The computer issue has gratefully resolved and so before I become involved in working outside today here are some pictures from my vacation on the Yucatan Peninsula aka The Mexican Riviera.  The hotel staff welcomed us with a glass of champagne and continued during our stay to be helpful and courteous. I felt like a queen with all the attention. We took a tour of the hotel's greenhouse and after hearing about all the ways in which this particular hotel uses "green" technology knew that we had made a good choice and will go there again. The whole family is saving money for another trip to Hacienda Tres Rios.

The food was ever present and delicious, a constant array of delights in which I indulged to my heart's content.  We tasted every strange dish, enjoyed ocotopus kebabs, reveled in fresh fruit and were awed by the avacados.

The beds were soft and the pillows plump.  The three pools stretched out forever and were a great place to lounge.  I loved the beds on the beach, what fun.  Went on a foray into the jungle and paddled back down the river to the ocean in a kayak. Took a side trip to the ecopark, Xcaret, http://www.xcaret.com/,  where my granddaughter swam with the dolphins, creating lifelong memories.

Didn't want to come home to the freezing temperature lol.. but am grateful that we survived the worst plane ride of my entire life!  And now for pictures....

The Pools

Our Favorite Spot for Breakfast 

How about a nap on the beach?

And YES I did rest!!

Ah the beautiful blue ocean!  
Anah swims with the dolphins!

Wooo hooo! I love love love Mexico! You were in Playa del Carmen? I went to Xcaret too, after a Tony Robbins thing in Cancun. I've spent many a happy and/or tipsy hour in Cozumel, also. I miss it !! (used to work on a cruise line that went to Cozumel)

Your granddaughter is a darling!

Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos :)

These pictures are so awesome!!! Thank you for sharing them! I looked at them maybe 5 times, I just loved how the sky and the water and the beaches look! I especially loved the photo of your granddaughter and the dolphin! How amazing is that?! It looks like you had a really nice time and I don't blame you, those beaches look gorgeous. I will definitely consider this place when I go to Mexico. I promised myself I've got to see the Mayan pyramids too though! haha.

I'm sorry that the plane ride was bad, was it because it was long or because of turbulence etc?
