The first thing I did upon debarking from the Tracker was have a good laugh. Little Isal grabbed my hand, looked up into my face and in all seriousness asked, "What ARE we doing at this place?" After I regained my composure, I told her we were here to see the iguanas. I could tell that she thought it was an incredibly stupid idea. Iquanas are everywhere to be seen in the Yucatan where she is from. I could just see her mentally scratching her head, trying to figure out this one more mystery about Gringos.
I was really impressed how they have cleaned the place up and actually have made it a nice place to visit. The views from out there have always mesmerized me anyway. The new palapa building and sidewalks are now complete.
They have even put their foot down and made all of the vendors locate in one spot.
They have even constructed an amphitheater of sorts. I would imagine that it is mostly used for sunrise viewing. This is the place where the first sunrise over Mexico occurs every day.
While we were there, it grew progressively dark and the water really started to churn. Time to head back to the safety of the Tracker!
But first a picture of Isal with the iquanas. I told her to act like she was afraid of them. I don't think she really knows the meaning of being frightened by anything.
And then, of course, big sister had to step in and tell her really how to pose for a picture. I absolutely hate that they make little girls pose like this. Remember, she is only 6 years old and already being taught to pose like this.
In thinking about it, maybe I should just not post any pictures posed like this if they upset me so much. Or better yet, refuse to take them. What do you all think?
