Bringing In The New Year~In Cabo!!

Ok, what's to think about??!! Are you kidding me?? Well, I am going with, or without you. Who in their right mind would NOT want to spend a week in Cabo, on the beach, warm weather, sun and gorgeous scenery..........my husband! My loving, adorable, hard working husband of 37 years, that's who.
I suppose I should start at the beginning: my husbands boss offered us a week in Cabo in his villa. Now, to be honest with you, we did this last year as well. (Spoiled you say? You bet ya!) Anyway, this week was to begin the day after Christmas and end New Year's Day. My sweet, loving, adorable husband wasn't too sure the timing was right. WHAT??!!!!! No sand, no beach, no Pacific Ocean.........wah.........but guess what? WE DID GO!!!
Aren't they just too cute, pelicans down in the harbor. We saw them when we took a tour to watch the whales........love these little guys.
This is the villa we called home for a week. It has three bedrooms and four baths,..sooooo, we invited my husband's brother, wife and their son who just returned from Afghanistan. They also went with us last year. Because the flights coming back were so booked, they had to return a day earlier than us..........some people just have a hard life.

The view from our top patio, (we have two) a hot tub with plenty of room for us all.

The downstairs patio has our own private and heated pool. I could get used to this.....

Right off the bedrooms, we swam every morning and last thing before saying goodnight.

Remember the Eagles and the song "Hotel California?" Well, here it is, right in Todos Santos. We went and spent the day in Todos Santos, ate at the hotel and just shopped.

This light fixture is in the lobby of the hotel, I thought it was beautiful.

Altho you could not get in here unless you were a guest, I wanted to take a few pictures of these lovely rooms.

We had lunch here and the food was excellent. I would recommend this to everyone.

We found lots and lots of tourists at the hotel.

I am in love with this fountain and found myself trying to figure out how to make one.

It's so pretty and I wondered if I bought pots and urns, could I put them all together and create something this gorgeous for my yard.
The sun is setting........
Going down.......
We are one happy family, Happy New Year to all, we are so blessed!

Hey, I'm in love with that fountain too! Heavens, what do you have to do to own a villa in Cabo?

Vicki said...

Wow, Char!! Now that is my idea of a wonderful vacation!! I am so glad you were able to go and have such a fun and relaxing time. I definitely think you could make one of those fountains (you are so creative, I am sure you could figure it out!). Thank you for sharing your beautiful trip with us. Is it cold in Arizona? We are supposed to have below freezing temps here in Central Texas, brrr! for a few days! Much love to you, sweet friend! Vicki
