My first upright bicycle came from Mexico. Every year when Rod and I would come, we would each buy a bicycle and then give them away at the end of our stay. One year I was so in love with my blue and silver upright bicycle with its basket that I brought it home and now I’ve passed it along to one of Rosie’s friend, Eden. I love bicycles!
I love textures and colours the same way I love texture and colours of fabrics. I delight in capturing parts of the whole featuring colour, design and materials. This is the top of a water fountain that is in the middle of one of the intersections. The sun was just setting and it filled the interior of this bowl-like glass piece sitting on the top.
There is a building on the corner of one of the streets and on the front it has this exquisite mosaic made out of glass. I took a picture of the building but it was boring….I am more fascinated with the glass pieces and how they put them all together into a beautiful mosaic wall that shimmers in the sunlight.
Although we’ve never eaten here, I love looking everytime we pass by. I stand to be corrected….I remember a morning coffee…..nevertheless, the french-ness, the shabby blues and shabby whites are definitely chic. Fifth Avenue, which is the main avenue in Playa, has an international flair, so although most things are Mexican, I do relish when I find refreshing design.
This ends my random collection of what I saw this afternoon. I am planning another photo shoot tomorrow with more delightful colour. It doesn’t necessarily tell the story of where we are or what we are doing per se, but I love looking for beauty in the moment….
This morning we took a long, long walk on the beach—another 4 hours, but this time longer than the last…..I have to figure out our distance because it is intriguing me to know. Discussion of the day: code of ethics, morality, values and virtues….4 long hours of exploration, questions and good conversation……tonight nachos, guacamole, Rod a beer, Jill a peppermint tea….lovely day, good books and sunshine.
