to Sal in Paradise.
yes, I am hoping/ planning (fingers crossed) to get there this September for my guy's birthday. nothing carved in stone yet- so many choices. You have opened my eyes to Cancun - but I think Playa is still my first choice. Will let you know if we do- I could sure use some input!

Sal in Paradise
Cindy, email me, and I can give you some options. Sept is much cheaper; and Tonya will work with you to get you the best accommodations for your budget. I have lots of tips for you. Keep in touch. (Cancun was nice for one night, but not for long term rental for us, but others love it. Playa, Isla...the best.

Casa Turquesa vs Casa Marchon..
I just saw the Casa Turquesa video..wow. How nice! Which one would you recommend to a friend? I'd say Marchon as it is a Villa, right? Your besties are sure to cause a raucous! Wow so much fun. I'd have loved to see the Art in la Galeria de Casa Turquesa. Nice..I will admit that I go fast through the blogs and indulge in the photos..yet there is so much to lean from you Sal!! BTW Your B-day is coming. Can't wait to celebrate it with you. xo You are one special gal...Thanks for sharing your blogs with all of us.!!!!

Hotel vs villa
Yes Zully both are so different in experiences, both very nice but in very different ways. We enjoy our privacy, and so the hotel was great, but if it was much busier it would've been a different experience. It is a very lovely boutique hotel and I'd stay there again. And the house...it fits us to a T. We love it, and will be back I hope many times and I know the girls/family would love it because it's so peaceful, calm, yet fully equipped with everything and the pool, palapa are ideal for just resting and relaxing...I will make a date with you too because it's your big day coming up too! Zully we are so far overdue it's crazy. Let's make a date in August. xoxoxo

Hey, it sounds like you guys are having a blast down there and making the most of your time. Everything sounds just perfect -- I'm so envious! Keep on having fun and letting us know about your experiences. love, Cindy

Cin, it is just what the doctor order....we are getting our "prescription filled" on sun and fun. Every day is a new adventure...How are you??? I'll send you an email. Love to dad on Canada Day and his big day/birthday!!

Happy Travelling. Nice photos of your adventures and food
Hi Sal...I did find the response I sent to you.:-) Hidden in some earlier response that my computer did not alert me to. Thanks for Diego's Congrats..I shall pass your kind words..I was curious as to where that blog answer went.That is all. I originally thought there was an editor to responses sent to you, LOL. I thought 'they' did not like my 'ignoring the ads above your blogs ' to get to your actual blog! LOL.. I ought to be more patient with the Net. None ended in spasm. I was thinking "What did I press that it disappeared...? That is all...Thank God for this response as I got to see 'the better Beach vacation" photos. So nice of you two to have this chance to enjoy life in such beautiful beaches!!! You look as beautiful and young as when I first met you...It most be 1) genes, 2) love 3) Mexican sun and surf... Love and smiles to you two . Miss you. I forget how long your trip there is this year. You mentioned it, but I can remember which blog it was. Love to Lara, Rory and Ava.... and Martha of course. xoxo

On the road again

"On the road again" photo is so nice. Should be labelled "Love birds in Paradise" ;-)
Nice blogs Sally. I feel like we are travelling along with you. You said in your reply that you got my first comment to one of your first blogs (1 or 2), In it I mentioned that Diego had graduated, etc also... The system was working funny that day, but after a second try, it did say that it was sent. I do not see it anywhere...i wonder what happened to it... Anyway Love the one blog on parenting: I could feel the 'I miss you too kids' in between the lines. It will be fun when you gather all together again. happy sun, happy heat, happy Margaritas..happy Fifa ( I was sad for Mexico losing. Allegedly, Diego tells me that they have been disqualified 20 years in a row). I will check those stats, not that it matters, as Mexico played like champions. I wonder how it was IN Mexico when FIFA 2014 game of Mexico vs the Netherlands, was on yesterday???...You are so blessed to be there now. Enjoy it. Besos y abrazos mis amigos.

Yes Zully I got it!! Love to hear from you! Everything is beyond our expectations and we are unwinding! It is a beautiful quiet fun island with lots of charm. Love the island folks too. So warm and welcoming!

Hola!
Hey Sally! Sounds like you guys are having a great time! We've been to the little bar you're talking about- beer so cold it hurts you're teeth! We went there when we visited Isla Mujeres. So beautiful! Have an awesome time!

Hola!
It's a fun spot Christine...did you get to Punta Sur and the seafood restaurant on a cliff? It is amazing; we are going back for a lunch today. Life is just so hard here :) Thanks for the reply!

Hi Sal and Al. Awesome pictures. I love your blogs Sal. You have become really good a photo presentation. I could not avoid to notice all the commercials at the top of each photo, thinking you had written those also. Then I quickly caught on , ignored those 100 % and focused on your blog. Your words 'dizzily surreal' best describe your experience. You are blessed to have family and friends to help you accomplish this leg of the trip alone >> hence Happy honeymoon. Life should be made of many "mini and big moons". This is a biggie. You work hard for what you do, so you deserve a good break. I love the part where "Al' says you look more gorgeous than back then. I am sure he means it, and that it is not the "cerveza' talking. I got a gulp at the words "turquoise ocean". How nice to enjoy such God created beauty. Yes the smell of the ocean is a fave one of mine. Nothing like that other than baby fresh after bath. ;-) Have fun my friends. Hope your 'Villa" adventures are great. You are like love birds now...enjoy the peace and quiet...and soon your family will join in. Diego graduated back home also and was in the Principal's Honor roll. I was panicked when I did not see his name called..only because they saved the best for the end. :-) .It was funny to see me run up to the Marshalling Teacher to ask him if they forgot my son!!! So yes Congrats on Rory making Honors Roll. ..and congrats to all: Lara, Rory and Eva on the end of the school year and upcoming Summer fun. Enjoy my friends. Love and smiles, Zully xoxo

Helllooooo
Sooo good to hear of your honeymoon! I miss you dear friend. Life has been crazy this past year since Pat's dad's passing, and our weekends have not been our own since. The upside is his mom has made it through the storm (they were married 50yrs)! I'm working 3-11 temporarily until we get a new hire, and have Sunday and Mondays off. And now I'm told I have to have knee surgery! Lord love a duck my mom used to say! Misssss youuuuuuu!
28th June 2014

Hola!
Well with a push of a button I finally bit the bullet & Cancun HERE WE COME! :) July 14-24 staying at The Ritz Carleton. (hope it's a good one?...) The fact that it has "Ritz" in the name sounds good to me!! Maybe we will see you guys? :) Have fun!!! Enjoy the Honeymoon! ;) Celine
