Life's a Beach... a real pretty one!
One of the distinct advantages to being your own boss is you can take off just about any old time you please for a leisurely lunch. That's exactly what we decided to do yesterday. The "Wicked Burger" was calling my name so we grabbed Mitch and Kate and made time for Wicky's on the beach. In case anyone was looking for a Playa del Carmen beach update, here you go. I think we can officially lay claim to the whitest sand in the world!
Wicky's Restaurant and Beach Club
Buffalo Chicken Wings (best in Playa, FYI) with blue cheese sauce, yummmm
The American Burger with real cheddar cheese
Chicken Salad sandwich
French Fries with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese....back off...they're all mine!!
The Wicked Burger
Fresh brewed iced tea. Perfect on this hot Playa day.
As Kate arrived from London well after the beach reclamation had finished, she
inquired (as many others have) whether a lot of the new sand had eroded
away. I took a good look today and, honestly, the erosion that we
witnessed in the weeks immediately after the sand was relocated seems
to have abated. The big "shelf" that was created near the waterline
seems to be evening out and the beaches look really good.
I'm not going
to get into the argument about whether this beach reclamation project
was a good thing or a bad thing. (So don't go leaving any nasty comments for me) I'll leave that to the experts. I can
say for certain that the beach in Playa del Carmen is beautiful and I am happy to be lucky
enough to enjoy it everyday.
