Day 3

One never tires of getting up early just to watch the sunrise…..especially if this one is over the Caribbean Sea!  Doesn't this makes you dream!   Sighhhh!    So you guessed it! 

This morning, Michel and I were walking along the shore doing just that.  Watching the sunrise!    The turquoise colored sea was calm and the sky was turning on fire as the palm trees waved their gigantic leaves at us from the soft warm breeze of the wind.   I could stand here and watch this every morning and never get tired of it I told Michel!

Breakfast was eaten in the same area as yesterday followed by us walking around the entire hotel grounds once more.    However this morning, a visit was paid to the hotel’s exterior entertainment theatre where we passed our time taking pictures of several of their gigantic Mayan statues.   

And then came the time to relax along the shore and soak in the vistas right in front of us…..the Caribbean Sea!    It was quite warm and inviting as we soaked and swam into it just to appease the heat of the sun because it was hot!   Even though we stayed in the shade most of the time, it was obvious that our skin was burning anyway.  Michel was redder by the hour and I was starting as well.  At least we didn’t look as much as ghosts anymore!   Ha, ha, ha!

The cliffs at the end of the hotel’s private beach were climbed all over again where little crabs were seen hiding in holes.   It was a lot more private and secluded since nobody from the hotel came here, except us of course!    As for the views, they were amazing…..paradise on earth kind of place! 

We decided to adventure further along the edge of the rocky cliffs to see where this would lead us.  Being barefoot, I had to be careful since the rocks weren’t that smooth and had rough edges.  Several Mexican families were passed next to where they were enjoying themselves in this secluded area by jumping into the sea below.   They weren’t bothered by our presences. 

At the end of the rocks, there was a pier where merchants sold souvenirs and beach clothing.  I managed to buy a small black hat with "Cancun" written on it.    Next to this, little cafes and restaurants were set up where locals and tourists ate and drank.  Since nothing else worth seeing was around, we slowly made our way back to our beach. 

This evening, we ate at the Asian specialty restaurant where I had Chinese food.   It came complete with chop sticks in which I had trouble eating with.    After several attempts, the lovable fork was returned to!    At least I can say that I tried!    Ha, ha, ha. 

Right after dinner, we made our way to the exterior entertainment theatre where a fantastic Mexican dance show was watched for a good hour or so!    It was quite entertaining and guests of the hotel were asked to participate.   Hola!
