Puerto Vallarta!

OK!!  I have been trying to post this for 3 days!!  But between my computer and Spaces,  It has been a pain in the…… Ear!!  lol!
 
But here it is!  LOL!
 
It was a smooth flight and when we arrived it was downright balmy.  75F with a nice ocean breeze.  We were anxious to see our condo and thrilled when we did!  Two bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, a Full kitchen, 3 TV’s (with 90 channels!), a Hot Tub on our patio overlooking the ocean, a washer/dryer (instructions in Spanish), at least 12 closets and of course, maid service.
 
Here are pics of our ‘place’:

The pool sucked!  Too many kids and WAY too many ‘activities’!  So we stuck to the beach and our patio. 
 
Here is our patio!

Then there were the many beach activities going on. 
 
Here is Becky getting into a catermaran:

Like I said, the pool was a madhouse!!
 
Puerto Vallarta 122
 
We spent our final night downtown at an Italian (YES!!  Italian!) restaurant overlooking the sidewalk activity and the beach.  They have interesting statues erected along the main drag!

But this guy??   He covered himself in mud and posed as a statue, motionless, for 5 minutes at a time!!  When he finally moved, people would jump back!! LOL!!  What a job!

Oh Yeah….  There ARE ‘lowriders’ in Puerto Vallarta!
Puerto Vallarta 127
 
Oh Yeah!!  If you go there and are really into it, go to ‘The Zoo’!!  It’s a wild bar downtown!!  We posed with their mascot! (Bigger Freak than me!!!)
 
Puerto Vallarta 141
 
We had a GREAT time but as always, it’s good to be home!!  I missed my dogs and my friends!! 
 
Hope you enjoyed the pics and when I win the lottery, this is where we are all going!! 
 
 P S  Sorry about duplicate pics and overlays!
 
 
I think that this is a GREAT song!

    I’m so excited waiting for my space bags filled with those wonderful margaritas, and I’m sure Pedro didn’t mind when you stuffed him in the other, I hope you didn’t forget to give him the straw to breathe with. I hope too that you sent maybe a small space bag full of those lobsers. I’m sure it will arrive anyday!

    Bob,  Looks like you had a great time.  Welcome home!
    As ever be well,

  30. Jane says:

    Sigh!  You went with out me…
    Last time we went it was over Easter.  Awesome sand sculptures and a huge lowrider night parade.  They can really light those cars up in some interesting ways.
    Those drinks look wonderful.
    And the beach.
    And the food, although I can’t imagine any restaurant is a very LUCKY place for a lobster.
