Vacation…

Secrets Silversands- View from out room

Well we have been home for a few days now, but i left the day after we got home for quilt retreat on Friday.  Our trip was great, wonderful weather, met a lot of nice people, lazed around a lot, ate a lot and read all three of those books i brought.  Played beach volleyball for hours some days, with the 20 year olds.  They didn’t think I was too bad for someone who was as old as their Mom.  I even got Nick to play and he hates Volley ball, just because he isn’t a star athlete at it.  I think he was tired of watching and wondering when we were going to be done, so he just joined in…
We met some cool people and spent time in the pool and eating with them…Noel and Jamie- the honeymooners from  GA.  He is originally from Boston and she from Pittsburgh, so this gave Nick and Noel a lot to talk about with that baseball rivalry between NY and Boston…so they are buds now and have ongoing text conversations…bets about next season and other stuff guys can harass each other about.  They were the cutest couple.  I just love them both…the more time we spent with him the more he reminded me of “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson….this photo below is the one where he looks like him the most…

Lisa and "the Rock"

Jamie and Noel our new friends from Atlanta

Heather & Mark from Minnesota

So after Jamie and Noel left, we just happened to find more new friends…Heather and Mark from MN asked us if we wanted to go deep sea fishing…sure that was on my list-NOT, but oh well, what i don’t do for the men in my life…They found another couple from Detroit to go along, so we got up at 5:00am -to drive to Cancun to go fishing….I will let the pics tell the rest of the story…I don’t want to rub it in too bad…

still looking for that big one...

What the "girls" caught....

the "boy's" catch....but they were prettier!

Monica and Brett were the other couple who joined us on this excursion.  After the day of fishing Nick and I had a lobster cruise planned on a Pirate ship called the “black pearl”  It was a lot of fun…more than catching the fish…

the other pirate ship-we had a fight and the black pearl took the booty....

Nick Sandwich..

the old chick and the young chick...

Nick & Noel----hmmm sounds like bothers names....

Pirate fight!

Last Night....in Mexico---Pedro and Mama Ceta
