Seibaplaya (day 2)

Sunday December 14…9:00pm

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky all day today. High was about 30C (86F). We expected that because today was Sunday, our spot here would be a little busier, but very few locals showed up.

Ruth and I took Whiskey for a walk up to the local port. We’ve been watching with the binoculars and there has been a lot of activity there, even on a Sunday. None of it seems public though, so we wanted to get a closer look. When we got to the entrance, there was a security hut with 4 guards. I told them we were from Canada, and asked if we could have a look around, but they just shook their heads. So we walked back to our spot. I guess we’ll just have to keep spying with the binoculars and try and figure out what they’re doing. There are a lot of workmen wearing orange coveralls, and a few cranes loading big white crates onto what look like large tug boats.

Some men fishing by the beach

This lizard is about 24 inches long! There are lots of them sunning themselves, but they disappear quickly if you get close

Ruth, on the rocky beach

The palapas that are all pretty much abandoned

We spent the day playing games (backgammon, yahtzee, and cards) and reading.

Our internet signal has disappeared, along with one of the larger ships that had been in port. I think the signal had been coming from that ship, and it has left the port. We will be in Campeche on Tuesday so should have internet then.
