Beaches and Seafood and Jellyfish, oh my.

Well, I suppose it's about time that I posted about what is happening in life. As some of you know, David and I just got back from a much needed vacation to Ixtapa, Mexico. Warm, sunny, sandy beaches, great food, great sleep, and an overall great time. I hesitate to give you all a travel-log because let's face it, you don't really care. So I will post a few pics and give you the ups and downs.

This is a sunset on Playa Linda (Beautiful Beach)

This is on the Playa Larga beach. We took a countryside tour, hence the long pants. Not to worry though, they are linen. Nice and breezy.

This is the view from our room. Love the palm trees!

This is the main beach on our last night. It was the closest but we never actually went to it during the day.

This is my sunburnt self at Playa Linda during the day. So fun to play in the waves.

David on the same beach.David making a roof tile with the help of Francisco who has been 83 for the past 5 years. What a character!

One of the reasons I don't do well in a humid climate. Check out that hair! Bobby pins were my friends... and lots of them.
Favorite things about the experience:
The sun
Sleeping in every day
The good food from the most obscure places
Spending time with David
Listening to the waves
Being away from Logan
Things I didn't like so much:
The fact that I got bit by mosquitoes on the second evening of the trip
Time share sharks everywhere you turn.
The hard bed.


  1. Looks like you guys had so much fun! I'm glad that you guys stayed with us, it was really fun to see you. We need to plan a time for us to come up and see your new house.

  2. Definitely! As soon as we get a bed in you are invited down!

  3. So nice...I'm feeling so, so sorry for you!

  4. Yeah! I'm so jealous, baby! what a great vacation. glad you were able to go and sad that you have to come back to work after such a relaxing vacation. Miss you woman!

  5. I am not jealous... I am not jealous.... I am not jealous... OK maybe I am! LoL! It looks like you had a blast and have the sun kiss to prove it! :) That is one thing that is on my "bucket list".

  6. i just watched a friends episode last night that mentions ixtapa. random.
