Taking It Even Slower

Our last 2 nights were spent in the dusty little seaside town of Progresso. They do get cruise ships docking there about once a week, and in the summer the locals from Merida flock to their beach homes to escape the heat. But compared to Merida it was very quiet, with very little to do. Which was just fine with us. The weather cooled off to much to swim in either the ocean or the pool at the place we stayed. It's hard to call it a hotel, when they only have 3 rooms. They are in the proceedure of renovating, so new rooms are on the horizon. But the Dutch family that runs it was very nice. And the bed was much more comfortable than the place in Merida. We walked along the beach into town, twice a day to eat and browse and be serenaded by wandering minstrals. The beach is quite "unremarkable" to quote my guide book, and strewn with seaweed (but no garbage, unlike Japan). We spent some time lying in the hammocks in the courtyard, reading, or sitting at the tables in the restaurant chatting. And time just disappeared, until it was time to come home. Hasta Luego Mexico, we will be coming back.

The entire batch of photos can be seen on flickr.
