We decided that Saturday would be a day of relaxation and that we would spend the entire day at the beach. For some unknown, crazy reason, we were up for sunrise. Marian and I discovered how incredibly curly our hair gets in humidity. We (Marian and I) left around 8 30 for the rent's room so we could get our wristbands. On our way over, we got stopped by a woman who wouldn't let us through because we didn't have wristbands. We tried to explain that we were on our way to get them. No luck, so we decided to go the back way across the golf course (where we were lost the night before). We got stopped... apparently it was a strictly staff area. With a call to the concierge etc, we managed to convince them we were guests at the resort and that we needed to pick up our wristbands. It worked this time, and when we got back to the woman who wouldn't let us past, she gave us visitor wristbands. We ended up getting our wristbands, and decided that such a stressful morning deserved a total beach day.
We secured some beach chairs, and relaxed in the sun, occasionally taking dips in the pool and ocean. After we had been there all day, just chillin', we decided to head back to the room. It was there we discovered that it was only noon. Well, plenty of time to do something else.
We caught a taxi to Bucerias, and the driver was super helpful. He recommended a little restaurant to us. It was called Meson Bay, and that's exactly where we ended up. Margaritas, delicious food, and good prices. I love Mexico.
After food we wandered around a flea market-y area en Paseo del Beso. After a stressful day at the beach and browsing for souvenirs, we decided we needed some relaxing time at the beach... maybe a couple beers in the mix. We staked out some beach chairs and ordered a couple buckets of beer. Eventually Michelle spied her parents and they came over and joined us.
There were some pigeons that kept flocking around me... it's like they know I have a crazy picture taking compulsion when pigeons are around.
Street food was in our future, and people stopped and got a few tacos. On the way back to the resort, we stopped to go grocery shopping. I really have no idea how much food 6 people can eat, but we ended up with a cart full of groceries. Lots of fruit for a wop, some really cheap vodka... I mean REALLY cheap, instant noodle-y things, pasta, bread etc. After that adventure and a half, we took a couple taxis back to the resort. There may have been some bread eating, lady and the tramp style... but who can say for sure?
As we settled in for the night, some of us realized how much sun we had actually gotten that day. First full day there, and we had the sunburns to prove it.
