We would not be good Alaskans if we did not include photos of moose in our front yard.
A stop for pictures on the way to dinner.
Iĺm sure that we are the first to have our photos taken here.
Another one of our favorite places to eat, (actually I think all the restaurants were our favorites), was Mininoĺs. The margaritas were great not only big but potent. Normally I can drink one before dinner and one with dinner and not be affected too much. Well after the first one I knew I was in trouble. After the second I was wondering if there was a wheelbarrow to get me home with.
The young lady in the middle of the HogGang is Lilu. She is the daughter of the owners of Mininoĺs. She had all of us speaking Spanish. She sat right down at the table with us and taught us all how to order our drinks and meals in Spanish. Our boys wanted her to come home to Alaska with us so she could teach us Spanish. (Notice the size of the margaritas).
This is the family and staff of Mininoĺs. The gentleman next to Lilu is her father. The lady behind her in pink is her mother. Sorry I canĺt remember who the rest of her family is. We went there twice for dinner and stopped in to say hi several times. They made us feel most welcome.
Our next big adventure was to Xcaret. We left Isla early in the morning to catch a bus in Cancun.
We had a good time at Xcaret but there was too much to do in one day. The next time we go to Xcaret it will be at least an overnight trip or we may take a couple of days and go to Tulum and Coba also.
The Indiana Jones boys explore the Mayan ruins at Xcaret.
The show at the end of the evening was worth the trip. We would like to see it again.
We made it back on the next to the last ferry to Isla and the end of another great day. (For some reason we didnĺt take too many photos at Xcaret, could have been because we were rushing around trying to do a lot in a short time.
And on another night outů..
Our boys thought this sign was the greatest.
The Jones Boys seemed to attract the pretty girls.
The Hog Gang with the girl band that plays at the place that gives dance lessons. Sorry I can not remember the name of the bar.
Next time the Jones Gang goes to Contoy with Capt. Tony!
