Ixtapa, Mexico
La Playa

  These beach umbrellas, actually more like little huts with no walls, were perfect for hiding from the mid-day sun. Or, for those who wanted to "cook" a bit, a nice place to retreat after "the burn."

The thatched roof umbrellas were mounted on wooden posts that were securely anchored in the sand. They had a small circular table attached at just the right height to rest your drink or food without rising from your lounger.

It was a good idea to stake your claim to one by mid-day. Most folks spent most of the day reading, relaxing, swimming, and back to relaxing under the umbrella. With food and drink only a hand wave away. Why move?

Early morning was quiet
and a great time to walk along the beach.
