Hot Hot and Hotter
We have really noticed a difference in the weather in the last week or so - it has become much more humid and the temperatures are rising steadily. It is warmer than normal for this time of the year - the locals have told us this is pay-back for the lovely winter that they had this year. Too funny - we suffer with the cold in the winter and they suffer from the heat in the summer. We are finding that we are starting to spend more time in the water.
We often go to the pool at the top of the Freeman hotel and will more than likely visit a few more hotel pools in the next 3 weeks. We have been welcomed with open arms - it`s pretty quiet around here right now.
We`ve also started to spend more time at the beach. The wonderful thing about Maz is the number of beaches - Stone Island, Playa Norta, Playa Bruja, Cerritos and of course, the beach along the Golden Zone.
Our friends, Brenda and Wayne, have an apartment across the street from the beach at the north end of the Golden Zone and we joined them yesterday for a beach day. We brought our own chairs and refreshments, although we did buy some fruit from a vendor. Wayne and Brenda have an umbrella, something we`ll definitely have for next year.
By the way, I have no idea what on earth they were pointing at - Superman maybe, or it could have been the guy with the fruit!
