Ixtapa part 3

We went to Playa Las Gatas. We took a taxi to Zhieuatanejo, then we took a boat across the bay. On the other side there were tiny waves. When you went out to where the waves were splashing, you would find that the bottom slopes for about a foot, then the water is clear and calm with a sandy bottom and you can swim in it as if it was a swimming pool. It was also warm. If you went out a little further you could snorkle and see fish and coral. You could actually go out to the coral reef, but we didn't want to because the water was so shallow there and we wanted to be able to look down on the fishes, not say hello and shake their fin.

I learned how to carve sand castles. Anisha and I made the prettiest fairy castle for the sand fairies to live in. I carved the bottom part while Nini made a drip castle up top. Then we dug a tunnel through it as a hallway and off of the tunnel we dug little rooms into which we put sand furnishings. We hope the fairies like our castle.

We went to that beach twice. I think it was my most favorite part of the whole trip!

What a great travelouge and super photos! Sounds like you had an exciting Ixtapa trip!! It's a good thing you didn't run into any sharks when you were snorkeling!

Love you so much Tory & Shelley!
