A little vacation redux…

As I’ve professed before I love all things Mexican, including vacations {:o)!  That is where hubby and I and a couple of great friends escaped to a couple of weeks ago. 

I’m always a bit apprehensive when booking this type of vacation– will the accommodations be clean, will the food be good, etc… – after being burnt on my first vacation 13 years ago with a trip to Venezuela where the water at the resort was turned off 5 of the 7 days we were there except for an hour in the morning and another in the afternoon (yikes).  I haven’t had a repeat of that experience, but I haven’t forgotten it either *shudder*!

This year though, we were totally spoiled with amazing accommodations, great food and wonderful grounds, including beach, many saltwater pools and some immaculate landscaping.  And while enjoying all of this we spent a totally relaxing, sun drenched week of doing nothing more than hitting the pool, beach and buffet.

This past week was a jolt back to reality with family and work obligations, phones and computers.  So I thought I would share a couple of pictures with you so that my memory doesn’t fade as fast as my tan has :(!

IMG_2916We awoke one morning at 5:30a to hit the beach for the sunrise – here’s a shot of the moon just before sunrise.

IMG_2883Here is a sample of the beauty of their plant life – in the midst of a Mayan village where the landscape consists mostly of rocks and jungle. 

IMG_2893 A visit to Coba, a Mayan ruin that is the remains of one of the Yucutan Peninsula’s largest trade cities from the Mayan era.  This temple is one of the last climbable ruins in the area – but will be shut down in May of this year.  It’s 42 meters high and was more intimidating to descend than to climb (not to mention the new muscles we all found :)).

And here are a couple more of the sunrise shots..

*sigh* –  thanks for allowing me to reminisce. 

OK now - back to the real world!
