Hola Chicos!

We had a great time! Warm weather, great restaurants and good company!
Our condo is the top floor on the furthest left of this building.

Murray's view from parasailing in the bay

Downtown Puerto Vallarta

Our first night there (Dec. 24th) we went out to a French restaurant Cafe des Artistes for Grandma Sis's birthday. The food was AMAZING! (above is my appetiser - sashimi)

We told them it was Grandma's birthday - so they brought out a dessert for her - a large glass plate with TONS of desserts and wow were they fantastic!

The view from our apartment down onto the neighbour's balcony.

They had gorgeous sculptures along the boardwalk.

This one symbol was all over the place, but we were never really sure what it meant.

They also had rocks precariously balanced all along the beach - really amazing!

Murray & I


Ahhhh nothing like a cold Corona on the beach in Mexico!

Group portrait before dinner - from left Mariah, Marcus, Mom, Mandie, Dad, Megan, Murray and I.

Out to dinner at a fantastic Mexican restaurant - the Margaritas were lethal! (also the home made tequila!)


The pirate ship that sails by every night and sets off fireworks with a stunning sunset in the background. This was our view from a great restaurant about a block from our place - SO gorgeous!

Our last night we went up the mountain to a restaurant with fantastic views of the city! It rained really hard though - which gave us this amazing view!
Me telling Murray all is 'OK'
We did 2 dives - and they were great! Saw lots of unusual fish, eels and water snakes!
Me with a very fogged up left part of my googles on our second dive

Dad with a puffer fish - it had the cutest little fins! You had to be super careful handling it though.

So, a GREAT trip! We went to lots of fantastic restaurants, got some sun, caught up with family - and took a LOT of airplane trips! It was a nice break, and hard to come back to cold London. Looking forward to 2007 though - should be an interesting year!

Me with my gorgeous dog Minnie - oh I miss her! She was so good too - I put these ears on her and she posed for the camera! She was SO SO lonely from everyone being in Mexico - would follow me around the house l ike a shadow!

And..... a gross picture Murray insisted I post - I only posted it small cause- ewwwww. (so don't scroll down if you don't want to be grossed out). We saw this in the grocery store and couldn't believe it!

We think this is a Cow's head - it was in the refridgerated meats section at the grocery store - I nearly yelled out loud when we walked by it - gross!

EEEEEEEEuuuuuuuuwwwwww! Glad I already ate breakfast!
We miss you already, and Minnie is following me around today now that you're gone! Jager likes to "play" with her, but she certainly prefers humans!
How was your flight home? No Gordos? Love you loads!

Great photos and a great holiday. Next year plan to stay longer. Grandma, Mandie and I went to The Marina today and had a lovely day. We are going to where they filmed Night of the Iguana in a day or so and we have the buses down pat. It's an adventure and we are loving it. Love you. Take care and stay warm. Love, Mom
