Here Goes Nothing...or Everything! April 4th

Slept hard just like all my first nights on the island. Woke up to sunshine and decided to partake of the complimentary continental breakfast here at Bucanero, which consisted of, three pieces of toast, cafecon leche,(coffee with milk), jam and fresh squeezed OJ. Hit the spot! Took off for a walk to re-explore and found the Malecon along the Caribbean to be almost finished. John has decided it will be a nice place to go for a run when we are back on this side of the island in two weeks. Johns sister will be joining us in the Bungalows at Playa Media Luna on the 23rd and stay through our stay a Villa Adioso when Johns mom will be joining us.

At the end of the malecon we turned toward the Cancun side and decided to try to find the Navy store. Had to ask for la tienda at the gate and were directed on how to get there. Among other supplies John bought his ever-present quart of Sol and when asked they kindly open the bottle but when were half way down the street we found out the cashier had stiffed us $20 pesos on the change...John was beside himself until he figured out that he had paid a couple of bucks for a good lesson-count change EVERY TIME!

Wandered through the neighborhood down Juarez and found La Lomita and Poc Chuc where we want to eat later. Also found Capt. Tonys and asked the guy inside who I later learned was El Capitan himself, about Contoy-he said just show up at 8:45 any day. He explained that he did not go out today since the water was too choppy. Seems like all the info about him is true. Very nice guy.

Wandered across the street and bought a beach toalla (towel) for $10 and meandered toward the beach by way of the Ixchel Beach Hotel where we greeted Pablo from the last two times we stayed there. He said he was doing well and that maybe we could have a couple of beers in town some night.
After a small break at the hotel, we headed back up to Poc Chuc for great food! Three pork tacos, 3 chicken tacos, sopa de lima and 2 Leons for $125 pesos!! Not really sure what we did this night...must have been having so much fun that I didnt write. Oh well, tomorrow is moving day down to Villa Isla Bonita on the Cancun side of the southern part of the island. Its pretty much right next to Casa Os.
