Gee, these pictures make it look as if we have the place to ourselves, but that wasn't exactly the case, though we did get a free upgrade to The Maya, the slightly-posher sister of The Lindo. It's not quite as pretty, though. It's hard to be as pretty as a place called The Lindo. Most of the restaurants we visited are at The Lindo and as usual, I took my share of pictures of the lobby! I won't repeat the same views, though. Here are some pictures of The Maya:
There's some scary furniture in Maya's entrance. You WILL enjoy this vacation, grrrrrrrrr!
Back at the poolside, though, I'm afraid that some violence did break out--
It appears that the pawns started the melee, and by the end, both knight and bishop were felled in their effort to save the queen. And boy, does she need work--a little plastic surgery should do the trick.
Meanwhile, the cats were hangin' out, relaxing on a table or under our deck chairs,
--that is, when they weren't being chased off by the gangs of coatis outside the lunch buffett.
This year, there were signs on the beach asking people not to feed the coatis OR the cats, and at first, I thought the darling coatis were gone. I'm either naive or stupid. People are feeding the coatis AND the cats, but not on the beach, anymore. Coatis don't care, they like the vegetation on the way to the beach and will hang out on the bridge, as well as right outside the pool area. And the cats never hung out at the beach.
It was a very relaxing week, and I'm still recouperating. It's hard work. For one thing, I'm definitely in guacomole withdrawal. I had either avocados or guacomole at every meal. It's very good with scrambled eggs. With time, though, I shall overcome.
