The Right Supplies, A Great Time, And Back To Reality

Patty and I had a great time on our trip to Puerto Vallarta. The right supplies for the ailments we left with, a positive attitude, some sun, sand, and a couple of margaritas all made for a very positive and healing trip.

Starting with the right supplies,

we were able to enjoy the sun and the beach.

We enjoyed the sculptures done in sand

and the more traditional kinds of sculpture.

We got into the wild life, that is nature's wildlife

by meeting the hotel's resident Iguanas

and sharing our lunch with a visiting friend.

The sunsets were gorgeous.

The people were interesting,

and sweet

and beautiful.

All vacations end with a return to reality. Our reality was snow that started just as we were driving home from the airport.      Sigh!


  1. Great photographs. I love the last one - a face that can tell a thousand stories...

  2. Sounds like a nice relaxed time. I could use something like that myself right about now!

  3. Love that you shared your lunch with the bird! How cool!!!

    Looks like you had a blast!! Tons of warm sun soaked up to last you till spring I hope!

  4. I'm so jealous! The last time I went to the beach, on a vacation with my cousin and her family to Florida, the wind was blowing so hard that we were sand blasted every time we went out the door! Especially loved photos of the iguana and pidgeon sharing your food!

  5. Oh girl, I'm so happy you had the perfect vacation. Your pictures are amazingly beautiful. My favorite is the last beautiful little lady. I can only imagine the stories she has to share! Now, tell me more about the sbit tissues, 'cause Mr. Snot knows your nose!!! That's funny!

    I'm so glad you made it home safe and sound. Keep cozy and have a marvelous weekend!!!

  6. THe only bummer about going on vacation is leaving.

  7. Hola! So glad to hear you had a great time and see the wonderful pictures of your time in Puerto Vallarta. Love the tissues!

  8. Ohhh. That all sounds (and looks!) sooo lovely.

    Except for that lizard-y thing.

  9. Beautiful photos. Those tissues are truth in advertising.

    I'm sorry the real world must intrude on you.

    Getting Reacquainted in 55

  10. I am positively swooning over those vacation photos. Oh how I wish I could have tagged along. The sand sculpture and the resident iguanas were my favorites.

    Oh... and that sunset.

    Welcome back though. You were missed.

  11. Wow, those are all such great pictures. I look at you in the sun and the warmth, and then look outside here, and the difference is, well, kind of disheartening. So I come back and look at the sun again!

    So glad you had a good time!

  12. Woo-hoo! It looks like a fabulous vacation Jeanie.

    The tissues are a crack up! The sand sculptures are awesome. The wildlife is a little scary (for me). And the people are beautiful.

    What more could you ask for.

  13. It looks like you had a lovely time! shame about the snow on your return.

  14. Looks like fun! (Maybe not the iguana. That would have freaked me out a little.)

  15. It looks like you had a wondeful vacation. Love the pictures!
