"Me mind on fire, me soul on fire, feeling hot hot hot" Who doesn't love that song? It's the the appropriate day here in Playa to be singing that song.
Mother nature is in a great mood. Another sunny hot day with clear skies and the ocean is so calm that even the locals can't believe how serene it is.
We woke startled early this morning by Ava who said "mom we've got to get our towels down to the pool so we get the best loungers". Lounge chair wars; get your towel out on a day bed or you are sweet out of luck chuck. We have a nice day bed with a mattress and cover and the pool server brought us an umbrella. Umbrellas are like gold around here.
I really do enjoy kids overall, honestly but I'm thinking I have some embedded magnet that attracts annoying kids (I'm going for an x-ray when I get back just to see). There are 3 kids in the pool who are being very aggressive & loud with Ava & Rory. They keep trying to escape them but they keep following them (they are like a bad rash you
can't get rid of).
Rory beat one girl in a swimming race fair & square & she yelled really loud that Rory got a "head start". Rory could beat her with only one arm (she takes after her dad obviously). Anyhow who cares right? Rory just swam away. And I bought Ava a little tube floatie and she didn't have it one minute in the pool and one of them tried to take it from her. What's unbelievable is they are totally unsupervised in this huge pool and the oldest is 8. I told them they shouldn't be in the pool unsupervised and they looked like they've never been told not to go in a pool without adult supervision. Do these parents not read the papers on pool drownings? OK daily rant with Sal is complete.
Moving on. Al's dive yesterday. He's becoming a pro! He went out with another couple, and they went to a different spot this time. He dived with no issues at all this time. He saw several stingrays, a few moray eels, puffer fish (which was realllly cool), crabs, and schools of tropical fish and there hundreds and hundreds, some very large too.
He's totally amazed about the coral. The instructor took him near this "fuzzy looking or feathery" spirally thing. And when she got close it closed right up instantly. We obviously need to find out what this thing was. Anyone looking to buy Al a birthday or Christmas gift, just get him a book on types of fish! I am so happy Al has discovered a new hobby instead of hot wiring cars at night, far too dangerous (hahaha)
Well the blue pool is calling me. I am going to take Ava's tube in with me. Let some kid try and take it from me 😊
"Party people all around me, feeling hot hot hot"...
