Puerto Vallarta

Hi! We are back from a wonderful trip to the Mexcian Riviera!

Our cruise was wonderful! The weather was perfect all week and we had so much fun meeting new people, exploring the 3 ports of call, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
I have chosen the best of the 300 photos we took to share with you.

Today I will show you Puerto Vallarta.

The boardwalk was filled will bronze and sand sculptures that were breathtaking!






Here I am with a singing sculpture...


and here is Melanie. :)





This sculpture is made of sand!

We felt like we were visiting an outdoor museum.




We were in awe of the beautiful art at every turn.

It was a fabulous day of art and shopping!



Tomorrow I will show you the tour we took of Mazatlan.
I missed all of you and cannot wait to catch up to see what you did all week. :)

You and Melanie look like you had such a great time. Do you have your landlegs back, or are you still waking up every morning looking for something fruity to drink out of a coconut? The weather looks perfect there but I see you are wearing jackets!!!
