The honeymooners: Day four.

May 26, 2010

On the fourth day of our honeymoon, which was the last full day in Cancun, we woke up bright and early to go on our next adventure. We boarded a bus to Playa del Carmen, an hour drive from our hotel.

We pulled up to the side of the road and were escorted through a shaded jungle. The light at the end of the tunnel was a white, sandy ranch.

On this ranch were two Mexican cowboys who were ready to show us the ropes of horseback riding.

As we waited to saddle up, we roamed the ranch and made some friends.

And then I smuggled the baby sheep. I wish.

We got on our horses that were specifically picked out for us and headed into the jungle. After a thirty minute trot, we ended up on a white beach and rode along the shore. I have always wanted to do this.

I am pretty sure Chris and his horse didn't quite fit together, but that's neither here nor there.

We witnessed a camel crossing which I swore I would have to travel to Egypt to ever see. Instead, there were camel rides being offered in the Mexican jungle and we weren't told.

Our two-hour adventure ended and I bid adieu to my horse and thanked him for not bucking me off into the ocean when he had the chance.

When we got back to our hotel, we spent the afternoon enjoying the free food and drinks.

Later that evening, we went to a shopping center that had every American store you could hope for.

We ate Mexican food by the lagoon and watched the sun set over the boats in the water. We sat there for a good two hours soaking in the ocean breeze, guacamole and margaritas.

Before we called it a night, we had to have a Cancun Starbucks just to make sure it tasted them same as it does here.

And it does. Glad we could help figure that one out for you.

We ended the evening in our beautiful room with none other than the Discovery Channel watching a special on the Haitian earthquake. If that doesn't scream romance, I don't know what does. Let's just hope we didn't set a romantic standard for our life to come.

The next day, we cried over having to leave the free drinks, massive bathroom shower and the ocean view. We boarded a plane back to Arizona and settled back into real life.

Actually, we are still settling with walls to paint, bills to pay, meals to cook and a dog to feed.

Looks like the honeymoon is over.
