What am I still doing in Cancun?

The adventures of an American single mommy working and playing in paradise.

Everybody’s Working on the Weekend


So last weekend (I dunno why I love to start sentences with “so”) I had to work on the weekend. I have recently been put in charge of the Facebook page for one of the company’s smaller hotels (Ocean Spa Cancun, please go “Like” it) and there was a Hobie Cat tournament (sailing) taking place there on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. So (there I go again) although it was work it wasn’t too painful or anything. I want to share my more “artistic” (lol) photos of the boats.

First I went on Saturday morning. Papi and bebe went with me. I figured they could hang out in the pool. At first I was wondering if the whole thing had been cancelled because I didn’t see any sails or sailors, but after speaking with a few people I found the area where they were getting ready.

Being around the boats made me nostalgic for my childhood summers on Lake Leelanau. I spent a couple of hours there and then we needed to go to grocery shopping. There was no food in the casa.

I went back for a couple hours on Monday morning, which was a Mexican holiday (OF COURSE this doesn’t take place on a day that I would normally have to be sitting in the office staring at the computer, freezing my butt off from the air-conditioning and bathing in artificial light). This was more fun because all of the sails were up and I got to watch them take off from shore.
