Volleyball is usually about an hour and the games are a lot of fun. Once the competition is over, everyone chats, and we then go back to the house and lay out in the sun. This is the hotter part of the day and it can be filled with reading, sleeping, eating or sometimes walking down town.
We gather and talk in the late afternoon and sometimes play volleyball. It is at this time a location for dinner is discussed and meeting times are set. About every other day we play cribbage with Larry and Maggie in the hours before sunset, then we all walk down to the beach to watch the big yellow ball fall into the water.
Everyone breaks up for an hour of cleaning and changing into their dinner attire. Then it is off to one of the many eating establishments for drinks and food. We have the usual wonderful meal and when we are stuffed and content, we walk down town for our dessert.
The plaza usually has a multitude of things going on and the people watching is outstanding. We end our outing with a walk home, stopping for groceries or the occasional baked goods.
We have syncopated with the Melaque rhythm and are enjoying our little break. Some might think it is too mundane for them, there is a night life and exciting adventures if you prefer that pace. We like the slow laid back way of life down here.
