Saturday 17th October 2009. Cancun. Day off.
We've done very well these past few days and got through a great deal of work regarding the broadcast / DVD shoot scheduled for next weekend at the Rosebowl in L.A. Consequently I allowed myself a bit of down time this afternoon and went to discover the beach and even braved the jellyfish in order to swim in the ocean for the first time in as long as I can remember.
By mid-afternoon the sky had turned an attractive shade of black as a huge tropical storm blew in. By early evening the storm broke and torrential rain poured out of the sky, accompanied by spectacular lightning and thunder rolls. Thus far in our stay it has been clear that we are the only people in the resort, but today, rather unfortunately, a wedding party had arrived. Apparently plan A had been to do a whole sunset beach wedding, but the hurricane had required everything to be moved inside so we got to spend our last evening in the company of the full on wedding disco experience featuring the violinist from hell.
This, and a very early start tomorrow, prompted me to take an early night and pack my bags, ready for the morning.
