Escape from Winter 2015

This winter was dragging on and on and on. Fortunately we’d foreseen a need for a break from it far in advance and planned a trip to Mexico to visit mis padres.

Some highlights, in no particular order:

  • pal Rachel did her own escape from Boston’s relentless winter by meeting us down there
  • Sarah and my dad did a duet at the BVG Open Mic session
  • picked up a replacement stone for my ring (onyx had cracked; got a nice blue/green fire opal in there now)
  • tried out Sonora Grill Prime at Plaza Neptuno (it was a great meal!)
  • took in a live music concert downtown
  • saw folk dancing representing regions all over Mexico at a free outdoor exhibition (get downtown early if you want to snag a seat)
  • admired the requisite sunrises and sunsets
  • clocked some pool time, recharging our solar cells

And so our Puerto Vallartan vacation draws to a close. We’ve actually done much less here this time compared with previous visits, but we’re treating this as the calm before the coming storm awaiting us in Detroit. Brian and Mikey got home to their critters OK and we’re clearing out tomorrow morning early. Really not looking forward to leaving this weather, though it will be nice to visit the Detroit peeps and get Carolyn’s matrimony on. You can view all the photos from this set here.
