Mexico was great!

We're back and we had a great time! Our adventures included parasailing, surfing, snorkeling, fishing and lots of booze. The weather was beautiful and almost 90 degrees the whole trip.

My view from the pool, right next to the bar.

Our resort from the beach!

Parasailing was pretty. They launched you from the beach and landed you on the beach. Pat did just fine in the air. Adam was not so lucky. While in the air the boat engine died. Adam got dunked. He lost his new sunglasses and new hat. Luckily hats float!

Adam and Pat went fishing one morning. They saw sea turtles, stingrays and a huge pod of dolphins. Adam said there must have been hundreds. They got right up to the boat. He said you could feel them bumping into the sides and the bottom of their fishing boat.

Click on the photo for a better view of the dolphins.

The boys caught an Albacore and a black tuna. They picked us up and we headed across the bay to Las Gatas where they prepared our fish for lunch. We sat on the beach with our toes in the sand. After lunch we went snorkeling at Las Gatas.

We had a great time. The food was fantastic, the weather was great, the people were friendly and we never got swine flu. Although we had a great time, it's good to be home.

We're off to Mexico

We're leaving for Mexico this Friday, May 15! We'll be back with photos and new stories.

Bubba's first boat ride

Bubba's a boater doggie! He likes the new boat.

He loves his life jacket. Kona wanted to see over the side.

The Narrows looks so big from underneath it.

It's fishing season

We bought a fishing boat! Adam's definitely got his money worth. More photos of salmon to come in the future!

Talk about an ugly fish!

Meet Artie

Get excited we planted artichokes! We should get about 10 from this one plant!!
