Mayan Riviera Travel Blog--Day Four

Today is another beach day. You can eat at any time at one of the three buffets, but there are others that are reservation only for dinner. My husband stood in line to get us a spot at the steak house, El Gaucho, which is apparently popular. We also booked the Asian restaurant for Thursday. We had a chance to go on the internet again. The keyboard takes some getting used to. The cost is $5 US dollars for an hour, and you can sign out and use the remaining minutes the next day. We had messages from our daughters and my co-worker. I finished reading a book, and wrote the review while it was fresh in my mind.
The ocean water is warm, some places are rocky, and there is the usual detritus, but they try to keep up with it, raking up a few wheelbarrowfuls daily. We brought along our water shoes, but we haven’t needed them. The beach is a good distance from the room, but then it’s a big resort, so what else would you expect? As long as you pack everything you need with you, you can spend the whole day on the beach.
So far, only one topless woman on this beach. I feel embarrassed for her, since she obviously doesn’t feel any herself.
Oh, update. Make that two.
We had a dress-up dinner at the steakhouse, which was good.
