Freaking Fantastic!!

I'm back!!! I'm sorry for the wait but I wanted to have pics to post before I told you all about my trip. It was wonderful!

We had the best time in Puerto Vallarta!! On the first day, we couldn't get directly into our rooms so I checked out prices for a massage on the beach and on the way back to the bar, I got pulled into a game of bachi ball with a bunch of retirees from New Jersey, Germany, and Italy. My partner was Vincent, from Italy, and he was totally competitive and very funny. I ended up meeting this group every morning at 10:30 to play in their game. They called me Tex and we had a strange bond throughout my entire vacation. I even got up the guts to ask Warner, the German guy, about why he thought speedos were fantastic ... a very long and discombobulated explanation that I won't go into. My friends thought it was funny that I hooked up with a bunch of 70 year olds on the first day but how can you beat that?!! They didn't know what they were missing.

We went swimming with dolphins, pictures to come later. It was AMAZING!! We were pushed by their noses out of the water and just flew! Unfortunately, my bikini began taking water at an odd angle and I completely flashed the camera guy and all the innocent children in the area. Ouch!! I had to bail early, darn it!! At least I got waxed before the trip!

We took the zip line tour, OMG!! That was one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life. I am completely terrified of heights but it didn't matter when you were flying across the line.

We went to a foam party and, shockingly, I got hit on by a 20 something Australian. I was amazed but my boy just laughed and told me that I needed to believe him when he said I was a hot babe! LOL! It totally made my day, night, week, year ....

The rest of the time, we ate, boogie boarded in the ocean, relaxed in the pool, drank, and had a generally awesome time.

We're already planning our next trip. We are thinking Costa Rica or Jamaica. Anyone want to join us?!!
