was great. LOTS of shells and sea glass. The snorkeling and tide pooling was good too.

I found out from some locals that were swimming there a few days before we did, when I was checking it out, that it can be dangerous to swim there if you get out too far. We stayed in fairly close nothing over any hoglet’s chest. I did notice that there was a strong current that wanted to take you south and then out. That was only a problem when I ventured out a little too far. A couple of locals that were snorkeling there showed us the, “don’t go passed this”, line.

Can you tell the hogfamily has invaded the beach?
