Day 2 is just beginning: Slice of Life MM Day 11

11454297503_e27946e4ff_hComing to you from my balcony lounge. Our pool-jacuzi just turned on and down below a few early risers are grabbing up precious real estate for their day of sun.  Tuvia is showered and shaved and ready for his coffee and toast scheduled for a 6:30 delivery.  He is slowing to the ways of beach life and I’m hoping that he can continue to enjoy each moment of life here until we are ready to depart.  I doubt it, but I keep asking for updates.

I was hoping to finish this life in the early morning but we were on the move, creating something of a routine.  I was to secure a spot for the morning at the beach, and Tuvia was waiting for news updates on our only American channel, CNN International.  There was a lot more action at the beach and pool early today and it’s really hot.  Really hot!  And I’m not complaining, in fact, in a haze of sparkling wine, I’m hoping to finish this slice and to spend time reading and commenting.  I don’t remember the last Slice I read and really, what am I doing here?

Hey wait, I have been reading, answering emails, swimming, working out, eating, drinking, skinny dipping in our private pool, walking, and watching season 4 of the West Wing as our evening entertainment.

  By Thursday when Tuvia will be starting to climb the walls we will take a break from total beach life for a trip to Tulum, a spot I’ve been hoping to see.

  1. I am listening to the rain that will soon turn to many inches of snow. A trip to the sunshine sounds great–especially if the reality s what your pictures are showing! Enjoy the sunshine and heat!

  2. Thunder is rumbling in my world as I type this. Your world is so appealing! I need you to show me how you can do pictures like this (when I come to NY), but maybe my blog platform doesn’t support that. Whatever, I know you will tutor me, right? What a perfect place, so happy Tuvia is not getting restless yet.

  3. Sounds like a great trip so far, Bonnie! Tulum is gorgeous. That’s where I went for my writing retreat two years ago. The ruins are beautiful and the beach is outstanding. If Tuvia’s up for a little downtime after seeing the ruins, I’d recommend taking a cab to the “real” beach, not just heading down to the one below the ruins. That one is lovely, but always full of people (the people who are visiting the ruins). If you cab it over to the “real” beach, you’ll find yourself on a nearly-empty, totally stunning stretch of that delicious Riviera Maya sand that two of you can stroll undisturbed!
