Goodbye Cabo...

I guess all good things must come to an end. 

Ain't it the truth?? (I actually believe there are a few good things that never end. But that's a topic for another day!)

I just returned from a lovely time with friends in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was truly refreshing and relaxing.
We stayed in the same lovely home (owned by our good friends Jackie and Kirk) that we have stayed in before. You may remember it from posts past...

 These, above are shots of the interior main floor. They don't do justice to the space at all. I wish I had taken a better shot of the domed brick ceilings! 

And these next three are shots off the veranda, catching in a bit of the pool, and down to the beach which is breaking just about 50-100 or so feet below.


 Once again, the camera can't do it any justice. The view is absolutely breathtaking! And to hear the waves crash below as you sit by the pool is simply beyond mesmerizing.

 This, below is a shot off the breakfast deck, showing Kirk, Jackie, and my husband Hal relaxing in the pool. It was the PERFECT temperature.


 Hot tub...

 A view of the interesting architecture on the rooftop of one of the homes below, nestled into the rocks on the shore.

 This stretch of beach is just to the right from where I stood on the veranda, looking out over the Pacific. It is the same stretch of sand where the movie "TROY" was filmed. Or close to it.

And this is (a very fuzzy) picture of my friends Carrie in black, myself in the middle, and Jackie in the purple...her signature color!

Anyway...I'm sure I could put up more pics, but I did not want to bore you all to tears with my travelogue.

It was a great getaway for Hal and me, all thanks to our dear friends who invited us there to stay! I am grateful for such blessings in my life. The friendships are the most important part of all of it, of course. They make it all so much more fun!

Thanks again Jackie and Kirk, and Carrie and David, for a wonderful trip! 

Now back to the quilts I have to finish!! Remember those?

I'll keep you posted...

I would never want to leave this place!! Just breathtaking. I'm so glad that you and Hal had a wonderful vacation! Love the top you are wearing in the photo. I recognize your pattern!

I am so jealous! This looks absolutely gorgeous. The pool is so inviting and the scenery is stunning. I can almost feel the warmth from the screen. Whilst I can look out of the window and see gorgeous cherry blossom, I would rather be feeling the warmth of the sun in this location.

Take me away from the snow and take me back! Looks fabulous. It was great fun.

Hi Lila - I need some friends like yours. I think I stared at the Cabo pictures for a few minutes with my jaw dropped and visions of all the different places I would just lay out with a book and a Diet Coke. I'm glad you had a break. You work so hard and you deserve it.
