Easy Breezy Day
The very first day of 2020 began, not with a run (the only day I missed!) but with a walk for breakfast to the restaurant, Sabor a Mi – where Michael and I were now regulars! Well, just a bit! The server, who we’d come to call Mucho Coocoo – was working the breakfast shift! Michael and I were surprised, as we saw him serving the New Year’s Eve dinner! Mind you, we could smell tequila from him! Probably helping him through his morning shift! 😉 There was evidence of the evening party all round the restaurant!
Chahué Beach – Our “Polar Bear” Dip
Next stop after breakfast, the beach! Just like all the other Canadians who jumped into either the Atlantic Ocean or Pacific Ocean on New Year’s day, Michael and I jumped into the Pacific Ocean too! Thankfully, Chahué Beach is closer to the equator than the waters our fellow Canucks were jumping into this day! We don’t have any pictures of us in the water! We forgot! LOL!!!
Note – see the MANY footsteps on the sand? It is a Mexican tradition to watch the first sunrise of the year – New Year’s Day – sunrise. Chahué Beach, at sunrise this day, was PACKED with both local and domestic tourists to watch the first sunrise of 2020. Michael and I know this, as a couple we met on the beach, from Sweden, who have been vacationing in Huatulco for over 20 years, told us about this.
La Crema Bar
After the beach, Michael and I hopped a taxi to downtown La Crucecita for lunch. There was a restaurant we were looking for, La Crema Bar, renowned for its pizza! Unfortunately, it was closed. It didn’t open until 5:00pm. It was 4:00pm. We were starving!
Located beneath La Crema restaurant, this ground floor attraction, Xipol, catered to the Canadian snowbird population and Canadian tourists of La Crucecita. One of the many TV screens in the restaurant played Canadian television – especially sports! The World Junior Hockey Championships were well showcased! The food was delicious, the service excellent! They even had a manager on staff whose job it was to translate English to Spanish to the servers!
Sights of Downtown La Crucecita
After a late lunch/early supper, Michael and I walked around, making our way back to our Airbnb apartment to relax and just be together.
Buenas noches & Feliz Año Nuevo!!
