Cancun Week 2 - Jan 20 - 26

Sunday, Jan 20 another beatiful sunny day, or so we thought.  Didn't go out for our morning walk but were going to go to the 9:00 English mass. Don't know if this is new but it was the first time I noticed purse holders in the pews.

We were out on the beach by 11:00 at the latest and took the tube with us and into the water.

It was amazing how warm the water felt and it was so much fun!  After we got out the clouds started to roll in and at 3:30 we finally lifted our bodies out of our lounge chairs on the beach (I was lying under my towel all afternoon to stay warm) and went up to Aviento for lunch and of course to take advantage of the 2-1 Happy Hour drink special.  We got the same sandwich as the first day and had nice poolside seats.

Then the sun came out again and it felt so-o-o-o good !!!

After eating we went back in the ocean again and again it was so much fun.  I didn't take the tube this time and just bobbed in the waves.

Monday, Jan 21 This was the most perfect weather day.  We took a walk and finally walked all the way to the Hyatt and once again Larry got a blister on his foot but not as bad as the last time we were here.
We spent the day on the beach enjoying the great weather for the whole day.  Around 5:00 pm we went to Fish Fratanga for dinner and got the same delicious seafood meal when we were here in 2011.

Tuesday, Jan 22 We thought today would be as nice as yesterday.  We went to the beach around 10:00 and practically as soon as we got there the clouds came.  We stayed until around 1:00 and then went to have lunch.  From our room I saw some shadows of people walking on the beach so we went back down but had about 10 minutes of total sun but nevertheless stayed down till around 4:00 when we went back to our room to finish our margaritas that were in the freezer.
We had some snacks and then went to La Europa for another bottle of Tequila for the rest of the week.
Reading through this you might get the impression that we're alcoholics, but it's rare that we have more than one drink a day, normally wine, but on vacation we have location appropriate beverages.  When we came back our dinner was a little less spectacular than the previous night.

Wednesday, Jan 23 We got our exercise today by walking around all the floors of the different villas and doing the stairs in between the flights.  The weather once again was far from perfect and we stayed in most of the day.  We did get out for another game of miniature golf amidst some little raindrops and this time Larry beat me.

Thursday, Jan 24 So far the excitement for today, in addition to watching the sun almost break through the clouds and then having a downpour instead was to have two men come and do the weekly/monthly?? bug spraying in our villa.
Finally went out to the pool hoping for the sun to come out and stay out.  Good thing Larry was on cloud patrol because we got inside the building just as the sky let loose again.

Next time the rain stops we have to go across the street to La Isla and Starbucks for another bag of coffee then to the local grocery store for milk and bananas.
