Mar 3, 2013 - Home Sweet Home - Winnipeg, Manitoba

Home Sweet Home! We checked our email first thing this morning, and the airline sent us a new itinerary, which sent us from PV to Winnipeg, via Chicago. We will leave at 3 pm this afternoon, and arrive in Winnipeg close to midnight. Whoo Hooooo! Basically it was a non eventful day. We passed through security and customs without a hitch, and were back home by midnight. We had a very, very busy, yet relaxing winter. We were not happy to see the snow, but I guess we can’t really complain.

Mar 2, 2013 - Nuevo Vallarta March 1 - 2, 2013

After cleaning up the condo, and getting ready for our early departure, we hailed a cab down by 9:30 am, enroute to Puerto Vallarta. We checked in to the Comfort Inn, dropped our bags off in our room, and then walked to the Malecon (approx. 8 Km) We stopped in at the Circle Bar, at the Malecon Market, and had some refreshments there. We saw some really nice people that we met, and said good-bye to the bartenders, who were such sweethearts, by the way. A little supper at the Cheeky Monkey (another favourite) and then a cab back to our hotel....

Feb 28, 2013 - Nuevo Vallarta Feb 23 - 28, 2013

Feb 23rd we headed back in to Bucerias, another small fishing village just North of Nuevo Vallarta. It was another 13 Km roundtrip walk along the beach, but well worth it. We stopped at this little family run restaurant and had shrimp fajitas. Deeeelicious! Back to the condo to watch the women’s curling. It was +27 C again today. Feb 24th we walked (roadside, as the tide was in) to Paradise Village, to pick up a couple of supplies. Back to the condo in time to catch the Canada/Manitoba women’s curling game. It was a bit cooler today, and a...

Feb 15th and 16th were spent around the condo pool area. Feb 17th, after spending most of the day by the pool, we walked across to ETC for some shrimp and lobster. The shrimp was really good, but their lobster was not worth ordering again, and nowhere near as good as our East Coast lobster. Feb 18th was another pool day. The temperature has been a consistent +27 C and clear for the past two weeks. Feb 19th the guys walked (or cabbed) to Walmart for more supplies. We spent another relaxing day by the pool, and then headed to Dolce Vita to...

Feb 15, 2013 - Nuevo Vallarta Feb 4 - 14, 2013

I know, I know, I have been procrastinating again on this journal. We’ve been on vacation for the past 3 weeks, making it hard to keep up our normal routine, lol. Feb 4th, after walking down to Paradise Village and back (approx 6 km) we met up with Mel and Mark, from Saskatoon. We had lunch at ETC (the beach bar/restaurant right across from our condo). After lunch, they came up to our condo, and we had a really good visit. It was darn near supper time when they caught the ATM bus back to their hotel Rui Jalisco. Feb 5th we walked 4 ½ Km to...

Feb 3, 2013 - Nuevo Vallarta Feb 1 - 3, 2013

Feb 1st came very quickly, and before you knew it, the owner of the Hotel Jacqueline was driving us down the road to Nuevo Vallarta. We found a beautiful condo right on the beach, called Nitta Condo. There is miles and miles of beach here, great for walking. Friday we walked to the Mega Store (6 Km) to pick up a few groceries, and cabbed back to the condo. Saturday found us walking to a different grocery store in the small town of Mezcales, and walking back again (9 Km). Sunday we walked to De Cameron in Bucerias and back again (10...
