On a stormy afternoon while visiting the Yucatan we went to Puerto Morelos. It is a small town whose major draw is scuba diving but the weather wasn't really conducive to diving so we walked along the beach. There were a lot of bird on the two small docks and the high winds allowed them to merely spread their wings and be whipped into the air. It was a lot of fun to watch and we spent a good half hour observing the birds take off and land. After a while it was so windy that it didn't feel safe to be out on the dock so we retreated to have a little dinner.
