Didn't see the sun again for a couple of days!
Last week Gary and I had the opportunity to get away from the routine for a few days. There was a business meeting in Cancun planned for one of the insurance companies we are appointed with so we added two more days to make the trip less frantic. When we left the Tri-Cities, it was raining. When we landed in Cancun, a storm had just gone through and the clouds were still gray and ominous. Of course, all the locals assured us that it never rained for long in Cancun and tomorrow would be bright!
Except that it wasn't . . .
Friends who had arrived earlier said that it had been raining every day for the three days they'd been in Cancun. Oh well, the weather tends to be a bit unsettled this time of the year as we all saw when Hurricane Patricia hit the Pacific coast of Mexico! Nope, can't complain about a little rain when you're staying at the Ritz Carlton.
Finally on Tuesday afternoon, the sun came out to visit, so we could spend a little time on the beach after our morning meetings. Then on Wednesday when the meeting ended, the clouds were scudding in off the ocean and we weren't sure if they would bring rain or not. We finally took a chance to have lunch out on the beach in a little casita and were rewarded with a beautiful afternoon! I had an amazing ceviche with my margarita, then we relaxed on a double chaise out on the sand watching the waves roll in.
Thursday morning we had to leave, and as always, we wish we'd gone ahead and planned for staying an entire week. One of these days we'll feel a little better about leaving the business for longer periods, but right now we're still making adjustments as sole owners. Still, even a few days away from the office, opening the sliders to the warm ocean breeze, was a welcome break!
Gotta start planning for another break!
