It was getting light. I grabbed my camera and headed for the rooftop for the 1st sunrise of the year. And blessed that I was that I was in Isla to see it!

As soon as I got to the stairs I heard the THUMP THUMP THUMP music. Oh my! I think it’s the new bar. I returned to the room and prepared to walk out to the beach.
I then learned the music was coming from el Centro!
I walked to the Carribean side to get pictures.

It was cloudy on the horizon. I walked closer and closer to town. What! There were a couple hundred people still dancing. There was never a slow song. I dropped into Miguel’s. His whole family was there and they were open. Jose was passed out though. I walked down Hildago to find a restaurant serving breakfast. Good, Amigo’s was open.
I returned to the room and got my husband up. We headed for town. We saw Bistro Francais was open and ate there. Amigos was packed. Back at our room, I could not resist the urge to get in the water. To be in the gorgeous waters of Isla on New Year’s Day was just too much of a lure for me. My husband was not fond of me pushing it to the last minute.
OMG, I walked out into the cool water and got to the point where it was so deep I had to swim to the sandbar. I stood there for as long as I could, soaking in the colors, smells, sights and feeling of the water. I thanked God for my blessings and prayed for those I loved. I thanked Him for the beauty of our world.
I asked my husband to hang the bedspread out on the balcony when it was time for me to return. I made it back just as he was going to do so. I put my wet bathing suit in a plastic bag and shoved it into my carry-on. We quickly pulled it together and called a taxi. Of course, as usual, we missed the ferry just as we arrived. No problem. We caught the next one. I sat on the top and watched Isla fade from sight. I tried to hold on to every moment. We waited 5 minutes for Best Day. They were on schedule as usual. We loved talking to the other Best Day passengers about our stay. None of them had been to Isla. Maybe they’ll go next time!
Note: At the Cancun airport, the singers at the Christmas tree were neat but the food prices were ridiculous. We brought a snack from Isla but we still had to buy a $5 US coke.
