I’ve been at the beach !

and it was Grrreat !
In the far, far distance you can see the hotel we stayed at.

We flew to Manzanillo, Mexico and then traveled north about a half hour to the Grand Isla Navidad Resort.

Below is a sunrise view of the marina taken from our room.

Years ago I had the opportunity to sail in the Caribbean on a friends boat. Walking around the marina brought back such fond memories, I just love the water and sailing. Weird that I live landlocked on the prairies !

This is the other side of the hotel where we found the hotels’ huge private beach…

and a series of four swimming pools that were connected via water slides. You could start at the top pool and swim and slide your way down to the largest pool and the swim-up bar.

The resort was beautiful and well managed and the food was very good with several different dining locations to choose from. For a little site seeing and tourist action we took a water taxi across the way to the tiny fishing village of Barra de Navidad.

The weather was fantastic and the entire adventure was good and relaxing. We enjoyed our holiday so much, I will hopefully go back some day !

Upon arriving back in Canada I came down with that miserable flu that has been making the rounds – probably all around the globe. What a blessing that I didn’t get it any sooner – or pass it on to any family members. I am just now starting to feel more like myself again so will soon be back with some sewing to share.

    Thanks Allison, it was really nice to get away from winter. We had a blizzard on Saturday that brought about 10″ of snow with it !
