Had too much fun and sun.
I've been recovering from too much sun. I put sunscreen on but I forgot my lips. The reflection of the gulf waters after standing there for hours fried my lips. They were swollen like I had botox for the last few days and now have turned into blisters. How lovely! I think I have a little virus also, I'm so very tired and congested or maybe I have a little sun poisoning???? I'll live, I just have to weather the storm for a while.
I haven't been in the ocean since...I can't remember. I was able to go in with hubby and a new friend walking on either side of me and once I was up to my waist all was good. The waves were breaking about a mile out at a reef, so there was nothing to come crashing into me. Where we live the waves crash right on shore and I can't keep my balance or duck dive under them to let them pass. I so much enjoyed the warm turquiose waters, it was a little piece of joy I'll never forget.
The mexican people were great and made us feel so welcome, sometimes they tried to help to0 much but were very sweet. Everyone was very accepting and just so opened minded it was awesome! Hubby and I met so many people from all over the world. It was international week and we weren't aware of that going into this. That made for such a great time though. Being at a place like this, you meet people instantly and 15 minutes later are giving each other naked hugs and planning where in the resort are you going to meet for dinner. Now if we were at the beautiful JW Marriott, everyone would have been off to themselves while they're buried in their Blackberries. The wives would be shooting dagger eyes at there husbands for looking at the pretty girls. At our resort everyone is naked and everyone is looking at each other and there is just a complete guard that is let down. They had a mechanical bull because one night was steak night, they had naked volleyball, a contest at the pool decorating your nude partner with fruit and chocolate, balancing on a long surfboard naked while guys on each end were pushing to get you off balance, I could go on. It was just fun. Yes, we did dress for breakfast and dinner, lunch was at the pool bar area so it was optional.
One of my favorite part of the trip was sitting on the beach. At Desire you are required to wear a ankle band at all times, so they know you belong to the resort. The beach was public, so people from other resorts would pass through our portion of beach. Many did not realize what they were going to see and when they did, looked straight ahead or head to the ground. I picked up on this right away and decided to have fun with it. Most of the people walking were couples and the wife was always looking forward while the husband walk a step behind rubber necking back. You could tell the ones that weren't from the resort because they had no band. I wouldn't let them pass with saying "hi, how are you"? They didn't know what to do. They would say "hi" real quick and put there head down and keep walking. This was my game the entire time. Yay! It doesn't take much to entertain me! :)
