It’s hard to believe we’ve been in Cozumel for a week already. The time has really flown by.
When I woke up and looked outside, I thought to myself that it was probably the calmest day we’ve had so far; the waves barely lapped the shore. So we were all very surprised to discover that the swells were too high for the boat to pick us up, and we had to take taxis to the harbor. It was mildly inconvenient, but it was nice to not have a long boat ride for once. On the way back they tried to go to the dock, but we turned around when we reached the cruise ship port and went back to the harbor.
I’m not very good at checking the time, but it seemed like we got back quite a bit earlier than previous dive days. After lunch, Kristen and I went poolside to soak up some rays. At around three we headed up to the room for a proper nap before our night dive.
For dinner we opted to walk south again instead of heading to town. We ate at Paprika’s again, just like last Saturday. Nick and I duplicated our previous meal. Kristen let me try some of her flan. I admit it was pretty good. Much better than the restaurant at the hotel. Still, something about the texture is hard for me to swallow (see what I did there?).
Also, I decided to do the 100 Burpee Challenge with BRK. It started December 1 with one burpee. We’ll be adding an additional burpee each day until the last day, when we do 100 burpees. At the time I agreed to participate, I didn’t realize they were the push-up burpees. This should be interesting. Oh well, at least the $10 entry fee goes to a good cause. I think. I’m really not sure. I may or may not make a periodic post about the challenge.
Anyway, what I’m trying to get at is that I had to do my three burpees today after dinner on a full stomach. I wouldn’t recommend doing that again. The burpees will definitely be before mealtimes from here on out!
I just realized that I took no non diving related photos today, so here’s a pic from the other day. My first authentic churro! A nice gentleman moseys about the resort selling them. He makes chocolate and vanilla, but he promised to bring us blueberry before we have to go home.
