We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

A Different Side of Puerto Vallarta

Although we had never been in Puerto Vallarta before, we decided not to do the traditional bus tour of the city but instead rent a boat with several other couples and head up the coast to a private beach. It was definitely an adventure...and began with us waiting here at this outdoor restaurant for our guide and captain.
 We wondered which of these boats might be ours.
 Finally our guide arrived and we climbed aboard.
 We were off on our adventure......
 ....unfortunately there was a haze in the air so the shoreline wasn't as clear as expected
 ...but it was still beautiful, complete with a pair of whales swimming alongside of us.

 The large homes dotting the shoreline were built right into the rocks.

 Our private beach.....
 ...our boat dropped us off and then dropped anchor in the bay.
Nancy and I were just enjoying being on the beach together when a wave hit us as Dave was taking our picture!
 It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing...

 ...a spiny sea star and a sea urchin

 Lunch was eaten in a beach restaurant around the next cove...
Too soon it was time to head back to the ship and the commercialism of the city...but for a few hours, we had a wonderfully relaxing time with old friends and new friends, making some amazing memories!

Cruises are so much fun! I can harldy believe that it's only been five months since we were there too. Your pictures are great!
