Life’s a Beach ~ Playa Posada New Year’s Day 2009

I decided to spend New Year’s Day at the Posada Beach. My knee was aching pretty badly and I wanted to be able to easily get in to the water and not have to walk so far on the beach. Denise was going to spend the day at Jax along with some other friends watching college football so I headed to the beach early and found my spot for the day.

The day started out with just me and these lonely beach chairs.

By early afternoon there were tons of Mexican Nationals on the beach. Huge families all enjoying the beach, the water, eating and drinking. I was actually one of the very few gringos on that stretch of beach that day. This is a great beach spot to see all of the boats coming and going from the docks and marinas.

I went across the street to Penguinos for a late late and took these photos from there.

How can she wear all of that? I was roasting in my bathing suit.

Lots of kids playing on the beach and in the water.

Niños en la playa

Kids having fun playing in the water and on the beach on Isla Mujeres.

This is the same little girl 6 months later. Dontcha just love the look on her face. “I am not letting a little sand get in my way of eating this cookie!”


They may speak (or not yet speak) different languages but they had fun playing together

A nude beach on Isla?

Then we have this little thing already selling to tourist on the beach. I was approached once by an even younger girl who tried to sell me the paper drink umbrella that she found on the beach.
