Quintana Roo - dia dos

Needing to keep in touch with those at home...I have become acquainted with the cybercafe onsite at our beautiful resort.

I have never been to this part of the world.. as we landed in Cancun, I could see why people come to visit from all over the world.

As you know each airline passenger is allowed two pieces of "baggage".  From the plane window, Teamster watched his second piece receive special treatment from the baggage handlers as it came out of the cargo area.

Immediately following check in we opened his "baggage" to make sure his precious cargo had survived the flights intact. (whew!!)

Our resort is about an hour south of Cancun on the Mayan Riviera outside of the town, Playa Del Carmen.  We shuttled into town today to purchase supplies and walk around.

Since Sunday is the the Lord's day of rest, we are gonna hang out by the pools and beach front....all day long.  (I never even do that at home!!) Tonight we are having dinner prepared by a visiting French chef.....

Looks delightful. Never been to Cancun. Enjoy every minute. Best regards to The Teamster. Glad his special cargo made it. When you need a Dr. Pepper, you need a Dr. Pepper!!!

Have a terrific time. Big hug to you both. :)

Very nice! And that's quite the efficient use of the second bag.

Mimi Lenox said...

I laughed when I saw the Dr. Pepper. Cracked me up.
Have a wonderful time and please keep the pictures coming. What a gorgeous view from the plane.
Yay for you and Teamster!!

I hope that the Teamster waited a little while before opening any of those cans of Dr. Pepper!

Looks to be a lovely place and it sounds like you are having a great time just relaxing and enjoying.

Let's see . . . Four inches of snow yesterday. A high of 24º today with a wind chill making it feel like 11º, The roads are just sheets of ice. Hmmmm, Oh baby do I wish I was sipping a Dr Pepper with the two of you instead of being here!

Bond said...

Most excellent....

I love he brought his own Diet Dr. pepper...I hate when I can't get a Pepsi
