While the Cat's Away

semi-overcast 28 °C

Having suffered a week of rain, gales and power outages, Sheila decided it was time to head South to visit her friends Keith and Helen in their winter home in Playa del Carmen Mexico.
She wanted to indulge in activities that would remind her of her carefree, youthful days, so the first place she headed to with Helen was the casino. Here they are with their winnings:

As the sun was shining and the Caribbean looked so inviting Sheila decided to take a quick dip before her date with Ricardo at Coco Bongo.


All these strenuous activities made her very hungry, so off she went with her friends for tacos mariscos.

Helen insisted on not just playing but having a cultural experience, so here they are at the Jardin Botanico Yaaxche about a half an hour from Playa in Puerto Morelos in front of an ancient Mayan ruin.

Sheila was more excited to head back to Playa to do more shopping. This used to be her favourite activity.

This was followed by coffee with her friends and a visit to the World Famous Cremeria in a residential area of Playa.

A wonderful first day was had by all. To be continued……………………………….

You go girl. What fun!

by Diane Cornish

Can't wait to hear what mischief you will be up to next. What happened to Ricardo?

by Sue Fitzwilson

Great to hear that it's all so much fun. Can't wait to exchange the grey skies and rain in London for sun and fun in Mexico in 2 weeks time.
Bonne continuation!

It’s a good job that Sheila has won big at the casino considering how much we have spent in the Galapagos!

by James and Ian

Great fun and a welcome respite from BC weather!
