Welcome to our Vacation Blog

This Blog will archive our trips over the last 15 or 20 years. I think you will find some of them humorous and may even trigger a familiar thought. We had originally planned to travel away from Canada for most winters. I don’t think either of us enjoy walking or driving in snow or icy conditions. We did however do it for many years- we have paid our dues!

Our first day “still in Mexico!”


Remember the bartender, well every morning he would go out to a local Mexican bakery and bring back a variety of fresh donuts and make coffee for guests. After breakfast, we walked to the beach;DSCF0273It was a few blocks south of our hotel. The sand was so white and clean and the water was warm, it was fantastic, like an ad from a magazine. We rented a couple of lounge chairs for $2.00 and sat on the beach for a while watching the local fishermen bring in their catch of fresh fish which they took to the local restaurants. We walked to a restaurant and had lunch it was delicious. We started looking around for a post office so I could get some stamps. Finally after an hour and asking a couple of locals we located the post office bought stamps and headed back to the hotel. At the hotel we had a rest and a beer with Ga100_0248rry. We needed some fresh fruit so we decided to go to Wal-Mart, the Wal-Mart was huge, and anything you would want was there. A little tip, when you are exchanging money, look around, because the rate of exchange can be very different from exchange kiosks, and if you go to a bank machine you get pesos and not necessarily the best rate. On the way home from Wal-Mart we ended up going to the Mexican restaurant again.
