our last day
19.03.2014 - 19.03.2014 31 °C
It's our last full day and it's a scorcher, not a cloud in the sky. The beach is understandably busy and there are some great waves coming in. We spend most of the morning getting sand and sea water in every orifice. Every time I put my head down a waterfall of sea water pours out of my nose, cool! A couple of the beach hawkers have appeared with two white buckets with fish in. They are accompanied by four pelicans. They seem to be parading them up and down the beach for people to take pictures of and, of course, they expect a few pesos for their trouble. After lunch at the pool bar restaurant and a cooling dip in the pool we return to the beach. We spend all afternoon at the beach then return to the pool area. The entertainment team are in full swing with a few poolside games that are quite funny to watch. It's only when we return to our room and look in the mirror that we realise we haven't been very good with our 'sun management' today. Burnt knees, ankles and of course I've got the Turner holiday trade mark 'T'. A stripe across my forehead and also down my nose, a perfect bright red 'T' for Turner on my face - excellent! We've avoided it all week and left it to the last day to burn to a crisp, curse those fantastic waves, fun though.
