Kites, Clouds and Empanadas in PM

Jorge was in Merida all weekend (getting the papers signed for our land in Chabihau), so I found myself with nothing to do on Sunday afternoon. I texted my friend Viri, who said she was planning on going to Puerto Morelos for some beach time and late lunch. Count me in!

Table, chairs and umbrella for $100 pesos! Plus our cooler full of stuff from Oxxo

 

The weather was stunning when we got to the beach…

Divers and a cooler... typical Puerto Morelos behavior

 

But as soon as we sat down, the clouds covered the entire sky and didn’t move for the rest of the day.  It was still beautiful, though!

 

We saw a few families out flying their kites, too! Wish I knew how to do this

 

After the beach, we went to this little place…

 

…for some of these!

 

Overall a great day, even with the chilly weather and looming clouds. Puerto Morelos isn’t my favorite beach in the area (I tend to prefer less kids and less people), but it really is gorgeous and tons of fun!

Have you been to the beach at Puerto Morelos? What did you think?

 

 

What I've Been Up To

So the past few weekends I’ve taken tons of pictures to share with you guys! Things have been pretty busy at work, but I figure I’ll keep ya’ll updated. Here goes…

Last Weekend:

Went to my friend Dama's birthday party at Black Pub Friday night

Saturday: Went to another friend's birthday party, complete with palapa and a taco stand

My "gringas"... flour tortilla, pastor, onion, cilantro and pineapple

Saturday night: Burgers in a friend's backyard (it had very cool design, but I only managed to get a shot of this light-covered palm tree)

 

This Weekend:

On Saturday I bought this... I'll tell you why later!

Sunday afternoon: Puerto Morelos

Saturday night: Carnaval parade in Playa del Carmen (all pictures were either blurry or blocked by pedestrians, but the costumes were great!)

What did you do this weekend?
