Dec 19, 2011 - P.V. et les environs

Partons vers Puerto Vallarta, la magnifique. Très belle température. Prenons l’autoroute payante, jusqu’à la 200 qui est sinueuse et pas d’accotement, ce qui est normale sur certaine route du Mexique. Arrivés au camping Le Tacho’s RV Park vers 15 hres. Camping situé à l’entrée de la ville. Pas très difficile à trouver, sauf qu’en entrant à PV, il faut utiliser les latérales et non la route principale, car la police est là et ne tolère par les « rigs » sur la principale. Beau camping, très paysagé, grands terrains avec patios en pierre....

Mexique-2011-2012

Apr 13, 2011 - Carbo San Lucas - Puerto Vallarta

We have had a most spectacular time in mexico. I can not believe that the 7 days have passed so quick. The endless supply of food and entertainment have increased everyones waist. The kids camp have programs from 10 am till around 12 midnight. We have been to dance spectaculars and comedy clubs. Most of the jokes are about American things but they are still very funny. We have had a couple of rounds of mini golf, nothing like the roll of the ship to help with my score. Still not sure if it is one strike or more if you hit your ball of the...

Mar 20, 2011 - Puerto Vallarta

I am finally getting around to posting photos from our trip last month to Puerto Vallarta. Sorry to my "traveling chums" that it took a month - I first had to post the photos from granddaughter Avery's first birthday party, and then I flew up to my hometown of Sandwich, MA to visit my mom and dad for a few weeks, and we've been busy! However, here are some photos from our 19 wonderful days in our favorite foreign city...beautiful tropical Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Yes, it is still very SAFE there! We had a wonderful time as always. We bought...

Dec 21, 2010 - Livin la vida loca

Decemmber 11 to 21, 2010 Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Wednesday December 11th I check into room #17 at the Hotel Hortencia ##photo=Room #17 at the Hotel Hortencia## in Old Town Puerto Vallarta and pick up a six pack of 'Indio' beer at the corner OXO store (the Mexican equivalent of a 7-eleven). My room has a small balcony that overlooks a busy intersection and I sit and feel the pulse of the place while I contemplate my next move. The sidewalks are a gauntlet of uneven pavement with curbs and steps thrown in every few meters for no apparent...

Mexico o Busto! 2010

Dec 14, 2010 - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The Sapphire Princess pulled up to Puerto Vallarta early this morning, and instantly there was a flea market set up for our shopping pleasure as soon as you stepped off the ship. Turkey and I had received an invitation to visit Tanzanite Jewellery store, which was just North of the Cruise terminal. We had a brief visit with this store, and then headed by taxi into Puerto Vallarta. We shopped a little bit, but again, we really do not have any space in our suitcase that is not occupied, so shopping is really a waste of time for us. We headed...

Dec 13, 2010 - Mexican Riviera Cruise

We have been at sea for 2 days now. It took us several hours to find our way around the ship. It didn’t help that I got snagged as soon as we got on board the ship. A woman came up to me and asked me if I had a bit of free time. What could I say…she had the gun! Really, she offered me a free toxic cleanse. All I had to do was be her model for 80 minutes. Of course, I said yes! So Turkey went on his merry way, and I lay in a mold of seaweed, & algae combined with galvanic and faradic stimuli. (I have no idea what that means, but the woman...

Nov 21, 2010 - A little history

11/19/10 This was a really fun day. We got up early and went to starbucks. Then we came back to the room and had lunch here. Monroe read, and I walked down the hill into town. I shopped until I dropped. There is so much good shopping here. I found lots of treasures for very little money. And the people are not desperate like they are in Puerto penasco. I was on the streets for a couple hours and never got pan-handled. Which says they are not starving here, like they are at home. We drove out to Le Kliff, which is about 25 miles of windy,...

Nov 19, 2010 - La Siesta

We moved south Wednesday. We decided to spend our last 3 nights at our favorite place, which is the La Siesta hotel. It is located at the top of a hill overlooking downtown Puerto Vallarta. The colonial architecture of La Siesta and the quaint “old city” charm creates an atmosphere that reminds me of old Mexico. When we get here we never want to leave the room, just sit on the balcony and watch the city and the ocean. From the balcony we see the cobblestone streets bustling with activity, and bougainvilleas that seem to grow wild...

Nov 17, 2010 - Day 17

Day 17 - Layover in Puerto Vallarta Another day of rest! We “slept in,” had great coffee and a good breakfast and walked, walked, walked! Riding all day doesn’t leave much for exercise so these layover days are good to make sure all the moving parts are working (other than the clutch hand and the shifter foot). It was also good to catch up on “business” (like laundry (whew!)) and take in the sites of Vallarta. It’s mid-week and off-season so, unless a cruise ship comes to port and unloads it cargo (passengers from Wisconsin and the like),...

Nov 17, 2010 - Moving south

I seem to be having trouble uploading pictures. Every one I try, it tells me file is too large. So I think I have gotten a couple, but I'll post a link later with my picassa site. This morning we went over to Jesse and Jan Vidals for breakfast. Jesse and Monroe worked together at Coldwell Banker and were good friends. They were both in the Navy (Jesse was a Navy Seal) and they both love treasure hunting. A couple of years ago their granddaughter came to Penasco to visit them, and when they were driving her back to Arizona they had a head on...
