Every morning I take a walk down the beach. I pretend that this is for health reasons but it’s really just an excuse to put off starting the day for a little while and, well, to take a walk down the beach. Most days I start at the Calle 38 beach access where there are a lot of hotels and tourists, wander past Coco Beach where the fishing and dive boats anchor and end up at local favorite Punta Esmerelda where a freshwater cenote flows into the sea. Since I tend to walk the same stretch of beach several days a week you’d think I’d be used to it by now but the beauty of Playa del Carmen still sneaks up on me. This morning I decided to take the camera along to attempt to capture some of the things I see on an average half hour walk so I could hopefully sort of share the experience with you. Here you go –
Now I that I think about it my morning walks are all about maintaining my health. My mental health.
