Wednesday morning is bright and sunny. There is still a strong wind pushing waves and dark clouds across the bay. We’ve spent too much time sitting and reading so we’re off on a walk today.
We walk to Punta Sur and while wandering around, Denny got to talking with a man who had just arrived Monday for his first visit to the island. Through friends, he got a little apartment at Playa Indios for $350 US for a month. He planned on a two-month stay, a real pleasure talking with him.
We walked back down the road to El Pueblito where we had enchiladas verde ($80;p) and pescado filet in garlic ($90p) with cold XX.
Back on the road we walk the Caribbean Road to a gutted dirt track that lead us back to La Joya. The pool water was warm enough for splashing around.
We decide on Bastos for dinner and after a long wait, watching the free entertainment on the street of locals and cats,
enjoyed ribeye $170p for me
and Brucheta pollo $120p for Denny.
Chips with four types of salsa and cold XX. The bill was $380p and well worth the money for such good food. They create miracles in this little kitchen.
Thursday morning was bright with less wind and small waves in the bay.
Breakfast was delivered to the room: juice, tea and yogurt. What fun to sip juice and enjoy the wonderful view of colorful water, fishing boats and catamarans of snorkelers.
We have to go to town to change money so we start waking. We stopped at Captain Dulce’s museum (no entrance fee)
and can’t believe our eyes: this place is gorgeous! I couldnt believe the steps and landings leading down: craftsmanship at a high level.
A great deal of money was spent on the grounds,
creative sinks for washing up
decking, beach-side bar and palapas and chairs on the beach.
They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The ship “bar” is an impressive bit of whimsy that appears to be on a revolving platform.
Over the years staying at Mar y Sol, we’ve walked by this place many times. It always looked private (older photo)
and now it’s beautifully revamped for the public. This metal sculpture has been photographed many times, heres one more, a fractured photo.
Walking into the colonia, we catch a bus to Central. We wander onto the docks to look at boats and birds.
This boat has come a long way!
The wind of the last week has blown lots of sand into the walkway
and the heavy work of shoveling and wheeling is ongoing
A short wait at the new bank (HSBC wants two forms of ID) we walked and videod our way to Media la Luna, where they are laying a new road. Constant improvement to the island.
around the rocky beach to Avalon
and down Playa Norte.
By the time we reach Sunset Grill,
we’re hot and parched. Not easy slogging through that soft and deep sand! We watch a young woman get wind-surfing lessons. Oh to be young again!
We made our way down Hidalgo for Qubanos for lunch. A much larger place for Vivien with her unbeatable Hungarian Potatoes,
goat cheese-stuffed burger with hand-cut fries, delicious sliders and watermelon water. A great lunch (too much food!) for $290p. I forgot to photograph the burgers and fries, so I’m sorry for the lack of photos for you.
