The Other Side of Cancun

Not the seedy underbelly of crime and corruption silly, the other side of Cancun for beach day numero dos. Max woke up chanting repeatedly "go do da beach, go do da beach, go do da beach" so we did. Hey, the kid's cute, I can't resist that request no matter how much cleaning up I should be doing around the house. Oh the sacrifices I make as a mother, forced to go to the beach on a hot sunny day.

We took the bus to Playa Marlin on the east side of Cancun island. We were there just a few weeks ago you might recall. I like this beach because there are stores, food and bathrooms in Plaza Kukulkan and you can actually sit under the cement wall of Villas Marlin for some shade. I also like it because it's got a schizoid personality, this beach changes, you never know what you are going to see.

Here's how the sea looked on December 2, 2007....



Here is how it looked today, December 21, 2007 from the same spot


I love all the forms the Caribbean Sea takes, crashing, hardcore, bash your head in waves and the lapping at the feet little kissy waves. She (the sea) is a cure-all, a refresher, a re-energizer, a purifier, a punisher, and nurturer. I really really cannot imagine not being near enough to her to swim in her whenever I need to or want to. I wish I could explain how strong this feeling is to Hubby, it's really a form of love and I would be heartbroken to leave.

Oh the sacrifices... I would say "I hear you"... but I don't have a cute kid that twists my arm to avoid chores and go to the beach... I am still avoiding chores...
...about the Caribbean... it seems you have found a haven and a new home. That is something I've been reflecting about reading yours and other blogs (now for more than a year) what is "home"? and if we find it "do we have to leave it eventually?"
