It was the last full day with the kids.
Our son got us up early. After breakfast, I bought more pitaya fruit and the makings for guacamole. I finally snorkeled around the Avalon rocks. There had been so many tourists; I had only been snorkeling around the rocks on “my” side of the beach. We saw a tiny cute black and yellow fish darting in around the rocks. We met Joe and Debbie from Smithfield, VA. What a fun couple!
In town, my daughter & I finally saw Sergio with the batiks. I had my drink and my daughter’s at Miquel’s. I gave him the pitaya fruit. We walked to Dopis and picked up more burritos for lunch.
After lunch, I fell asleep on the raft. Bliss! We hung out in the water all day. Our daughter found a cushion star fish and then we found some sea stars. My daughter let one crawl over her hair!
She found a green crab. It was small.
We hated to leave. It is so hard to leave all this glory behind! At least, my daughter had some great finds on her last snorkel.
The guys headed into town. We girls shopped a little. We all met at Miquel’s. He treated us like royalty. He is going to open a patio behind his kitchen. We got to dine on the new patio. It was an event. Miguel had a fan going and the patio was very pleasant. He brought out guacamole as starter. We had 3 Moonlight specials. Lobster, fish, shrimp, rice, baked potato, salad and bread all served on a huge platter with lemon halves. It was truly fantastic.
Our son left Miquel’s before his 2 French girls showed up. Hazel and Sarah are in the hotel business and know multiple languages. They gave up on our son and went to Coconuts. He caught up with them eventually.
Gregorio came and sang with his magnificent voice. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful time with family and our Isla friends.
Seeing my husband smile so much during our meals together warmed my heart. The kids never had a cross word. They were great travel companions. Our daughter will be 30 this year and our son is 22. It is the first time we all have vacationed together with them being adults. Even though they are adults, we still did worry. We didn’t try to get them up for meals or force them to spend all their time with us. We gave them free reign to do as they wished. We tried to make sure they had a great time. And they did. I thank God for this wonderful experience!
