Here are some more photos from the trip, more on the touristy side.
There were some sand sculptures on the beach in Puerto Morelos. If you walked by at the right time of day, you could watch the artists work on them. It was very interesting to see their process. They also have people who walk by and spray them with water so they don’t dry out and crumble.
This is the light house that Puerto Morelos is known for. It was hit by hurricane Beulah in the ’60s and was tilted like this. It has become a well known tourist attraction of the area and has since been replaced by a working lighthouse .
I had an idea for a really artsy shot of me standing in the sand looking out at the lighthouse so I made Aaron take my photo. It was super windy and it wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned but I like it.
One morning we decided to go out for breakfast and found a little restaurant that was just opening up but they assured us we could eat there. I think our waiter was more interested in being our new best friend than he was with serving our breakfast. He made sure to take our photo for us and then had me take a photo of him and Aaron together. We got chorizo omelettes with all fresh ingredients. So delicious!
Another lovely view. The different colors in the ocean are from the coral reefs that surround the area. I think it makes a much more interesting view than just one shade of blue.
We stopped at Air Margaritaville in the Cancún airport while we were waiting for our flight back home.
Probably the most expensive thing I bought on the entire trip was this piña colada at 10am in the airport. Worth it.
One of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I just love how the sky blends into the ocean. You can’t tell where one ends and one begins.
As always, thanks for reading!
Bonus Snap Chat shot! 🙂 side note: I still have to get the film developed from that camera. If anything good turns out from it I’ll be sure to share!
