I Just Got Back From Puerto Viarta

If you have been wondering where I have been the last two weeks, I have been having fun in Puerto Viarta, Mexico. And just in case you have not been wondering where I have been, now you know, or maybe you don't care, but I am back and ready to share the first post of many pictures.
Look closely and you will see coconuts hanging from the palm trees above. Just too pretty for words.

There are eight pools on the grounds and the grounds are beautiful as you can see from the above picture.
Coming from the desert, the green was a very welcome scene.

If you hit the season just right, you can catch the men climbing the coconut trees and cutting the fruit down. They climb up barefoot and use ropes. The fruit comes down in bunches.

One complex of many where we stayed. We got lucky this trip and were on the beach. We kept the door open and could hear the surf all night. What a wonderful way to sleep.

This was a very relaxing place, beautiful flowers that I will be showing tomorrow for Pink Saturday.

While walking along the grounds, we spotted a cruise ship.

A Holland America docked for the day.

I have seen the workers take stems from hibiscus, roses and other plants and just stick them in dirt to grow. Talk about having a green thumb. I wish it was that easy for me!!
I just love a place where you can't jog. Now that's for me.
So much more to come. This is the first post of many. I took lots of pictures of the flowers and some critters too.

Girl, I just did a blog post about Puerto Vallarta and where we always stayed when we went down there and it looks like Los Tules in your photos. Is that the place? It is my favorite place in Mexico to stay, sugar!
