So, our trip to Puetro Vallarta, Mexico was a TON of fun!  I’m totally hoping to make it a yearly tradition… such a beautiful, relaxing, warm place to get a break from winter!  Healthy Eggs are just one of the many totally fabulous meals we enjoyed while there at Casa Velas!

 

While we were there, we thought it’d be fun to go deep sea fishing!  My first time on a small water craft on the ocean… and thus my first experience with Dramamine!!   AND oh my goodness, I was so glad to have that little miracle in my system.  I didn’t get sea sick but WOW!  I had a hard time staying awake.  Funny, actually!!

So, here are Em and I headed out to sea in the wee hours of the morning… waiting for the Dramamine to set it in!

As we were trolling around try to find some fish… we circled a little set of islands and saw lotsa of birds!  I snapped this pretty picture.

Whale Tail

Our most EXCITING find (just because not ONE fish was caught) were 3 different species of whales… it was unbelievablely cool to be that close to such huge mammals!  WOW!!  They were awesome : )

The whale pictures are so fun…

We walked along the boardwalk in “Old Town” and saw these incredible sand sculptures that locals build everyday…
