Yates Family Vacation July 20,2011

By: jade (View Profile)
Date: 8/9/2011

The Villa Kiin had a free breakfast which was served at Buho’s. Its about a 1 ½ block walk. It consisted of coffee, juice, toast and jelly. Since it was a meager offering and my husband had to save his walking for bigger and better things, I went and picked it up and brought it back to our room. I had brought extra large foam cups from Chick-fil-A. They worked great. We would supplement this breakfast with peanut butter, fruit and ham and cheese turn-overs. In the evenings, we would pick up the bakery items from the lady (Valeriama) selling from her car. She is located at the north end of Hildago.

Our kids were not interested in breakfast. We dined outside our room on the patio. It was shaded with a ceiling fan and fantastic view of the hammock garden and beach beyond. We heard a thunder boom but it did not rain.

Our son came out and joined us. My husband noticed a Brown Anoe lizard. It was extending his throat to attract a female. My son thought it was hysterical that I could not seem to get a photo of it while it displayed his “goozle” as my husband called it. After a LONG time – I succeed in getting a shot!

The kids and I walked to Hortensia’s dress shop. She was visiting relatives. Her daughter Raquel helped me. My new bathing suit would not stay fastened and she lent me a safety pin. We stopped by Capt. Tony’s. His daughter said to try back later. A stop at the fresh squeezed juice shop was enjoyed by all. My daughter saw a parrot just outside the shop. We found that it was their pet.

We talked to Sergio at Dopis. He said he would open at 1 P.M. We walked thru the public market on the way to the hotel. Tortillas were being made!

A stroll out to Half Moon beach was next on the agenda.

My son and I got called back in when we ventured beyond the rocks to snorkel. I never noticed life guards here before! My daughter pointed out lots of sea urchins in the water as we were getting out.

My daughter & I walked back into town and ordered burritos to go from Dopis. They were fantastic! I loved his potato salad. There was twice as much for me as my vegan child was afraid it may have animal products in the ingredients. Afterwards was hammock time while my daughter snorkeled.

The kids lost us for a while and ventured into town. They ate at Rooster’s.
We went to Posada del Mar to see Romni. He is a great guy with fabulous drinks. My husband started getting his alcohol on the side – so you see – I was getting 2x the alcohol. The palapa is so well situated to people watch.

Our son had the two Mayan Sacrifices. At first he wanted to drink them simultaneously. We talked him out of that as he might get burned.

Next, we caught Capt. Tony. We planned to go to Contoy the next day. (Always try to plan your Contoy trip early in your vacation – he does not always have enough customers to go or he may be doing a whale shark tour)

We ate Chicken Enchiladas at Fredy’s. They were wonderful! My son enjoyed fish. My vegan child is turning green by eating so much guac!

There were fire dancers in the street.

We went to Miquel’s. He said he would be open the next day but then planned to close until Monday. Miquel was going to help celebrate his father’s 85th birthday. We made a plan to return on Monday. I still had not seen Gregorio!
