I can hardly believe that in two weeks, we'll be saying adiós to 2010! Looking back, there'd been many great milestones, but, also heartbreaking ones. Still, I feel extremely blessed and thankful in so many ways.
The final hurrah this year for me was a vacation I'd been planning almost a year for, and it came at no better time.
So I boarded a plane for a 5-hour flight...
And landed here...in beautiful Mexico!
A Club Med Resort with ALL the bells and whistles. And what made it even more special? It was an all-inclusive vacation with my Zumba family from around the world!
Our days were chock-ful! Eating, drinking and dancing...Zumba style! Of course, camera in tow wherever I wandered, so be prepared for lots of pictures! ;)
From early morning...
to late evening...
each view of the shore was breathtaking!
Tropical blooms galore!
Nothing beats a run on the beach!
From my bedroom window...just 4 days ago!
A cool palm reflection in an algae-densed pond
How's this for a backdrop during your massage?
There were lots and lots of these guys roaming around! Kind of creeped me out a little...
Hola, señor crab!
Catch me a fish, por favor!
More blooms along the shore...
I'm gonna miss these drop-dead, gorgeous sunsets!
Not to mention those mint mojitos...yum!!!
The last evening's event was a show stopper! They really went all out with the entertainment.
Christmas was the furthest thing from my mind even though there were many beautiful poinsettias in the lobby/dining areas. And, sure, there were tree lights, but, somehow, christmas lights on palm trees set a different mood.
All in all, a wonderful vacation under el sol!
Four days later, it's back to reality, winter in NJ! Oh well...
Hey, I can always dream about next year's trip!
Wishing everyone a Feliz Navidad! Many thanks again for your visits and comments, but, most importantly, I thank you ALL for your support and friendship. I love my blogging family!
