Later we headed down to the beach to lounge and relax. It was nice to watch the waves and listen to Loren read to me. We are continuing to enjoy our book "All the Trouble In the World" by P.J. O'Rourke. Loren is such a good reader. I also took advantage of some of that time to sketch. Though I did not get too far in that project however.
We rode our first public bus since we arrived here and it took a little while to get my "sea legs" back. We missed our stop and had to walk back to the restaurant. It was fun to sit and chat and eat. Loren really likes HardRock Cafe and we enjoyed the music and the ambience. The restaurant is located in the shopping and club area of the hotel zone of Cancun. We were laughing at the random people walking around in Mexican versions of Jim Carrey's The Mask costume accosting passers by to get them to take photos and go to Club Coco Bongo which advertised an atmosphere combining, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Spider Man. We stopped at the Haagen Daas ice cream shop for dessert. I have never gone to an ice cream shop that had a waiter in the States before. This one did however, we got to select our ice cream dessert from a menu and were even given a selection of coffee or water as accompaniment. What we ordered was divine, banana caramel crepes! I am inclined to agree as Loren once said the best bananas are in Mexico.
