A Beautiful Day in Puerto Morelos

A Gorgeous Couple of Days

Yesterday we loaded up into two cabs and headed to a quirky tourist place called Jungle Spa. I ate some of the best Mexican food ever, handmade tortillas rice, beans and potatos stewed with poblanos chile. We were witness to a little folk dancing that reminded all of us of the maypole at Becca and Ben’s. These women did a much better job that the 50 or so of us in Montana, but just as soon as they invited audience participation the maypole started looking a lot more knotted and familiar.

My mom summed it up best in her TripAdvisor review:

We were very lucky to experience the Sunday Market, a nice array of traditional Mayan food, dancing and a massage unlike any that we have had, all in one day! If you are looking for a generic run of the mill spa then go somewhere else. This is truly a unique experience. You will be surrounded by a gentle breeze and the sounds of the Jungle.

We’ve settled in to our comfortable little Casita Blanca on the beach. Bannack loves the sea. He stands at the patio door, forehead against the screen, staring out at the water. He convinced my dad to take a swim and they were out in the salt for at least 20 minutes swimming laps. Funny how well a baby sleeps after playing in wind and waves under a wide Caribbean sunset.

    Sara and Colleen (after a few margaritas) are running down to the beach bar(for a few more magaritas) and will toast you (with said margaritas) from Mexico. Salud!

  3. uncle dan,

    Great clip! I’m glad we didn’t watch as Sara gets T-Boned while making a left turn (from the right side) in front of Chris on bikes. YIKES….careful out there.
    Kev, I was starting to have flashbacks of dancin’ at the MAYPOLE parties. Thanks. I have to rest nowwwwowwww cooolll breeze.aaaggghhhh

    • Dan, I thought the very same thing watching the video. It wasn’t as bad as it looks though, we knew we were turning and I edited out the part where she signaled.

      Maypole party sounds about right. Your brother thinks you would have liked the massage, “they reach right in and touch your second heart.”

      Whatever that means.

  4. Sara,

    Wow! It is totally awesome when your vacation life gets made into a music video each day! Thanks Kev!
