It's vacation time!
We made it into Cancun, checked into our resort, got a feel for the place, took a trip to the Superama (Mexican Wal-Mart Super Store) for groceries and plotted what we will do this week.
Now that Monday is here, and we don't have to go into work as we usually would, we're really getting that true vacation-y feel.
The weather so far has been ridiculous. Mid-80s and sunny, with pleasant breezes.
Here's a recap of what we've been up to.
The Westin Lagunamar features two big pools, one an infinity pool that blends the view right into the sea in the distance. Swim-up bars, barbecues and all sorts of nooks and seating areas allow us to relax any way we want. We have played games out there and cooked a nice barbecue rib dinner, too.
We hit the beach each morning for a run and quick dip in the surf. The water is warm but very rough. I got spun around after body surfing and found myself facing back out to sea when I was certain I had emerged from the wave toward the shore.
The resort has an area cordoned off for a group of nesting turtles. We took part in one of the final releases of the year, the wildlife officials said.
Thanks for reading.
