Here Goes Nothing...Is this Bloody Scotland? April 7th, 2008

Breakfast of huevos Fritos, jamon, tomatoes and OJ.
A little info about John and I and this trip. We dont plan to cook in ALL the time, just never been on vacation for a month yet so are trying to stretch the dollars. Its also our 25 wedding anniversary year and our children have flown the nest. We wanna play!!! Ok back to the report:

We decided to take a jaunt across the island, no more than 1/4 mile over to see if we could find Casa Mar Turquesa, where we will be staying for a week starting Saturday. We did find it and there was a woman there who seemd to want to know what we wanted. Habla engleis? Un poquito, was the reply. She let us look at the room, which is way smaller and more bohemian than the Villa Bonita but has a small pool right outside the sliding glass door of our studio apartment. There is a unit above us, which will apparently be empty...yay!! Wonderful views of the caribbean and a dog who lives there named Charlie...a friendly lab mix whose scarred back looks like he may have tussled with mange at one time.

Walked to the craggy cliffside caribbean sea where there is a hiking trail and many iguanas lolling around in the sun. We spotted many great meditation sights. With good intentions Ill see if I can drag myself from bed which I have been unable to do thus far before 8:30 or so.






Walked up to Punta Sur where we had lunch in the restaurant at a breezy table looking out over the ocean towards Cancun. Had the fish tacos, pescadillos and the chips and guac and of course dos Sols. I do want to pay the $3 per person to walk out and view the ruins of the Mayan Goddess Ixchel but we figure we are down on this end for a while so plenty of time. We climbed the lighthouse for the expansive view

and meandered back home to hang out at the pool with a Cuba Libre (rum and coke) and more reading

before showering and heading next door to Casa Os where everyone loves to be at sunset. We both had grouper dishes, a bottle of chilean wine and a chefs salad to share that was an antipasto kind of veggie mixture and delicioso!!! Dont forget the key lime pie and coffees all for $66US. Tomorrow....Loco Gringos....
