Bucerias (Day 2)

Word of the Day: Alberca (Al-burka) OR Piscina (Piss-keena)
                             Swimming pool

Of course, we started out by sleeping in until 8:15 am, but then that should not surprise any of you!! We met Bob and Danna for breakfast. Afterwards, they walked into the market in Bucerias, about 1 mile away, and we lounged around the poolside. It is a hard life.....

 Yes, indeed...

 I think Doug likes it too!!

 Mr. Big Pants arrives.....

...and his family too!!
That was it. I know, we are perpetually lazy and relaxed but, hey, that is why we are here.
We had a great dinner with our buddies, Bob and Danna, at the Mediterranean restaurant, over by Building 6 (for those who know the place). It was amazing: Certainly puts to rest all those ideas that all-inclusive foods are sub-par. I know, that many years ago being at an all-inclusive was like feeding at a trough. That has NOT been the way for a very long time. There is simply too much competition out there to not have great food and services. We have been very pleased and tonight's dinner certainly raised the bar. Tomorrow night we are dining at one of the on-site restaurants that serves Brazilian fare. Watch out for my title for that blog post!! There is NO extra charge to eat at these spots, only a bit of advance planning. In order to eat at these a-la-carte restaurants, "someone" in your group (...aka Bob) has to come down to the lobby at 7:30 am to put in the reservations. You can now do 2 days at a time. (Susann, take note of these lovely foodie pictures!!)

 Travelling and dining buddies. Actually, just buddies in general!!

 Beautifully presented lasagna.....

 Doug had Salmon Medallions on rice...

 Right to the bottom right of that bright light is our suite...

 Nightly show. We will catch more of these this week...

Exhausted party ducks.....
Yup, that was the day. Enjoyed the pool and a few drinks and LOTS of nice cold water and lime.
Tonight, as we sit in the lobby for internet, there is a family a little ways away that has brought out a guitar and doing a sing-along with the entire family, including Grandma in a wheelchair. So nice. Whoever is singing is really good and the elderly family members in the group are really enjoying themselves. I would assume that the singer is a grandchild. Imagine how wonderful that feels to them. Thanks for letting us listen in on your special time. Love it......
Okay, just because we are here, doesn't mean that we aren't keeping an eye on that beautiful grandson of ours!!
His parents say, please ignore the laundry pile....what laundry pile???
Love you, buddy!!!!
Cheers friends!! Wish we could have more family and friends here with us!!


  1. While you're down in that area, you should go check out Altarose Rancho RV Park and say hi to Gary and Jean. It's only about 12 kms inland from where you are.

  2. It is a great camping spot, isn't it? We were there last year. They really treated us well!! If we go by, we'll give them your regards!!

  3. ¿Otra nueva blusa, Nanc? Muy bonita, mi amiga!
