We fly back to Mexico City on Thursday morning, for the day, departing on Friday for Vancouver at the ungodly hour of 0600 …. really, what a crazy time to depart!! That destroys holiday mode right there!
It is time to be saying good bye to the beach. We have had such a lovely relaxing time in the warmth. Hammocks, sun, sand, and walking the beach.
Yesterday we went to La Ventanilla (means the window), which is evidenced by the large rock formation in the water – with literally a window at the top of it.
For about an hour and a half we took a tour through the mangrove lagoon, watching birds (a nod to Wilson).
Iguanas are plentiful … (one lucky guy gets to mate with about 25-30 women in his harem) I am sure they have another word for it when relating to a pack or tribe or iguanas … and the ever present crocodiles.
We did think Wilson might sign up for another specific bird watching tour but he got his fill (might have had something to do with the bird watching tour being early in the morning…..) We chose to go on the tour after 4:00, as once the day gets cooler, the animals and birds are more active. As the sun set the lagoon literally came alive with birdsong ….it was incredible.
As we reached the main beach area again, they were about to release some turtles – we were each able to take one and release it – so so so cool. Those little fellows just get their little flappers going like mad the moment they sense the ocean near. Put them down, and off they go. Pretty amazing to watch them disappear into the ocean, then return on a wave, then go again.
Our last night we took a collectivo truck to Zipolite -walked the beach as the sun was setting (while trying to ignore the nude males), and had a farewell margarita…. okay the boys had a beer ….
A final meal at La Providencia – amazing place if you are ever in Zipolite, and we are now home to pack up whilst Wilson and Grant have a final crib battle. .. .. .. to be continued. (in Vernon?) What else do people do in the snow? It was in the 30’s today, and right now, 8:30 at night, it is 26 …. really, do we have to come home???
