Nature Friday ~ November 23, 2018

We’re back to pawticipate in Rosy and the Boy’s Nature Friday and while my vacay was fabulous…it’s always good to come home. Even if there was a 60 degree difference in temperatures. While I love this time of year, I will confess to rather enjoying the balmy warm days on the beach. For those who didn’t  know where I spent the week, I was in sunny Puerto Vallarta ‘staying calm on the fun side of the Wall’ as some of the locals like to refer to it. Not only were the temperatures warm, the locals were too and graciously kind helping our family navigate a different culture and language of which we are not at all fluent. I was touched by their generosity of spirit and kindness.

But back to Nature Friday. Imagine waking up to a view like this every morning on your way to breakfast. What’s not to appreciate, especially given that I left in a snowstorm with temps hovering in the low 20’s? The clear blue skies and water and remarkably clean beaches with people enjoying fun activities in the sun…it was a soul cleansing week. And sunsets that made you ooh and aww with their incredible color.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving; for our part, we were reflective in our gratitude…for health, happiness, love and fellowship with our family and fur-iends, both the 2 and 4-legged versions and naturally for you, dear reader. It’s days like yesterday where I am reminded just how blessed and fortunate I am. Have a great weekend, savor those left-overs and stay safe if you’re brave enough to actually go out shopping.

Live, love, bark! 🐾

    Never been to PV but sun/sand destinations are not among our top spots simply because, well, that was our day to day environment for so many years. I guess that’s why we end up in your neck of the woods so often these days!

      Normally I’m not a beach chick, but confess the sound of surf sure was relaxing. It is hard to beat the mountains though. 🏔 v. 🏝

      For the record, my first trip to PV. It’s a great place to visit and was charmed by their vibrant art scene.

      The downside of going to someone else’s house is no leftovers. ☹️ Hope it was at least a lovely get together.

    Yes a lovely sight to wake up to each morning. However, I am not a beach person, I prefer mountains to beaches – in spite of the fact that this is an almost flat area. Perhaps the preference for mountains is a “Scottish thing”. Who can tell? Glad you all had a great, enjoyable and relaxing time in the sun. You deserved it.

    I love going to Mexico beaches. And yes, the people have always been great. Except for one of the bartenders on the beach. I asked (very nicely) if he might add just a bit more alcohol to my umbrella drink (it tasted like straight juice and sugar) and he got mad and filled it to the top with tequila. Undrinkable, LOL. .

        Not me. I’d have just ordered some OJ or some similar kind of fruit juice. I know how to dilute. Drinks and passive aggressive macho dudes 😇

    Wonderful!
    You are making me *that* much closer to crashing my sisters’ cruise in March…
    Hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous and that you are not getting crushed in the BF madness…

    Welcome back to the 303; at least the current weather shouldn’t be as much of a shock as the weather when you left! I hope that you returned rested and refreshed

      It has been somewhat of an adjustment weather wise, but I don’t mind the cold too much. The wind…that’s a different story. It was a lovely rejuvenating time.

    Spent a week there many years ago. I’m glad you enjoyed every minute. As I remember is was in the 80s every single day. Perfect weather.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

      I’m guessing it’s quite toasty in the summer, but last week was picture perfect all around.

      Though I would miss having 4 seasons like I do currently, I could actually see myself living happily there.

      Thanks. It’s good to experience it all. I prefer cooler weather, but the beach is a wonderful place to visit.

    I could use a week like that. We are experiencing record breaking low temperatures. It was 19 degrees this morning. That’s January weather and really the worst of January. Boogers. I love the beach. Water is so relaxing.

      Awk! That is cold. Hope things warm up soon and there’s some relaxing beach in your near future. Stay warm.
