Well it has been over 13 days since I have set my feet back on the soil in my home town. My husband and I with 3 other fabulous couples spent 10 amazing days in the sunny port side town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
The gang is all here!
Below part of our balcony and view out the front of the hotel.
On our way past dozens of pools to get to the beach.
The pools are interconnected and you could swim from one area to the next. Something I rather enjoyed doing!
On the far left you can see the lazy river.
Of coarse some flora for me!
What was not expected was the impact this piece of the world had on my spirit. Was it the people? Hmmm I think so. Was it the culture, oh definitely. Was it the unguarded beauty on a lonely beach at sunset. Yes I know so. Was it long meandering walks past dozens of resort beaches to come to the end of it all and find and old marina with real locals preparing good food, making a meager living and a heart open to the world. Absolutely!!!
I hope some of my pictures can tell a better story, one my heart can't quite put into words yet. All I know is that I want to go back. Maybe again and again. I think I have a glimpse for the first time of what a snowbird is all about, perhaps even an ex pat. Now I love my town, my family and the good old U.S.A. Nothing like it I am sure. BUT...there is something amazing about getting away from it all for a special moment in time where life is so different yet so heart warming and inviting, to a place full of warmth in more ways than one, a place called P.V. under a lovely Mexican sun!
