I was going down the malecon the other day, and I stopped to check in on a blog reader staying at the Caballo Blanco. There is a man from Georgia, a retired judge, staying there, and I stopped in to see him. He reads my blog and came to town for a couple of weeks, it is his first time here in Mahahual. While I was there I noticed there was a woman building a sand castle on the beach.
Well yesterday I stopped by Caballo Blanco again to talk to Rusty Wright the guy staying there from Georgia. I stopped by to get a photo of him for this blog for a story I am writing about all the people who come to Mahahual and look me up because of this blog. I walked up to him on the beach, and he was standing next to the woman building sand castles on the beach. So as I was talking to him, I took a couple of photos of the woman building sand castles on the beach there.
Like I do a lot, I started talking to the woman building the sandcastle, and I took some photos. So as I was talking to this woman, going back and forth, I turned around and noticed the guy I came to see, was not on the beach anymore, he must have left and gone somewhere. So now today, I have to go back and get a photo of him before he leaves.
Anyway back to the sandcastle. The woman building the sandcastle on the beach at Caballo Blanco is Traci Parsons Hamilton, and she is from Dallas, Texas. She is here on vacation, and she spent some time in Bacalar, before she arrived in Mahahual. She is staying at Caballo Blanco, and spends her days on the beach here, building sand castles.
She told me she took lessons on how to build sand castles, and eventually wants to move here and maybe do building sandcastle lessons on the beaches of Mahahual. She asked me all the usual questions about living here. We also talked about all the big sand castles in Playa del Carmen, and how extensive the construction of sand castles there is. She also told me she has building sand castles at different places for several years. I told her that might be a good cruise ship business here, giving lessons on how to build sand castles to the tourists.
If you want to contact Traci about sandcastle lessons, her email is traciRparsons@aol.com. If you want to see her sandcastle, or watch her build her sand castles, you can go by the Caballo Blanco. Traci will be building sand castles on the beach all weekend, I think she leaves Sunday. So if you ever wanted to learn how to build a sandcastle, or watch one being built, go by and check her out this weekend at the Caballo Blanco.
