We're Back

We traveled to Acapulco this past week for a little r and r and some fun in the sun with friends. We missed Amaya tons, but we had a blast at the same time. We can't thank Sarah and Jeramiah enough for inviting us to this tropical paradise. We couldn't have had a better time. The resort we stayed at was fabulous...a 10 in my book. It had everything we needed and then some. But we still ventured into the heart of Acapulco 3 nights, where we experienced the culture and made some wonderful memories, along with some interesting and funny memories.. So here are a few pictures of our vacation.

The view from our suite.
We had a view of the waterpark, some of the pools, the ocean, the kayak lake, and even the golf course, since we had a corner suite.
The resort's pools were amazing. One was so long it took quite sometime to travel the entire length. Especially when balancing our 2 for 1's during happy hour. Smile, smile. It was like one of the longest in Mexico or something. Then they had a series of interconnecting pools that were at different elevations, but were connected by waterfalls. I loved the waterfalls, but again, it was hard to climb the rocks to get from one pool to the other carrying our libations. The waterpark was fun, also. It had a lazy river, which was perfect for sipping on tropical drinks. Once you were on your intertube that is.
Here is our view of the golf course. Scott and Jeramiah managed to get in 3 rounds of golf while their wives were busy enjoying the spa. Gotta love the spa. When will those boys catch on that the spa is really where it's at?
This was the plunge pool on our balcony. We had intended on having cocktails in it and watching the sunset one evening before going out...but never quite got around to it. Great idea in theory, but by then we were usually ready to get out of our swimming suits and get showered up.
We took some pictures on our balcony before going out one evening.
It was so can see the photos getting foggier and foggier with each successive snapshot.
Here is one of the last ones. Crazy. The condensation on the lens went away when we went back inside, thank goodness.

Acapulco bay by day, or dusk I guess...
...and by night. We had some excellent meals while in Acapulco. I think the Mexican meals I had in Mexico ruined me for Mexican meals in America. They had much more flavor. Guess we'll have to go back. Darn. Smile, smile. We also had excellent sushi and wonderful oyster's rockefeller.
Bar hopping one night. Ask Scott about his new hobby go-go dancing. Unfortunately Scott and I forgot to bring our camera that night. Darn.

Becky-That resort looks amazing. You need to let me know the name of it. Glad you had fun and made it back safely. I bet Amaya had the biggest grin when she saw you both.
