From the mountains to the tropics--and an accident

I don't want to make you jealous but I'm now in Puerto Vallarta at the Canto del Sol Resort on the beach. My sister and I ran away from the grey clouds for a week and we're settling in nicely.

 This morning we managed to change from the worst room in the place (overlooking the huge air conditioning units that sounded like an airplane taking off) ...

to a lovely one overlooking the pool and the sunset.

We also arranged for a couple of tours later on in the week and then hit the beach with a couple of mango margaritas. These drinks make a person feel very mellow. So mellow in fact that we both purchased a silver necklace from one of the beach vendors after bargaining very hard. Plus I bought a beachy dress so now we are set for the next six days.

Update: This was written last night before Jan got up in the night and got confused about the bathroom layout and ended up falling into the shower and fracturing her wrist.

Here she is yesterday afternnoon....

and again today wearing her sling and her immobilization device.

We spent the morning at the hospital, which was excellent but it's put a bit of a crimp in our style. Jan's being a trouper and is determined not to let this ruin our trip. But she's on pain killers and so it's an early night for us tonight.


  1. Ouch! Well, enjoy the rest of your time there.

  2. Oh I am so sorry to hear about Jan ! Guess no body surfing for her then ?
    Your photos are so pretty. Must be nice after all the cold up north.
    I know you love Mexico but not for me anymore.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. So sorry, Jan. That sucks! How ironic that both your siblings have osteoporosis but you break a bone. If it's any consolation, and it's not, I've dislocated my shoulder twice and cut my heel wide open in Maui. At least I know how it feels. Um, how are the bougainvillea?


I really appreciate your comments.
