High winds again closed down the port for diving today. We spent the morning hanging out, eating, and taking photos. We’ll pack up the dive gear this afternoon, then go have drinks at a local bar. Yeah, I’m handling it well.
So today a Norte blew in, and closed the port. Rather than dwell on the fact that I’m loosing a day of diving (and we only have one day left to dive) we decided to make the most of it and head over the East side of the island for the day. The house we are staying in has some really nice people that we met recently, so 5 of us squeezed into our little rental car, and headed to the east side for adventure.
Mark knew of a little place that made tortas on the South end of the island. We headed there first and I ate one of the most amazing things I’ve ever had. I have no idea what it was, but trust me it was good stuff. The second stop was a little place where they make drinks in real live coconuts. Wow, that was cool, and not as cheesy-touristy as I expected. Then we found a spot on a remote beach and hung out for a few hours until the wind started kicking up sand. Further up was another bar where we drank margaritas out of clay pots and enjoyed the view of “Naked Beach” (no one was on it, so it was naked…. Get it?)
I played with my camera in the afternoon finding things to shoot. Mexico has great textures and colors.
Beth and I headed to Le Chef for dinner, then walked around the square for a bit. The wind is still REALLY strong. I’m not sure if the port will be open or closed tomorrow. Since we fly on Monday tomorrow is our last opportunity to dive. Hopefully things calm down tonight.
Last night we made a stop at our favorite bar in Cozumel, Wet Wendy’s. They make their own tequila and it’s one of my favorite things, period. After 7 shots of their homemade tequila our new friend Leka informed me that they also make a almond flavored tequila as well. It only took me 3 shots of that one to figure out how much I like it as well. after 10 shots, they thought I needed a break so they made me a Mojito.
We did a little negotiating with the owners, and will be coming home with 13 bottles of their homemade tequila. Feel free to drop by and try some, you’ll see why we love it. =)
