We got ready SUPER fast and rushed down for a quick quick breakfast. We were on the beach and sunbathing in our chairs by 9:30am. ahhhhhhh RELAXATION! Just what I have been waiting for...
We sat [some napped] for hours- Brad, Kris and Aaron spent A LOT of time in the water! I don't go in the water but had fun taking pictures with my feet wet and drawing pictures in the sand ;) The water babies all said that hands down, Cancun water is be far the BEST water to swim in. The waves, the sand, the salt- they loved it all!
Unfortunately there was cloud cover moving in and by 2 or 3pm we had lost our sun for the day. We continued to relax on the beach & most of our group played several rounds of beach volleyball.
[bump. set. spike!]
I ventured off with Brad and Kris for lunch, where they was a HUGE batch of poolside paella being cooked, it smelled SO good! Brad and Kris saved room to try it- I however... I kept my meal pretty light but did snag a bite or two of the rice, it was tasty! While we were waiting for the paella to cook up- I documented Kris's mission to slamdance some tequila! wahoo!! [p.s. although i woke up feeling awesome, off and on all day, my tummy wasn't agreeing with food and i was having a hard time staying hydrated... ill leave it at that, sparing you the details] ;)
No worries though, it wasn't anything that kept me miserable so I was just fine! Kris and I kind of did our own thing after lunch and after Brad joined the volleyball game. We had a little facetime with Hannah [that was so fun checking in them back home as we sat on the beach!] We then FINALLY went to get my henna ink [i ALWAYS get a temporary henna tattoo while in mexico- makes me feel SO COOL! ok but for real, i just REALLY REALLY like it] haha! This time around I went with a little paw print on my wrist and an 'A' on my right shoulder blade.
Soon enough it was afternoon siesta time and we all got ready for a nice dinner out. Earlier on the beach Kris and I asked a local where to eat. He suggested we take a cab 30 minutes out to La Parrilla. It was really good, but my tummy was not being nice to me- and I was feeling a little light headed/had the spint/feltwarm. After chugging some water I felt better. I chalked it up to dehydration once again! I am the WORST at drinking water on a normal day, so this bad habit of mine while in Mexico was taking a toll on me.
[you cant really tell in this group photo- but we were all SO SO stuffed!]
After an extremely FILLING dinner, we returned back to the hotel for a few lobby bar drinks. Kris was able to snag Chad for a couple of dances and we all spent time mingling with the rest of our group and the lobby crowd before calling it a night. It was ACTUALLY pretty late- we went to be WELL after midnight! Woweee!
[more like 'late night/date night']
In the next day or two I will share the fun we had on our last FULL day in Cancun [insert sad face]!
