Get on my hipster level, children.
I have a pretty rad ride. Yo.
Wait, you guys do realize that this is ‘Shopped, right? I mean, Think about it, we are neighbors to Mars, with the only thing changing the way our sky looks being the atmosphere. There are no more stars near Mars or planets that would cause this. Further, the angles are very close, identical I would even wager. Notice the gradation in the darker of the two, it is identical as well. In the brighter one that is supposedly on Mars, look at the ring surrounding it. This is an artifact originating from a shoddy use of the selection tool in Photoshop. They feathered it too much, so the color in the Star Wars scene (the sky) is showing in a sort of ring.
I am seriously in shock as to how many notes this had, with people seeming to think it was legitimate. I hope people know it isn’t… Our solar system has one star, the Sun. Not two.
Kayaking at Passion Beach
Passion Beach, near Cozumel, Mexico.
Passion Beach is the location for the largely popular Corona commercials, which depict the quintessential ‘paradise beach.’ Here, the sand is smooth on the beach, but a little rough in the water itself until you travel anywhere between 5-10 feet out. At the time of my visit (August 3rd), the water was refreshingly cool but comfortingly lukewarm, which made it perfect for swimming. The beach itself has a few attractions, such as floating obstacles, play toys in the water, and kayaks. Of course there are lounging beach chairs, but few umbrellas. That isn’t to say there isn’t any shade, however. Behind the beach front itself, there is a decent sized strip of coconut trees and Australian pines. Here, you can relax at one of many tables, or grab a bite to eat at the unlimited buffet, serving authentic and fresh chips, salsa, and guacamole. For those interested in something heavier, there was also grilled chicken and Tilapia, with a few sides of rice and french fries. Chicken nuggets were even prepared for the picky eaters!
With the particular excursion I attended, there were unlimited drinks and alcohol, but that truly doesn’t interest me, so I won’t speak much on it. It was just there, and without exception, when people have it, there will also be those who have too much.
As they book the beach on a first-come-first-serve basis, the beach was not overcrowded, but there were plenty of people.
Overall, I quite enjoyed my time there, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to experience that “ideal beach.” There were only a few things that piqued me a bit, however small they were. First, the line for food was painstakingly slow. It crawled unnecessarily slowly, so much so, that I decided to come back another time for food. This did not help. If you are wanting to get through the line quickly, go when the excursion is almost over. Second, was the wind. I have hair that is windswept easily, so this annoyed me a bit, but certainly not a deal breaker. Then there were the drunks, the adults (and non-adults) who decided to forget their maturity at home and over-drink, telling themselves, “It is just vacation, I can do what I want to.” If anything, I am merely picking nits, because again, I enjoyed my time.
As for how the beach looked itself, well I think my picture speaks for itself.
