San Carlos, Mexico 03.


On my birthday, I woke up at the early hour of 8:30 am. I’d slept a grand total of two hours that morning, but for some reason I naturally woke up early. We didn’t have any plans that day and had severals hours before we had to leave the hotel, so I decided the perfect activity for me right then was to take a nap on the beach.

Ahhh, it was so very relaxing. The weather was perfect and the sound of the waves softly crashing on the beach lulled me into a dreamy, sleep-like state. There were a couple of vendors walking back and forth across the beach and one of them was selling coconuts. With a little salt and lime sprinkled on top, the coconut was a perfect little snack for the beach.

After a few hours of lounging on the beach, the whole group decided to rally and walk to a restaurant at a nearby hotel. From the beach, we could see the hotel off in the distance and we slowly made our way towards it. Along the way, I saw this flock of birds hovering in the air. The interesting thing was that they were all in formation, but hovering together only a few feet off the ground. I’d never seen anything like it before!

Lunch was a simple, but delicious meal of fish tacos. After lunch, it was time for my group to say our goodbyes to the rest of people who were staying and head back to the airport. Of course I was really sad to go, but we decided that we must go back for a longer visit someday in the near future.
